    especially when it comes to intelligence in school. After going through this facet, lately, I have been trying to change my thinking from “I wish I was as smart as them” to “I’m just how God made me, and I am smart in different ways so there’s no use in comparing myself to this person. They have their strengths and I have mine” and so far, just reminding myself of this every time I compare myself to someone has already started to make a difference in my thinking.
