Why so damn anxious? 
Think you're a big fat failure? 
Not giving enough? 

You feel left behind? 
Useless with a flabby mind? 
And no direction?

If you can... relax.
Things happen when they happen:
To each a season. 

Don't seek approval:
Our only judge and jury
Is simply ourself.

On the road of life 
We don't race anyone else:
Move to your own beat.

    1. Me too: sometimes it requires real effort to not compare, which can feel near-impossible if we’re feeling anxious/tired.
      The rational mind all too often takes a back seat, sadly. 😦


  1. It’s so easy to make comparisons between yourself and others. That’s helped along by how many people are willing to compare you to others, too. I think, though, that we’re happier to the extent we can root out the practice.

    1. I think you’re right: I think such comparisons seem to belong to a desire to ‘compete’ that may, perhaps, be a little juvenile (for want of a better word!) in such circumstances (unlike, say, wanting to compete in an environment like sport).
