Today in this video, John Keegan explains why “To Compare is to Despair”: by comparing your self to others you are playing a dangerous game of self-sabotage.
True, a select few people use comparison to fuel their success, but those are far and few between. For this reason, things such as social media, where people are painting this fake persona and picture of their (fake) “Perfect” lives, is extremely toxic to one’s mental health. It puts a halt on progression out of sheer jealousy and frustration.
Be yourself don’t let others alter your path.
