Ever heard of that saying, “comparison is the thief of joy”? Proverbs 14:30 (https://bit.ly/2GOZhuN) adds to this.
It is so important for us as growing, young people to be at peace with ourselves, with our journey, with our calling. This is not always easy, because it seems we’re always comparing. Sometimes unintentionally.
Comparing and envying another person’s journey is just so tiring, and does not benefit us in any way. Let’s aim to be happy for our neighbour when they succeed, and use that as encouragement and hope, instead of fuel for jealousy. Let’s celebrate each other and our wins – big or small.
