Comparisons- Helpful or Damaging?

18 Aug

From the Heart

Louise Gibson





When we compare, we want to be the best.
The paradox of “fit in and stand out.”
Comparison is the thief of happiness.
Acceptance of our self and others is what
Life is all about.


Be kind to yourself.
Accept yourself for who and what you are.
It will relieve that inner strife.
In God’s eyes, you are already a star.


Take time for creativity.
It’s important to your well being. don’t you see
Is achieving and competing truly deserving of
all your attention and energy?


Have you made achieving too important
and creativity as no longer of value?
Re-think your priorities, be kind to yourself
You will be a much more contented you.


“Why do we struggle to be something we
are not when God created us to be a
unique flower in His garden?”

    Why didn’t you take credit for your quote? It is beautifully expressed. You truly are a unique flower in God;s garden.

      I forgot I said it and thought my name at the bottom was a typo. Thank you for remembering.
