The only person you can compare yourself to is – no one.Not even yourself.
Every pizza is different from the other.No matter how much you try,you cannot replicate the factors that went into making of that pizza you ate yesterday.It could vary from – a difference of a grain of salt to a slight more brown under the base,to the flirty mood of the chef to your swooning at the smell of some melted cheese.
Every slice of the same pizza is different from the other as well.Maybe one has more cheese coming off on one side or an extra pepperoni falling off the top or more oregano sitting in the center with chilli flakes randomly spread across.
Every bite you bite off that slice feels distinct too.It could be more soft and cheesy at one place with more rough and dry bread at the edge,with different veggies tossed all over it and one big chunk of meat sitting till the end to go last.
Then what keeps you going in life (apart from pizza)? If you can’t compare yourself to another on more or less the same level then what do you strive for? What do you try to achieve? Who do you try to become?
I think it’s the same thing as a pizza – a unique individual with an assortment of flavors, complementing with every other person around you to bring out the best and take away the worst,making the world a more beautiful place to live in.
You don’t compare.You just share.Because nothing in this world can be absolutely right or absolutely wrong.Nothing can be just the best or just the worst.It is what it is.You are because you are.No explanation.No evaluation.Just acceptance and acknowledgment.
