A big lesson that many of us have to learn is that we cannot keep comparing ourselves to other people. If we were all exactly the same, then we could compare. Since each of us is unique, comparison does not work.
In fact, the Angels say, that when we start comparing ourselves to others, we are really reacting to a mirror of a part of ourselves that we have not yet dealt with, and that we need to put to rest. That is a huge idea!
In comparing to others, we are pulling out the parts of us that need to be worked on. Whether it is physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual work, when a comparison pops up, now is the time to do the work.
