Compare Leads to Despair

Comparing ourselves to others is a game that ends badly no matter which way you play it. If you act as if you're worse off than others, you will believe it, and you will live your life feeling inferior. If you act as if you're superior to others, you'll believe that too -- and you'll live a life of arrogance; no one will want to be around you. This little mantra says it all: "Compare leads to despair."
Get off your But, por Sean Stephenson, pg. 147Comparing ourselves to others is a game that ends badly no matter which way you play it. If you act as if you're worse off than others, you will believe it, and you will live your life feeling inferior.
