About comparison and what matters
I notice thoughts comparing myself with others… Of course they are much fitter, better, faster, clearer etcetera, etcetera. In the end not all is what it seems but that is how my thougts work and yours probably as well! It’s difficult to coop with sometimes, isn’t it?
Imagine you feel powerless, depressed, confused and you don’t even know how you’re going to get through the next minute. Believe me, I know all about it! What you can do, for example, is walk from your bed to the tap and drink a glass of water, even if that is all you do! If that does not work then you just keep breathing. It does not work for you? Uhhh, you are still there, aren’t you? Something to think about…
It will be different for everyone, but the point of the story is that you have to find out what works for you! And if you don’t know, then just keep walking (or doing what you love) and the solutions will reveal themselves!
Today I suddenly had an enormous admiration for my fellow walkers, in all respect it is wonderful when someone does such a thing, but I especially find it special how have such persistence. I see their footsteps in an endless line in front of me on the beach and without them even realizing it, it helped me a lot!
I set mini goals all day long and it it turns out that they are also too big then I adjust them. Who cares if I rest 12 times in two hours? Or what difference does it make at what time I arrive? Who cares if I say to myself that my next break is after 5km but after saying that I already want to sit down and I do! What does it matter? If you start to think about your own way of doing things, you will soon find that you are very strict about yourself. But not you? Of course you aren’t… Why is everything always going so well with you, uh? Yes, this was cynical, but true, or not? What does it matter.
In the end I’m not comparing myself with others. At least I try not to. Or I’m aware of it and I accept the feelings and emotions. I am who I am. That matters 😉
