One Comic Sums Up Why You Should Never Compare Yourself to Others

Jealousy, although an unpleasant emotion, rears its ugly head now and then. It stirs up feelings of insecurity, inadequacy and discontent. It’s normal because we’re human, but letting the green-eyed monster consume you will lead to a life of misery and unhappiness.

Russian artist Igor Kalashnikov clearly sees the pointlessness of wasting away energy envying what others have and what you don’t. He whipped up a comic strip to help readers keep jealousy away for good.  

Remember, you’re not in a competition with anyone but yourself. As former president Theodore Roosevelt once said: “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
