People compare themselves to each other. I don’t know if it’s an evolutionary thing or something we’ve conditioned ourselves to do over the course of thousands of years. But, it’s something we do. It’s not inherently a bad thing, as it helps us learn where we need to improve ourselves. If we see Bob buildingContinue reading “Meditating My Way Out of Comparison”
Imagine how much time and energy we could save if we just focused on our own lives. When we hide behind screens and act as if the joy of others affects us in any way, we waste so much of our lives. Imagine how much happier we could be.
