of the #day:
"Everyone is unique and different. If we are like other people, then we are not expressing or own specialness." We're always comparing; from our very childhood we are taught comparison. Somebody else's child is more cute, more beautiful, more intelligent; somebody else's child is more obedient, and you are not.
All educational systems depend on comparison: somebody comes first, and somebody is the last in the class; somebody passes, somebody fails. Teachers appreciate students who are obedient; they hate students, they punish students who are not obedient in every way.
The whole structure of society is continuously comparing, and the very idea of comparison is absolutely false.
A plumber should be as respected as a great physicist. The plumber should be as respected and dignified as the professor. These are professions. You should not value the individual by profession; the individual is invaluable. Hierarchy would drop from society if no profession were bigger and greater and higher than other professions; thereafter, comparison would start disappearing.
Each individual is unique because there's nobody else like you. Comparison would have been right if all individuals were alike; they aren't. Even twins are not absolutely alike; it's impossible to find another person who is exactly like you. So, we're comparing unique people — which creates the whole trouble.
This whole system of hierarchy can be dissolved, and only then will inferiority complex dissolve. That's only a symptom.
Everybody feels inferior in some way or another. Somebody is more beautiful than you, somebody is healthier than you, somebody is more educated than you, somebody is in a higher post than you, and somebody has a more beautiful partner than you. Life is such a complex thing, and there are so many things in life that if you start comparing, nobody would be happy.
Stop comparing yourself to others and bask in the magnificent being that is you!
