Do you often find that you’re comparing yourself to others? Perhaps to a family member, a close friend, or someone famous on social media? If the answer is yes, then welcome to the club. The sad truth is that it’s the reality for too many of us.
Why do nobody ever accept their situations in life? When you listen to your friend who’s dating/married a guy about how complicated and annoying he is, you start thinking about your life and always saying, “Why can’t I find someone, yet? I want to find my own significant other. I want to settle in as she settles in.”
What’s even funnier, the fact is while you’re listening to their problems, your friend is thinking how amazing single life is and how you don’t worry about these kind of problems.
Social comparison starts at a very early age. Children discover very quickly that not everyone lives the same life or has the same opportunity as them. They see how some friends have more toys or better clothes, or live in nicer houses. As these children grow older and become teenagers, the comparing doesn’t stop. It often intensifies and turns into negative self-talk. Thoughts like “I’m not good enough,” “I can’t do anything right,” or “I’ll never make it” slowly start creeping into their minds. This kind of gloomy thinking causes them to develop anxiety and depression-like impulses, which may continue well into their adulthood years
It’s really sick that people actually think each person is living a better life than their own, seriously, people go through so much but they just don’t speak about it.
Why don’t we just appreciate what we have for once and stop looking at other people’s lives and instead, focus on our own life?
Comparison actually is what actually takes away happiness. You can never feel happy when you always feel like there’s something that you don’t have, that you lack something. Comparing yourself to others only makes your life difficult and brings you misery and pain. Instead, try using others as motivation to work harder and do better.
Comparison will actually sabotage your progress. It’ll drain your energy and happiness and instead of actually getting worked done, you’ll stay hours complaining about other people’s achievements. If you spend your days comparing yourself to other people’s achievements, you’ll never get anything accomplished. You must invest all your energy into pursuing your own dreams and goals. Don’t waste your precious time for something that’ll do you nothing but drain you.
You can’t physically change who you are. You are you. So, complaining about not having the perfect body or not having the perfect clear skin won’t do you any good. You’ll always be you. You’ll never be anyone else. And although it might be hard to believe for some of us, this is actually a good thing. As Jen Sincero says:
There will never be anyone exactly like you. You were given special gifts and talents to share with the world, and even though everybody has special gifts and talents, nobody will use theirs quite the same way you do. — Jen Sincero
No one has a perfect life. Although you might think that a lot of people are leading an amazing life with no down sides, know that this isn’t true. People are pretty good actors. You may see an Instagram picture of a couple looking so in love while in fact, they don’t speak to each other, they don’t even communicate. People like showing off that they’re living the best days of their lives while in fact, they’re the saddest people you could actually know. Don’t ever judge someone by how much followers, likes, comments or pictures they have. Judge them by what they actually have in their life. Every single person on this Earth experiences problems and challenges throughout their lives. No one is exempt from this. Some people are just better at keeping it together, at least on the outside. So next time you compare yourself to your friend or neighbor, remember that you probably do not know every detail about their life.
There will always be someone better than you in something. And you will always always be better than someone in something. It’s life. We complete one another. So the sooner you accept it, the happier you’ll be. Someone getting a better grade than you in a subject isn’t the end of the world; you’re doing your best and you’ll definitely do better than them in another subject. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. There will always be someone better than you at one point in your life. At some point in your life, someone will beat you to whatever it is you’re after. You can’t always win at everything in life. All you have to do is work hard and try your best, and whatever is meant to be will fall into place for you at the right moment. Just try your hardest, you can do it!
Start appreciating your life and everything you have because some people actually wish for half as much as you have!
Saudi Arabia Sold Out All Masks Due to Coronavirus
It is no news now that the Coronavirus ( COVID – 19) is on the rise globally and is widely spreading at an alarming rate. Sadly enough, it’s beginning to reach the Arab world and is now considered a major threat, as Arab officials are trying to limit and contain the spread of the virus.
In Saudi Arabia, pharmacies have been struggling to meet the demands on face masks, as more and more people are buying them to protect themselves from the disease. The face masks stocks have been decreasing in a rapid way across the country , with some pharmacies even limiting the amount of face masks sold to people to 5 boxes each, as a way to keep their stock and give it to other people who are in need of them as well.
Although the Saudi ministry of health stated that there are no cases of corona reported. People are buying face masks in huge quantities and hoarding as much as they can, fearing that soon they would disappear from pharmacies; which is apparently happening , due to the large demand on them especially because of the Hajj and Umrah season, where the kingdom is filled with people from all around the globe; As people will be in close contact to one another and going to crowded areas ,which increases the risk of someone catching the virus and threatens the well- being of the country since the disease can spread easily.
The ministry of health also stated that there are various measures that are taken continuously in order to ensure that there are no cases of the virus in the kingdom, with them checking on every individual that is coming from a country that had an outbreak, and thoroughly taking the right actions to limit the amount of people who enter the kingdom whether it is for Hajj, Umrah or other reasons.
KSA Gifts Egypt With A Piece of the Kaaba
Great news has hit Egypt yesterday evening. The Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Egypt has handed a beautiful piece of the Kaaba Kiswah to the Egyptian tourism minister as a present that is yet to be added in as a part of display in the new museum that will open pretty soon.
The Kiswah means it is something we use to cover an item, which in this case, is the Kaaba. Which is why we are extremely proud to have a unique addition to our new museum. Osama Al-Nugali, the Saudi Ambassador stated that granting a piece of the Kiswah is a delightful way to contribute in enhancing the historical relations as well as foster religious ties between both countries.
Since Egypt has been developing and restoring various archaeological areas as well as establishing museums throughout Egypt, Nugali believes that this is a well deserved present for their efforts hence praising them and their hard work.
So far, what we know for a fact is that the New Administrative Capital museum consists of two floors and is located on a land of 8500 square meters. Also, it consists of a main exhibition hall that includes sub galleries as well.
“The Museum of Antiquities in the City of Arts and Culture will feature a thousand artifacts that tell the history of Egypt through different historical eras. Its entrance is decorated with two Egyptian obelisks, which were brought from the eastern San Hajar area in Sharqiya. It will also house the newly discovered Toto cemetery, which was recently dismantled and relocated from Sohag to the Administrative Capital Museum,” Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri revealed in August.
We are proud to add that the New Administrative Capital’s City of Arts and Culture will include an Opera House built on a land of 86,000 square meters. It is said that the number of individuals that can be accommodated in the new Opera Theater are up to 2,200 people. Pretty cool!
Also, other additions to the city are various buildings for Cinema, Music, and Sculpture as well as a wide range of restaurants and services that could be granted for the beloved visitors. It is obvious that all the time and money invested in this project is worthwhile and well spent.
“The establishment of the City of Arts and Culture in the New Administrative Capital came at the request of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, where the establishment of the city started more than a year ago. Fifteen thousand workers participated in the construction operations. The timetable for the establishment of the city was 7 years, and it was pressed to 2 years as directed by the president,” said Walid Samy, the general manager of Almasa Group.
After filling you in on all the details, you yourself will find that we as a country do deserve the Kaaba’s Kiswah as a present of victory for all the accomplishments that Egypt has been achieving.
The Kingdom Ranked Among Top 10 in UN’s E-commerce Index
Saudi Arabia has been ranked among the top 10 countries in the e-commerce sector, according to the UN e-commerce index.
The index which is issued by the UN Conference on Trade and Development, has placed the Kingdom in the 49th spot in the global ranking index.
According to the report, the Kingdom has reached an impressive improvement and that’s because of two main factors, the proportion of Internet use, which has risen to 93 percent, and the rising postal reliability standard.
Saudi Minister of Communications and Information Technology Abdullah bin Amer Al-Sawaha, stated that the improvement is because of the countless support coming for the Saudi leadership.
He also added that the ministry is working relentlessly in order to develop the digital capabilities of the Kingdom and invest in future projects that help achieve the goals of Vision 2030.
