you are special, just like everyone else

Regarding the last post: being better without being better than.

An implication of the Baal Shem Tov's words teaches us that feeling better than other irreligious people because you are religious actually taints your religiousness.

If you believe yourself to be better than a non-religious person, you are fundamentally damaging that very religiousness of yours which you prize so much. The only proper outlook for a religious person is to recognize that you are no better than those less religious than yourself, or even those who aren't religious at all.
