Comparison

Today an email from Submissive Guide popped into my inbox that really resonated with me. It was about the strive for perfection and comparing yourself to others. This is something I struggle with on a daily basis, I see others tweet & blog their achievements and feel that mine are not as good. I forget that their life, their journey, is different, that their fears and struggles will be different to mine, that there will be things that I can do that they can't and vice-versa, that basically, we're all just different.

I try, I try my best, and that is what matters. Deep down I think I know that, but a past history of being told I'm not X, Y and Z enough has affected my ability to believe when people tell me that trying my hardest is all they ask. So I need to be kinder to myself; to repeat to myself that as long as I am trying my best that is all that can be asked of me. Eventually that will sink in, I hope, and I wont find myself looking at other subs and feeling negative about myself.
