Do you often find that you’re comparing yourself to others? Perhaps to a family member, a close friend, or someone famous on social media? If the answer is yes, then welcome to the club. The sad truth is that it’s the reality for too many of us.
Why do nobody ever accept their situations in life? When you listen to your friend who’s dating/married a guy about how complicated and annoying he is, you start thinking about your life and always saying, “Why can’t I find someone, yet? I want to find my own significant other. I want to settle in as she settles in.”
What’s even funnier, the fact is while you’re listening to their problems, your friend is thinking how amazing single life is and how you don’t worry about these kind of problems.
Social comparison starts at a very early age. Children discover very quickly that not everyone lives the same life or has the same opportunity as them. They see how some friends have more toys or better clothes, or live in nicer houses. As these children grow older and become teenagers, the comparing doesn’t stop. It often intensifies and turns into negative self-talk. Thoughts like “I’m not good enough,” “I can’t do anything right,” or “I’ll never make it” slowly start creeping into their minds. This kind of gloomy thinking causes them to develop anxiety and depression-like impulses, which may continue well into their adulthood years
It’s really sick that people actually think each person is living a better life than their own, seriously, people go through so much but they just don’t speak about it.
Why don’t we just appreciate what we have for once and stop looking at other people’s lives and instead, focus on our own life?
Comparison actually is what actually takes away happiness. You can never feel happy when you always feel like there’s something that you don’t have, that you lack something. Comparing yourself to others only makes your life difficult and brings you misery and pain. Instead, try using others as motivation to work harder and do better.
Comparison will actually sabotage your progress. It’ll drain your energy and happiness and instead of actually getting worked done, you’ll stay hours complaining about other people’s achievements. If you spend your days comparing yourself to other people’s achievements, you’ll never get anything accomplished. You must invest all your energy into pursuing your own dreams and goals. Don’t waste your precious time for something that’ll do you nothing but drain you.
You can’t physically change who you are. You are you. So, complaining about not having the perfect body or not having the perfect clear skin won’t do you any good. You’ll always be you. You’ll never be anyone else. And although it might be hard to believe for some of us, this is actually a good thing. As Jen Sincero says:
There will never be anyone exactly like you. You were given special gifts and talents to share with the world, and even though everybody has special gifts and talents, nobody will use theirs quite the same way you do. — Jen Sincero
No one has a perfect life. Although you might think that a lot of people are leading an amazing life with no down sides, know that this isn’t true. People are pretty good actors. You may see an Instagram picture of a couple looking so in love while in fact, they don’t speak to each other, they don’t even communicate. People like showing off that they’re living the best days of their lives while in fact, they’re the saddest people you could actually know. Don’t ever judge someone by how much followers, likes, comments or pictures they have. Judge them by what they actually have in their life. Every single person on this Earth experiences problems and challenges throughout their lives. No one is exempt from this. Some people are just better at keeping it together, at least on the outside. So next time you compare yourself to your friend or neighbor, remember that you probably do not know every detail about their life.
There will always be someone better than you in something. And you will always always be better than someone in something. It’s life. We complete one another. So the sooner you accept it, the happier you’ll be. Someone getting a better grade than you in a subject isn’t the end of the world; you’re doing your best and you’ll definitely do better than them in another subject. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. There will always be someone better than you at one point in your life. At some point in your life, someone will beat you to whatever it is you’re after. You can’t always win at everything in life. All you have to do is work hard and try your best, and whatever is meant to be will fall into place for you at the right moment. Just try your hardest, you can do it!
Start appreciating your life and everything you have because some people actually wish for half as much as you have!

So, What Was Up With 2021
Bullying in Egyptian Youth and the Girl Code
We have all been victims of bullying in our lives, but at what extent will it affect our society? Egyptian youth are rapidly emerging and off to a bright future, but is it really bright when you are crippled and demoralized from one another? Manners are essential and influential in our lives, talking graciously, smiling to another, and embracing positivity is part of who we are as humans. A complex obstacle that faces our generation daily is that we hinder each other with words, actions, and coarseness. The unpolished generation is daily becoming, more vulgar, as they find each other foolish and insane for the most unreasonable ways. Common Communication with one another is found to be ignorant and arrogant. Girls between ages 14 to 30, in educational institutions, are extremely abusive to each other, and scandalizers are extremely common. The circulation of rumors, and barbaric actions to one another are also extremely common. Usually, reffering to the girl code, girls are supposed to support each other, and not backstab one another. A person who does not support one another, or causes botherations to another, is considered harmful to society. Another perplexing issue facing society is emotional manipulation and group circulation against one person. Emotions are reactions over anything or occurrences that happen. This dark circle of manipulation and mind games can drive people to collapse. Emotionally manipulating a person, or grouping against a person, is not a trait to be celebrated but a trait that is found to be pathetic. Only a person who is pessimistic and miserable will emotionally manipulate a person. In addition, they tend to degrade from one another, quarrel, and give off cold behavior. The creation of scenes, quarrelling, and humiliating each other publicly is a despairing issue that people face. Quarrelling, shouting, swearing, and humiliating between people will be a mortifying issue for our society in the future. How can we expect people to live with such grief and anger? When people respond to an individual’s natural behavior with a rude manner, the individual will feel negative emotions. Behavior differs from one person to another as a result of upbringing. when a person talks, acts, or tries to approach you with physical violence, then the answer is a big NO. Even if you’re at the street or anywhere in the world physical violence is not permitted. Once again, even if you’re approaching someone, physical violence is not permitted by any means. An obstacle that is also faced in our society is that people enforce their opinions, rules, or orders on each other. As fellow equals, I respect you, but I don’t need to listen to you or do what you want. I do belong to myself, and so do you. In an age of innovation and impowered women changing the world, we still have the urge to break each other down. With ladies like Angela Davis, Malala, Madonna, Annie Easly, Kamala Harris, Halimah Yacob, and Mary Barra, it is clear that the world is filled with smart, outstanding women. Therefore, women shouldn’t breakdown each other. Instead, they should support and empower one another, in order to shine the light on more women of glory. Spread love and positivity to your sister rather than your inner hate. Spread love to receive love.
