“Comparison is the thief of joy.” - Theodore Roosevelt

The year was August 6, 1991 and the World Wide Web became publicly available.

The comparison game has been around since the dawn of man but with the advent of the internet, the game was kicked into high gear.

The comparison game leads nowhere fast, as it is probably the most utilized self-defeating behavior known to mankind.

As a result, people unknowingly give their power away consciously or unconsciously by comparing themselves to others on numerous social media platforms.

Especially, young children and youths have been victimized by this online comparison game.

You must believe that you are special and unique and that no one in this universe has your DNA.

Joyce Meyer expressed it with the following. “We’ve all got the stuff about us that we just don’t understand. Did you ever think that maybe you were in the wrong line when God was handing stuff out and you just kind of wondered what happened?”

You are perfect just the way you are.

Implant this into your being.

No one in this universe has your DNA. 

Stop this nonsense of comparing yourself to anyone else on the planet. Grab a hold of yourself. They can’t even come close. When you believe this with your entire body, mind and spirit the essence of who you really are exudes into your outer world. 

As a result, people want to be around you and they want to follow you because they want to and not because they have to.

In order to get rid of the naysayers and believe that your DNA is unique to you, persist in spite of present circumstances and stop the comparison game once and for all.

As you embark on this personal journey, abandon the need for approval from anyone. You’re perfect just the way you are right now and you are in a process of a wonderful unfoldment according to God’s divine plan.

The continual building of your self-esteem reduces the amount of stress and anxiety in your life and as a result the comparison game is no longer your game of choice.

Therefore, do not compare yourself to anyone whatsoever as this derails any possibility of fulfilling your destiny in this lifetime.

What’s on the other side?

Nobody cares and neither should you.

Carpe Momentum.
