1 Happiness Zapper you need to stop is : Comparing Yourself to Others!
When we compare ourselves to others, we often end up feeling inadequate, or not “good enough.”
The truth is, we are all different! We are all so unique and we all have positives and negatives in our lives.
Some people have more money, some people are more attractive, etc.
We need to find what makes us Happy Muslims in our hearts and stop comparing ourselves to other people.
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “When one of you sees another who is superior to him in point of wealth and creation, let him look to him who is below him. That is more proper that you hold not in contempt the favor of God towards you” (recorded in Bukhari and Muslim).
Dr. Brene Brown states in her famous book, The Gifts of Imperfection:
“What we bring to the world is completely original and cannot be compared.”
Let’s stop comparing ourselves to others and start being thankful for who we are and what we have.
