Don’t compare your life to others. There’s no comparison between the Sun and the moon, they shine when it’s their time. #motivationalquotes
I found this random quote online and thought that i should share it on my gram. Growing up I was never that kid that likes to compare myself to others, cause everyone has different background, and it’s so hard to put measurement on people when everyone is different. However, that pressure was mostly put on me by my parents. They would say, “oh! Look at such and such, they did so great at this, and someone else was so good at that! And look at you! Why can’t you be like them!” I don’t mean to blame them on having high expectations on me, but all the comparison did get the best of me. For so many years, I tried because I simply just wanted to show them, look, I can do better than that person you compare me to. All I wanted was not to be better than that person, but to prove them wrong by doing better than that person, and to be honest, living a life trying that hard at things that I wasn’t even interested in or passionate about was really depressing. And the truth is, their expectations has no end, when you can do it, they will then have higher expectations for you to meet, its like an waterfall pouring on me endlessly.
Now that I’ve grown up and am completely independent from them. I started to look at things in different ways and realized all of those pressure and comparing was so meaningless, it made my life so miserable, and I’m sure my parents wasn’t having fun either. I wish one day they can understand that happiness is not when you do better than other people, but to be grateful of what you have and accomplish, there’s no easier way to find peace and happiness than finding it within yourself.
