Comparison is essential. It helps us choose the good against the bad, the best against the better. well, it looks alright but in this material world EVERYTHING that you use (brush, pen, book, house, mobile,…) or interact with compete for your time/money one way or the other and hence the need to compare (shall I buy this or that, shall I go with Tim for Bday party or with Jim for lunch).
However, we have been so habituated to comparision that we cannot stop ourself from comparing even when there is no need to do so. I for example found myself comparing who is the cutest of the two kids in the below video (which I liked a lot). Then I realised – Yes, comparison has truly become a disease and we need to be more conscious when start comparisons unnecessarily and stop it sooner than later.
