Comparing Is a Deadly Habit It may sound harsh to say comparing yourself to others is a disease, but I really believe it’s like a slow-growing cancer on your soul. It may not kill your spirit overnight, but little by little, year 32 IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD by year, it destroys your chances for happiness. ” ( The envious person dies not once, but as often as his rival lives in applause. —Baltasar Gracián Material possessions aren’t inherently bad. A Mercedes 300 isn’t evil. It’s the endless and constant pursuit of material possessions, and the belief that those possessions have the power to make you happy, that is problematic.

The pursuit of material possessions is like an addiction. Once you start, you can’t stop. There’s a wonderful Hindu story about an earnest young seeker who goes to a wise man and asks for advice on how he can achieve spiritual enlightenment. The wise man tells the young seeker to renounce material possessions. The young seeker eagerly sells all he owns, except for a loincloth, and begins wandering the countryside. After only a few days of wandering, the young seeker decides to sit by a stream and wash his loincloth.

The issue isn’t whether or not someone has a right to be unhappy about themselves or their situation. The issue is that no one should be comparing themselves to others. Grant the Dishmans their pain and you grant yourself the pain you might feel over equally trivial matters. It really doesn’t matter whether you perceive yourself coming up short in a vital or frivolous aspect of life. * *Although I don’t come across it as often, there’s another type of comparison trap: believing others don’t measure up to you.
