Today’s Quote: The Thief of Joy

Comparison is the thief of joy.

-Theodore Roosevelt

Everyday we compare. Whether it’s between two clothing brands, TV shows, or foods. I believe it’s human nature to always want what’s better. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. But, when we compare ourselves to other people, that’s when we start to worry that maybe we’re not good enough, and that we should change who we are. I’m not saying that every time you want hair like your favorite celebrity that you have low self esteem. But I know when I compare myself to someone else who has something I wish I had, especially when it is something I can’t do anything about, that’s when comparison becomes the thief of joy.
