Comparison will get you no where.
We are all different.
Comparison will only rob you of your own happiness.
Rather than focusing on the good in other people’s lives, stop dwelling on the negatives in your own.
While life will always have its ups and downs, those negatives will seem far less superior if you begin to maximize the positives.
“Buddha taught us how all happiness and suffering depend upon the mind. He taught us how to abandon those states of mind that cause suffering and cultivate those states of mind that cause happiness. In other words, he taught us perfect methods for overcoming suffering and attaining happiness. No one else taught us these methods. How kind Buddha is!”—Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - “The New Meditation Handbook”
And I was Surprised
I don’t know if I should be telling this, but I am freaking emotional right now and I am almost in the verge of my tears. Or no, I am already crying. It has been a pretty long tiring day for all of us, and I never expected anything after it, but after I opened my blog and read all the posts and the messages and tags and everything, my heart popped up. I feel both blessed and thankful at the same time. All those kind words, and gratitude. You know guys, you should not be thanking me for anything because I just did what I ought to did. Instead, I should be the one thanking all of you. I am tired and crying right now but I am really really really happy right now. It had been a long time since I had a good cry out of something good. Okay, I am always the cry baby at these kinds of things. Again, thank you very much. Thank you.
