Compare to Others
Almost all of us compare ourselves to others to see how we measure up in terms of achievements and material goods. Comparing ourselves to others can lead to feelings of envy or superiority, either of which can harm our sense of self or our relationships with others. On the other hand, comparisons can have positive outcomes: they can inspire us to work harder and better ourselves, or to share our skills and help others achieve what they have. Given these complexities, it is worth examining the benefits and drawbacks of comparing ourselves to others
Comparing ourselves to others is the means by which we discover what we have and what we want. Where would we be as a society without a little competition to motivate us?
It isn’t wise to want what others have. You don’t always know what struggles they went through to get where they are. You also can’t know that what they have would benefit you in the same way.
Every person is different. If you keep comparing yourself to others, you will never learn how to value your unique talents. The key to success is accepting who you are.
Essay TaskWrite a unified, coherent essay in which you evaluate multiple perspectives on the topic of comparing to others in our lives. In your essay, be sure to:
• analyze and evaluate the perspectives given
• state and develop your own perspective on the issue
• explain the relationship between your perspective and those given
Your perspective may be in full agreement with any of the others, in partial agreement, or wholly different. Whatever the case, support your ideas with logical reasoning and detailed, persuasive examples.
