Thankfully, Roosevelt isn’t the only Theodore that keeps reminding me that “comparison is the theft of joy”. It’s a quote that i should keep as a mantra for my whole life.
I’ve eventually concluded that i’m not the only one that keep comparing myself with others. I guess it’s something we all do, that keeps getting us down. There’s always a day or two within the month that i feel like a total looser, and for people who are as hard with themselves as i am, these are some seriously tough days to get through.
What my own Theodore reminds me all the time, is how different we all are. From the place we live, our mindsets, styles, what we do. For some success comes easy, and some have to work just a tad harder. Whatever you’re sweating for though, will come eventually as long as you want it real bad.
I won’t hide that i’m still figuring myself when it comes to comparison. Other times it lights up the passion in me, sets my eyes on keep getting better. Other times though, it completely breaks me down. At the end of the day though i realise that there shouldn’t even be a comparison. All the great things in our world happened just because of our uniqueness and by people who weren’t afraid to stay true to themselves.
