Why should I not compare myself with others?

Ask Bhante – Questions & AnswersCategory: instructionWhy should I not compare myself with others?
Pittsburgh Buddhist Center Staff asked 10 years ago

Dear Bhante, I feel like I failed myself… Im not good at meditation. In school, I did not study a cool subject. Now, im a mother who could not exclusively breast feed and my son is not up high in the growth charts like some of my friends’ kids. My problem is that I compare myself to others… And at times i dont compare, somebody compares around me, so i get easily pulled back to my samsara. I want you to give me good buddhist logic why i should not compare and contrast. With metta, fati
