Video: I’m Addicted to Comparing Myself with Others

Chandika from Oregon says, “I’m addicted to comparing myself to other people. I can’t stop myself.”

Byron Katie helps her use her sister as an example. “’You’re comparing yourself to your sister’—is it true? Is that really you and your sister that you’re seeing, or is it images in your head? You’re comparing nothing with nothing—just images of the two of you. Any time you think you’re comparing yourself with anyone else, just ask yourself ‘Is it true?'”

“Just notice what happens when you think you’re comparing,” Katie says. “It’s all about noticing. When we’re just noticing, the mind is not at war with itself.”
