We often hear the advice that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others. While this is generally helpful for a peaceful mind it’s absolutely useful advice in the moment because in fact it makes us want to compare even more or feel guilty about it, both of which is not healthy at all. That’s why the helpful alternative is so useful: we should have the helpful alternatives up our sleeves so when we catch ourselves comparing, we can take this more constructive route.
