    Measure Yourself

    I will always know that I will never be the fastest, the strongest, the smartest, the biggest, the smallest, or any other extreme in life. I am rather middle of the road and I really think I don't mind being there. I am not jealous of anyone, there are those individuals who make...

    Rarely Ever.

    I do not compare myself to others.... usually. All it does is make me feel even worse about myself & my own situation & no good comes of it.   "Be who you are & say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." -- Dr. Seuss...

    Nice To See How Other People Live, But No Need To Be Like Them...

    I Am Who I Am

    No two people are alike. I compare myself not to others. I am me and they are they. We can have likeness but we all are unique in our own ways. I am thankful for who I am! I am thankful for what I am! I don't need to compare myself... God made me me and I am happy being me.

    Why are my parents constantly comparing me to

    my sister, other family members, or friends? It bothers me and they just call me sensitive but I have a right to be don't I? They're acting like they'd rather have them for a child. They don't get how hurtful that is to hear and if I'm sensitive because I feel bad about that...
