When I was younger I would compare myself with others all the time.

I don’t know when this practice began and I don’t know exactly when it ended… However I was still doing this long after high-school.

I remember not wanting to attend a high-school reunion because I felt shame for not believing that I had achieved enough.

Growing up is a difficult process and I am happy to report that for me this goal has been achieved.

This comparison rarely accomplished anything positive. If I came out on top which did happen occasionally, I felt bad for those who didn’t. If I didn’t then I was left with that.

Somewhere along the way I just figured out that I didn’t have to be at the top or the bottom… That Somewhere in the middle with the masses was just fine.
