Stop the unhealthy comparison games! Just be you! God gave us all unique talents and special gifts. Use them! Comparisons, when they get out of control, can lead to jealousies and synthetic outcomes of people trying to be something that they are not. Maximize what you have! Of course, life does not require reinventing the wheel for every task. We can learn so much from others, but we cannot be them. We can only be ourselves. Take from others those traits worthy of duplicating while placing your personal stamp on all that you do. Don’t become exhaustively and unreasonably consumed in someone else’s identity. They are them; you are you! Concentrate on you. Who knows what that focalized attention and concentration will produce! Wandering eyes can be dangerous! You can easily lose focus, energy, and time when you are too busy watching and comparing yourself to others. Look in the mirror at yourself; improve, enhance, and maximize your potential. Just be you!
Yes, that’s right! I’m throwing in the towel. I quit. I’m done! I cannot take it anymore! I am so tired of other people’s problems (OPP) and their foolishness. I am tired of being on their defense team listening to their problems – one after another. Oh, I forgot to tell you this! Other folks problems can stress you out and “wear you thin” if you let them. Shiny gray hairs become prolific on your head; not theirs! You can become so engulfed with OPP’s that you become sidetracked with your own. Before you realize it, your issues have been put on the back burner. I’ve had enough! I want to limit my time and energies toward engagement for me and my loved ones. So as I wipe the sweat off my face, I am tossing that white grimy towel with the velocity of a 20 mph javelin throw. Watch it fly through the air like a towel trapeze! I’m taking a mental health break from them to concentrate on me and mine!
