This talk focuses on the benefits and consequences of comparing ourselves to others, an action that for many of us happens naturally, unwittingly, and automatically. As a result, such action indirectly of directly shapes our attitudes and behaviors. According to Hinduja, while comparing ourselves to others can bring benefits, it can also set unhealthy boundaries in our lives that hedges us in and keeps us from living life to the fullest.
