Do you find you often compare yourself with others? It’s the resulting feeling that you’re not good enough or that they’re not as good as you, and all the self flagellation and self congratulation that goes with it, that keeps the whole dream of a separate ‘me’ alive. This isn’t now about rejecting those thoughts when they come; that’s only more rejection. But what if they don’t mean anything? What if they’re the dying embers of an old fire that, when no longer fed, burns through to ashes? Then you can celebrate your character just as it is, with all its ‘talents’ and ‘flaws’, its quirks and eccentricities; celebrate your personal, never to be repeated, unparalleled uniqueness.
