Find your worth

You don't have to look very far.

Judging our own worth against someone else's is usually pointless. "Comparisons are odorous," Shakespeare says. There always seems to be someone smarter, wittier, better looking, happier, more successful or popular. This is fertile ground for feelings of inadequacy and jealousy to grow in.

The way to avoid the trap of comparisons is to find your individuality as the image, or expression, of God. In fact, God couldn't get along without any one of us, any more than music could do without a particular note or mathematics without some number.
