Hello there, lovely individual.
I have a very simple suggestion for you today. A simple but not easy prescription for emotional pain.
STOP BLOODY COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHER PEOPLE
There is nothing good about comparing yourself to others and then beating yourself over the head with everything you AREN’T, compared to them.
You’re NOT them. You’re you. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
Everyone has an entirely different set of variables. You need to work within your variables and decide who you want to be and what you want to do from there.
I so easily look at others my age and stand in awe (for maybe five seconds) at how much they’ve accomplished. And then I promptly beat myself up for not measuring up.
This doesn’t help me in any way. It doesn’t motivate, it tears down.
So stop it. And I will work on the same. 😉
