On today’s episode of Funke Inspires, Funke Akindele-Bello enlightened her fans about the dangers of comparison. According to her, she said;
Comparison is the ‘stealer of joy’, it’s evil, it will destroy you. I used to compare myself with people in the movie industry back in the day. But then I realized people’s destinies differ. Never compare yourself with people, you are your own person, you have your own mission on earth, always think about how to move forward. Your journey is different from theirs. Comparison will only make you bitter and your heart filled with jealousy. If you want to make any comparison at all, Make comparisons of your past and present!. It’s called a journey and not a competition, Focus on your journey and strengths and how to be a better person. Trust me you’ll end up being successful. Comparison is the death of well-being and peace of mind.
She’s absolutely right, you know…
When we compare ourselves – be it achievements or lifestyle, the end result is usually devastating which can have several negative effects on the mind and even the body as a whole. Hence, stay true to yourself and always do you no matter the condition you may find yourself; the advantages of being you out-weighs the disadvantages.
