Do not compare yourself to others. Unless of course…
…your outcome is to be vain and bitter and very unhappy
How do you know what someone else is thinking?
When we compare ourselves to others we hand our lives over to them.
If we stab someone in the back we are in effect saying – ‘I give you control of my life for these next few words and moments’.
How do we know what it is like to be someone else?
‘Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always’
We know from our work with The Prince’s Trust that many ‘celebrities’ and famous people suffer fear, worry and anxiety every day.
If you are going to compare yourself with anyone, compare yourself with you.
With my love and best wishes
