Comparison is the Thief of Joy
We all deal with negative voices in our heads and comparison loves to attach itself to those voices. Theodore Roosevelt said that comparison is the thief of joy. By wanting things to be different than they are we get caught in the cycle of desire, and this cycle may actually prevent us from getting what we want. The key is to strike a balance between striving and desire.
