You know what really get on my nerve, when we try to live up to others expectations of success. We see the finish product or the result of someone else's work and compare that to our own life. That is the ultimate torture. Don't compare someone else's results to work you have not yet done. Its not fair to yourself. We can be inspired, we can even admire others but the worse thing we can do is compare. You know why, it will ruin our starting point. We go in debt trying to keep up or look the part and we don't take in consideration where someone else started from. A lot of people don't share the starting portion of their life. Many people don't mind reliving their downfalls or beginnings if it means it will help someone else. This is typically because they are healed and are no longer are trying to prove their worth to anyone. Some people are still dealing with their past, so their is no way they can share it with you.
It is very easy to get caught up in what others want you to do or what others think is best for you. Sometimes without even knowing it over time we do things that is pleasing to the people around us and not for the creator of this world and our life. The worse we can do is worry about what others think of us. Instead of being concerned about what God wants us to do or of being concerned about what he has destined for us.
