I’ve been thinking about this quote a lot lately with the new semester starting soon. It’s easy to get down thinking about going back and realizing that you might not be the best at something. Maybe you didn’t travel the world, or have an amazing internship like some of your sisters. It’s easy to compare yourself and feel inferior.
I’m writing to you to tell you to stop doing that.
Everyone is constantly comparing themselves to others- even the person who seems to have it all. We gain nothing by comparing ourselves to others, except wasted time. President Theodore Roosevelt was correct when he said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
Comparison does not encourage excellence, but instead a defeatist attitude. Your sisters love you and you were invited to your sorority because they believed that you could bring something beneficial to the house. So, don’t use your time wishing you had the gift someone else is bringing to the house. Instead, cultivate your own gift. As Dr. Seuss said, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is more youer than you!”
