Comparison

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Theodore Roosevelt
 

Be cautious when you’re comparing yourself to others. You’re a singular being, once you’re an adult. You have your own particular, specific problems — financial, intimate, psychological, and otherwise. Those are embedded in the unique broader context of your existence. Your career or job works for you in a personal manner, or it does not, and it does so in a union interplay with the other specifics of your life. You must decide how much of your time to spend on this, and how much on that. You must decide what to let go, and what to pursue.

Dr Jordan B Peterson
 
Rule 4: Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today
