You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful - or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.

Comparison is an act of violence against the self.
People who “care about you” should never make themselves out to be better than you, or bring you down. Friends, lovers, and family members should all want to see you at your best and help you get to your best. Negative attitudes are a waste of a time and energy and I don’t have time to deal with that anymore.
