Lucky ‘You’!

“Comparison is the coincidental curse of civilization”.


There are days when as you walk down the street, everyone you come across looks more happy, fit, smart or successful than you.

It is because you pretty well know your mask…and also what it is masking. Deep down inside, you are aware of all your fallings and failings. Your vulnerabilities and shortcomings are disclosed to you in their entirety. You know what weighs on your mind, what bothers you in your heart, and what makes you wake up in the middle of the night and then doesn’t let you sleep for the rest of it.

In short, you know what you don’t have, what you have, and what you show that you have but don’t have.

That’s why, in every sense of the currency, everybody on the street looks far better off than you…


…And you know what! Interestingly…most of the people you have crossed have also been thinking the same. 🙂
