It’s hard for me to stop comparing myself to others, but I am learning. I used to always feel bad that I wasn’t as good as this person who had vastly more experience than I did. I knew that I would get better as the years roll on, but she will too, and she’ll always have more years than I ever will. It felt like I was running toward a moving finish line, and I was never going to win. But I realized that I can. I can if I stop competing, I can if I realize that this is my journey, and I am going to take it at a pace that is best for me.
So whenever I feel insecure, I always remind myself, “focus on your journey”. It doesn’t matter where everyone else is at, what matters is I keep taking the path that was intended for me. Some people will get to wherever they need to be at a faster pace than you will, but it’s ok, focus on your journey. Some people get a leg up because of certain privileges, it doesn’t matter, focus on your journey. What matters is your journey, and all the particularities and peculiarities that come along the way.
