Y'know, they say one of the worst things you can do as an artist is try to compare other people's work to your own. I have a hard time avoiding that, especially when I've got friends that are more talented than I am. Plus, how am I supposed to work out how to improve my work if I can't take a look and see what makes other people's work great?

Maybe you need someone whose work looks worse than yours to compare to?

I compare my writing to other people's all the time. If it's worst then mine, I feel bad for going "hey mine is better!" and if it's better "oh im a terrible writer. i am the worst writer ever."

Like you said though, you have to look at other people's work to figure out how to get better though, so you can't win.
