“I kept reminding myself that 'comparison is the thief of joy.' But somehow...when you're in a state of self pity, you choose to dwell in self destruction because there's some weird comfort in feeling bad for yourself. It's definitely not good. But the reality is, it happens, and it's ok to be in this state. But for only a moment...so that you have time to REALIZE what you're doing and quickly GET OUT OF IT.”
