Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today.
In the past, we learned to cope with challenges ourselves. Today, a lot of people younger than me are not resistant to the vicissitudes and emotional challenges of life. If you’ve been told all your life that it’s the others who should spoil you and keep you free of problems, you’re probably a very sober person emotionally.
I’m not where I want to be, but I’m proud I’m not where I used to be.
If you ever find yourself cringing at something you did in the past, it means you have grown as a person.
