3.You embrace your individuality
When you compare your life to someone else’s you are setting up an unfair playing field from the start. Because no two people are exactly alike with exactly the same life experiences, Pfeffer says, it is virtually impossible to make a fair comparison between your life and someone else’s. Embrace the uniqueness of what makes you who you are.
4.You gain self-acceptance
When you let go of caring about others’ lives and their accomplishments and comparing yourself to them, you give yourself an enormous gift: the freedom to be you.
“This leads to increased self-acceptance which then boosts your self-esteem, confidence, and self-worth because you allow yourself to succeed at what you are good at,” she says. “It also allows you to be authentic, which is the ‘magic ingredient’ most people are attracted to anyway.”
