You are searching for happiness in life then you need to stop comparing yourself with others. Life is beautiful you know why because life is a collection of people with different uniqueness. You are the best of you, dont focus on the good side of people neglecting they have their flaw too. Read this story of a crow who focus on the uniqueness of others neglecting their flaw…. 

A Crow Lived in the Forest and was absolutely satisfied in life.But one day he saw a swan… This swan is so white and I am so black…crow thought.

 This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.He expressed his thoughts to the swan.“Actually,” the swan replied,“I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.”The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained,”I lived a very happy lifeuntil I saw a peacock.

I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him.After the people had left, The crow approached the Peacock..

Dear Peacock,You are so beautiful.Every day thousands of people come to see you.

When people see me,they immediately shoo me away. I  think you are the happiest bird on the planet. The peacock replied,I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet.

But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage.So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow,I could happily roam everywhere.


That’s our problem too. We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad.

We don’t value what has God given us.

This all leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness. Value the things god has given us, you are best of you no one can be like you.

Learn the secret of being happy and discard the comparison which leads only to unhappiness.

Stay happy always and God bless you.

  1. Very well said …
    People often feel lost and depressed because they think that happiness is a destination they need to reach in order to have the ultimate perfect life, but it’s not.
    Happiness is a journey, one that starts from within and has more intangible dimensions to it rather than tangible and materialistic
