Each one of us is holding a different seed which will grow into a flower and if you give it important nutrition, your flower will bloom into your own personality.
Think about a flower garden, it is beautiful because of the different kinds of flowers in it, but if there’s only one kind, the garden will be dull. So there’s no need to compare, you’ll grow into your own flower.
