" Don't compare yourself with anyone in this world, if you do so you are insulting yourself " ~ Bill Gates.
When comparing yourself with others in a place full of depression, it's a bit late to sit down with a piece of paper to work out how you can get hope back into your life. When blinded by moods of unfair comparisons, anything you focus on during that mood will feel like a mountain on top of a list of don't know's. So don't insult yourself by ignoring your brains need to rest because this is what is happening to you when your mind is filled with comparisons. Stop what you are doing and sit right down, exactly where you are, and sing
"what about me, it isn't fair, I've had enough now I want my share, can't you see, I wanna live, but you just take more than you give"
because your brain is taking more than your body can give and its causing both mental and physical stress. Cry out injustice if you need to because its reasonable to feel wronged, then when the crying has subsided, feel the tiredness in your bones and smile. Smile for the tiredness in your bones because this is a gift from God that you do not need to insult yourself any more. Bill Gates might have a lot of money in the bank, but its because he is human too, that he understands who you are. He may be able to hide in ivory towers, but its because he is brains and bones, just like you, that he can share with you what he said to himself to get over a sense of not being recognised for who he wanted to be. Is Bill truly himself right now? Are you? Why not ask yourself the question right now "who are you?" then listen without thought to the answer given. Once you hear yourself breathing you will know. You are life itself and its telling you to get off the tread mill. Bill Gates believed in his ideas so much that he used those words to push him through the pain of rejection. Sleep now and when you wake, push through your sense of rejection by taking some well deserved time out to "smell the roses" If you can't afford to, just smile.
