A lot of our unhappiness comes from comparing our life with others’. However, we don’t know what challenges someone else is going through unless we’re walking in their shoes. We all have our own unique path. And each of our paths will have some trails and tribulations. So, before comparing your life with someone else’s and looking down on your own, remember that you don’t know the full picture of someone’s life unless you’re actually living it yourself. Not only that, the act of comparing prevents you from being able to recognize the good things you already have, diminishing your overall happiness. This quote, by Marquis de Condorcet, is about enjoying our own life. Moreover, it’s about not making how much we can enjoy our life dependent on how our life compares with others.
