Mirror, mirror on the wall!
The well known question from the evil stepmother of Cinderella. She wanted to be the fairest of them all and the mirror always told her that she was, until one day. Cinderella had grown up and she became the fairest of them all.
But comparing does not only happen in fairytales. It happens also in real life. Like ours! In fact when we were born, our parents already compares us with other babies. Although they say that in their eyes, we are the most beautiful baby in the world. But they just can't help it. Many times they ask questions to compare like:
-Does your baby sleeps whole night or not.
- What kind of milk the baby gets. Expensive or cheap?
- Who learn to crab or go first
- Who learn to talk first
- Who has the nicest clothes
And then we grow up, and our parents do everything to help us so we can be the best. And then more comparisons
- Whos the prettiest?
- Whos the most clever
- Who goes to private or public school
- Who recieve more honors and medals
And then comes the adolescence age. Here it is not only the parents that compares. Now we too compare and compete with each other. We want to be the best, we want to be the person that everybody likes, we want to be the best dressed, the most popular and so on.
Then we get matured, but still competing and comparing.
-Who has the best job
- who has the best furnitures at home
- who has the nicest or biggest house
- who has the most expensive car
- who has more money
- who has been to many different places
- who has acquired more
But we can't help it. We want to be the best. But God said that:
