Connection and comparison

One thing I noticed when writing down the names of people from my childhood was that I compare myself to them unfavorably and I generally thought they thought less of me or they didn’t really like me. How interesting that I think the same thing about everyone on my list. Different people, same brain, I guess!

Another thing I’m noticing is even though these are people I’m talking about in the past, my thoughts *today* are that they didn’t like me or I wasn’t cool. I also noticed myself missing them as I thought more about my relationships and what I’ve learned from them.
