Comparison is the killer
It's easy to read someone else's accolades and think
Damn, I'm lame.
What the fuck have I done with my life?
But that's criminal right? To see someone else's achievements and wander why your own seem so meager?
Maybe you haven't failed, maybe you are still growing. Maybe your path isn't one that's meant to be glorious and impressive. Maybe you were meant to be humble and meek and geek out on things like heirloom seed purity and philosophy, which aren't sexy topics on a resume. Maybe you've been put here for simpler things, like cooking wholesome meals, spending time with family and dreaming about publishing a sci-fi novel one day.
