      when you compare yourself to other people, then you start to feel that you’re not enough/comparable to them.

      It is not a good idea to compare because often we are only perceiving the highlights of someone’s life. As such, you are usually not aware of their struggles, whereas you are fully hyper-aware of your own… so now you see how comparing can be misleading!
