Lovely logics #5: Don’t compare your life with others. You have no idea what their journey is about.
Confession: this is a concept that I struggle with. It was difficult for me to admit that. But you can’t escape reality. I look at others and what they have and wonder why I don’t have what they have. Light bulb moment…. It’s because I didn’t have the same struggle and didn’t take the same path they did to get it. Maybe it’s not meant for me to have. Either way, I don’t have it. If I wanted something its up to me to work hard to get it. If I’m not willing to work to get it, then I don’t need or want it. I am a true believer that things come in due time.
I was also reminded of the grass being greener on the other side. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t. But maybe you can be happy with your own and water your own grass. We only get as much as we put out. If you don’t water, or don’t put any effort how do you expect positive results?
There is no way to know what someone has been through just by looking at what they have. You may see someone happy his wife. But you don’t know what he had to deal with to keep her as his wife. You may see someone with a brand nee nice shiny car. Maybe they are struggling to make their payments every week. It’s all about how things are perceived. Just because you see someone with something, you can have it too you just have to work for it. It may not come in the same manner as that other person or when you want it.
