Does anyone else have issues with comparing yourself to others? I feel like I am always comparing myself to the people around me. Sometimes it is based on job, salary, possessions, or social status. It really is something that is hard to train my mind not to do. On top of it, I know it does not please God because it is basically saying that I am not happy with the way he made me. We should all be happy with the blessings he has given us and I know I need to work on it.
The funny thing is that this is not a new problem for me. When I was a kid I used to stress about how small I was. I was what you would call a “late bloomer.” I relate to this image because there was even a time when my sister, who is three years younger than me, was almost as tall as me. I used to stress out so much because I thought she was going to be taller than me. Of course, that never actually happened, but, even if it did it should not matter. Does it really matter if you are taller than someone?
