"Comparison is the thief of joy" according to Theodore Roosevelt, and I couldn’t agree more with him. I always considered it a useless practice.
Do you remember getting upset if your parents or teachers compared you to your siblings, cousins or classmates? Did you feel attacked in any way?
The comparison was put forth, more than likely to see if ...
You would walk straight
get better grades
be more compliant
do your chores without much protesting
Do you remember the unpleasant feelings that such comparison elicited in you?
Well, now that you're an adult, preparing for your big day, it's up to you to stop doing this to yourself.
Celebrate being different.
You are unique.
It will be a beautiful day.
There is no one like you. There is no one like him. I promise you that.“
