It’s amazing how different people are. People have different tastes, looks and style. People are fighting different battles, they have different personalities, different goals and they have different stories to tell. We were all created with so much attention to detail which means that everyone is unique.
“Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world…if you do so, you are insulting yourself.”
― Bill Gates
With that comes the importance of self discovery. We can have so many influences that it is easy to get lost in other people’s definitions of who we should be. Underneath all the inputs from all the people in your life, there needs to be a pure and unhindered journey of self discovery. What is it that you have come to believe about yourself ? Who are you?
“There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a person being themselves. Imagine going through your day being unapologetically you.”
― Steve Maraboli
With self discovery comes a realization of the futility of unhealthy competition. There’s no need to jealously compete with people around you, only a need to be the best at being yourself. Never trade your difference for conformity.
“There is no competition of sounds between a nightingale and a violin.”
― Dejan Stojanovic
