The thief of joy


We love to compare ourselves.

Actually, we hate it.

Or love/hate, maybe.

But we do it—day in and day out.

We compare the way we live our lives, our decisions, how we raise our kids, spend our money, what our marriages look like, what we do for fun.

We judge, and we are judged. Even if not deliberately.

But we forget, or maybe never even consider, that we all have a unique set of values.

That inner voice that tells us what’s most important to us.
