I have noticed a pattern in that I watch others from afar doing ‘things’ or having ‘things’ which make me feel a pang of jealousy or like my life is not enough.
And then I have to remind myself that even if I could have everything that I am watching others enjoy on the sidelines… I wouldn’t want it anyway. I KNOW that those things don’t make me happy!
I think it is because others are enjoying those things I feel I SHOULD too… that I am weird and an outcast in some way.
But we are all different and that is the beauty of life. But we need to remind ourselves of this and that it is OK not to want what everyone else does.
This does not make you strange, it makes you YOU and what is better than that?
