It is difficult to not compare yourself to someone you know so well and spend so much time with, it is mostly harmless, but it can become harmful if you dwell on it for too long. Spending most of your life striving to be like someone else is tiering and useless, there is only one of every person on the earth, you can 't better yourself with the mindset
Thus, most people attempt to perpetuate that closeness by creating said similarities. A sense of "we-ness" coerces people to care more for their peers ' wellbeing (Irwin 1077). Feelings of belonging stem from that caring nature. While this isn’t inherently destructive, those feelings can be fake. Frequently, other kids recognize that a certain member of the group wants to fit in and therefore are easily able to coerce that individual into doing something he or she normally would not do, which is the definition of peer pressure (Juzwiak 4).
Stoicism and Christianity It can be said that there is consistency between Stoicism and Christianity as they both have the same kind of understanding of God. Both are monotheistic, meaning they believe that there is one absolute, all-powerful being. However, the views of Stoicism and Christianity are by no means identical. Christian monotheistic view of God, according to the New Testament, is that God is immaterial, meaning that he is a spiritual Being. The stoics, however, have a different idea of God.
In this few scenario, it can reflect that society nowadays was not as easy as what we think about. Even your appearance and the physical surface, there also will happened a discrimination. However, when you try to perceive yourself in a positive way, hold your true personality, treat other better at least do not harm other and hold your major goals of your life, there will not form an obstacle to block your way toward success.

When we lead ourselves to believe our illusions, we can find ourselves trapped in an unrealistic perception of life. These illusions are attempts to distract ourselves from the reality that we are not satisfied with life. When these illusions turn out to be false, we often attack those who revealed the illusion to us. This is perhaps to hide our anguish, and feelings of inadequacy. These illusions are almost always damaging to us; however, to view life in a realist perspective is often too hard.
As mentioned earlier, when considering how depression gives reason for people to victimize themselves, Yapko agrees with “[Victimized people] don't know how to set and keep clear boundaries about each other's emotions or how to deal with each other in respectful ways when the going gets tough” (92). This creates an unhealthy and unbalanced foundation for a relationship between two
Tragedy of Comparison The claim is made that to know oneself you have to try and understand others. Moreover, many individuals in today's society compare themselves to everyone around them, striving to be like another person. As can be expected, this is common with those who are knowledgeable on literature. When reading and analyzing texts it is and can be a difficult task comparing the morality of a character's opinions and actions. The clashing fictional characters Creon and Antigone from the tragedy Antigone and George from Of Mice and Men all have their flaws but it goes without saying that one is morally superior.

Does the world around us force one to form opinions about others that may be unjust and harmful? The danger of stereotyping many times leads to individuals falling prey to believing that they may fit in a certain category or group thus forcing the individual to acclimate to negative stereotyping. “The stereotype hanging over the individual then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. He begins to see himself no longer as an individual and clings to the negative aspects of the group in which society has categorized him” (Duczeminski). By society not adapting to a disabled person and their exceptionality, it causes the disabled individual to succumb to said stereotypes.
Margaret Mead states, “But while we often rejoice in the success of people far removed from ourselves-people who work in another profession, live in another community, or are endowed with a talent that we do not especially want for ourselves-we tend to regard the success of people close at hand, within our own small group, as a threat." I cannot agree with this more, honestly. I think people tend to look at the people around them who are successful as a threat becasue they know they can be compared to them. For instance, a girl in high school who is extremely pretty will threaten all the other girls. That is simply becasue the other girls will feel like they will be compared to the really pretty girl.
