Comparison

Why is it that we go through life with constant comparison?

We are always compared to norms, to others, to expectations, and ultimately against ourselves. It doesn’t seem that we can go through life feeling like we are the best that we can possibly be because as we get better we compare ourselves to greater and greater things. This doesn’t seem like a fair thing to do to ourselves, but yet we do this everyday.

Is there anyway to get away from comparison?

Can we ever truly accept ourselves for who we are or what we become?

If we can, will that make us happy?

I don’t know the answers and that is why I ask you to Ponder This.
