It’s an excuse that, if you repeat it enough times, it starts to sound like the truth. However, it couldn’t be farther away from reality. There is always going to be someone better than you. That’s how the world works. But if you apply yourself, and if you try, then you’re going to get somewhere – one step ahead, if not the top of the ladder. Here’s an idea: let’s not aim for the best. Instead, let’s aim for one step forward. Because the best will always, always seem too far away but the next step is only one step away and it’s much more attainable. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, it’s important we step forward. It’s Comfortable And Hard To Break
Self-pity can often feel like wrapping yourself up in a nice, cozy blanket. This is because trying to change your life is scary, and difficult. Change is terrifying, even when it’s good. That fear is part of what makes it so difficult to become better people. As a result, the habit of self-pity gets harder to break. It becomes a routine, a comfortable one. However, if you want to break out of this routine, you can. All it takes is just a little bit of effort and trying to figure out why you would do so much better in life without this indulgent and self-absorbed emotion.
