Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
Luckily this is one life lesson that I don’t even have to think about. One thing that irritates me beyond measure is when someone is constantly comparing themselves/their lives to other peoples’.
It’s infuriating. Especially where the comparisons were being made about me, it made me feel inferior, insecure, useless and small. And angry. Angry because all I could think as things were said was ‘Great, good for them, that’s clearly how they work. That’s brilliant, it would kill me, I’d hate it.’ I’m not anyone else. I have different dreams, hopes, fears and aspirations to everyone else. My idea of bliss and happiness might be someone else’s idea of hell.
There is no point comparing yourself to other people. You are not them. I am not you. We are all different. We’ll all find our own way and together we make the world what it is. Beautiful and varied.
