No Comparision



I had a friend who was always comparing himself to everybody else and all he saw was his shortcomings and failures that kept flashing in his eyes like a poison neon sign. Funny how he never compared himself to people who had it worse than him, people dying in hospitals, junkies on the street, dirty, desperate souls who can’t get by like you without some fix. Then there’s the old people having pain and suffering, missing a loved one, missing the good times, the old days, the days of wine and roses, the days of running, the days of dreams that were possible. Their golden years have turned into not so golden tears. Yeah, things could be better but they can always be worse; you think you got it bad? I told him “There’s millions who got it worse than you so shut up.”
