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!

The Chinese Secret Recipe to Curing COVID-19
The world has been struggling to find a cure to help end this coronavirus once and for all. Many lives are being taken away from us and others are getting severely ill due to the symptoms they are carrying.
While searching desperately for a cure, the most people that have been doing so are pharmaceutical companies. Day and night, they’re looking for ways and drugs to use in hopes of ending this all. Testing malaria drugs and even the Japanese anti-viral “Avigan” has commenced but non has proven effective so far.
What if we’re looking in wrong places and testing all the wrong medications? the Chinese have been digging somewhere else for a cure, somewhere more holistic per say.
Throughout the pandemic, they have been using holistic methods such as herbs and natural remedies in order to cure or simmer down the virus, so far, results have proven that these remedies may actually help put a stop to all of this.
A Chinese scientist claims that the combination of flowering plants and honeysuckle, traditional medication per say, can actually help fight the deadly virus. people have shopped for medications, emptying pharmacies in search of a remedy.
studies and testes are on the run to find out if using a Japanese plant alongside natural remedies will heal COVID-19 patients.Traditional medication was widely known during the SARS epidemic which is why maybe, just maybe, we’re be lucky enough if this is actually the cure.
Some doctors are concocting a series of herbs for each individual who has been infected with the virus. So far, it actually has been working to help maintain the virus and lessen the severity of virus. These doctors explain the importance of precision by having to put specific doses for each patient depending on how badly the virus has affected them. In fact, when asked about how many herbs they use, the doctor replied that they concoct at least 400 herbs per patient!
If this actually works, we will forever be thankful to the ancient remedies our ancestors have been using. Maybe this is just it, maybe we don’t need medication rather than natural herbal remedies. All we’ll have to do is test trials and wait and see what will be more effective.

The World Discussing Easing Down Restrictions & Curfews
Around the globe, the coronavirus pandemic has hit really hard and has changed the circumstances of the way we live to the extreme. For 2020, we had so many plans and life changing events that were said to take place, but little did we know, the tables would be turned, and all of that will be put to a halt.
Unfortunately for us, the entire world was forced to undergo lockdown as well as severe precautionary measures to keep safe from the virus and to keep other individuals safe.
Social distancing has become the hype of the century, where many campaigns are being created to discuss the sole purpose and importance of social distancing. We were stripped from out rights to hug our beloved and to gather around and make memories together. At the end of the day, we know it’s for our sake and safety as well as the future safety of the entire world which is why we have been abiding by the rules.
For those who break the law, each country and city has manifested their own set of fines depending on the culture, population, and mindset of the community. Another downfall the coronavirus is that all places that may practice social gathering and include people having to be within close distance were shut down.
Malls, movies theaters, restaurants, any place you could imagine. Very few fast food chains were left open but not for people to dine in rather than for people to deliver all the way to your home.
The biggest crisis of all that is beginning to worsen is the world’s economy. Since everything is momentarily shut down and paused for safety, barely any money is making it into the economy. Especially since most of the world is donating and helping other countries who are at greater risk. Egypt, on the other hand, is dealing with the virus quite strategically and has protected their economy with certain clever tactics.
Today, countries have been discussing strategies to put an end to the virus once and for all. Their first decision is to start easing the lockdown and quarantine restrictions to enable countries to start making more money.
Discussions that are being made are thinking of starting with Europe, which personally, I decide on otherwise. From what was learned so far, Europe is suffering the most throughout this novel pandemic. At the end of the day, nothing has been presumed final yet.
