There is no BUT in love. If you love me, do not compare me to others. Even if you do not love me, DON’T compare me to others.
It is better to be with someone who appreciates everything about you, who loves you for who you are, who celebrates your flaws, who makes you laugh, who brings out the best in you, who is comfortable spending time with you, who is always there for you, than to be with someone who is ALWAYS comparing you to someone else.
When someone compares you to someone else, it means you are not good enough for them. Do not let people’s opinions control your life. Because you are living your life for yourself, not for people. When people say, “You are not good enough for them, it means they are not good enough for you.” You should let them go. Because you do not need draggers in your life. You need lifters to help you get to the next level. It is better to be free with one great person than to be lonely in company of many people.
Mario Andretti said, “If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.” So what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for the right time to start? If you are waiting for the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone, stop waiting. The train is living your station. You must do whatever it takes to catch your train. Run!
Stop getting ready. Paul Klee said, “A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.” Is it really possible? Of course, it is possible. It can be done. But you must start. And you must start today. Don’t fear. Don’t doubt yourself. The most important thing is to believe in yourself. Stop waiting for the right time to make yourself bigger, smarter. Start now.
Stop waiting for the right time to go crazy. Because everything is changing. Success doesn’t come from waiting for the right time to change your life. It comes from getting your hands really dirty. It comes from actually doing the work.
You must do the work. You must face your reality. You must embrace change. You must do what you are afraid of doing. You must be comfortable taking risks. There is no perfect time to make mistakes. Start today. You can start today by changing how you do your things, how you make your decisions. Because you cannot change your life without changing your thoughts.
And if you really want to change yourself, you must stop thinking about the past. Remember that you are no longer living in the past. You are living in the moment. This moment needs you. If you are not present with yourself, how can you change your life?
