To understand uniqueness is to be free from expectations and comparisons.
When we continue to think of others and want them to think like us, we will not be able to be free from expectations and comparisons. We need to understand that each one has his own unique set of experiences. So, everyone has their own uniqueness of expression. That’s what makes the drama of life so beautiful.
The fact that we compare ourselves with others because we have never understood ourselves and are not aware of who we are and what we have. It is also because society has conditioned us from our birth to evaluate ourselves based upon others.
For a change… let us now start appreciating the uniqueness of everyone. Let us at least tell 2 people how special they are and what difference their life has made. This will help us not only appreciate them but also keep us free from any kind of expectations. Others, too, would be able to use their best qualities.
Understand, there is no scale to compare you with anybody. Each individual is unique.
Can you compare a lion and a horse?
Do we ever compare ourselves with flowers or birds or mountains?
Then why do we have to compare ourselves with other human beings? Just see nature :
The Flower Plants and The Fruit Trees grow in the same garden and prosper because they use all their energy for their own growth instead of using it to compare themselves with the other.
