It really is a danger to compare your life to those of theirs - if for no other reason that you cannot know what their life is really like. And yet how do you stop yourself? I've seen friends and acquaintances do and achieve so much in the past 12 months and I am overjoyed for them. Yet a part of me also mourns due to my own lack of progress. It makes you wonder what you're doing wrong, why you can't seem to get your crap together to do what you want. It is frustrating, disappointing, and makes me doubt myself.
So it is a case of knowing what it is, what it shouldn't be and that I need to stop and yet struggling to put it into action.
