Unexpected benefit

I’ve always had this thing where I look at other people and the first place my mind goes is the ways their life must be better than mine (despite my having a really really good life, which drives me crazy). I’ve been working to correct that but it hasn’t been easy to shake.

And I just realized tonight that with the mind blowing progress I’ve been making with SCS, now the first place my mind goes when I look at those same people is how I’m pretty sure I manage my emotional life so. much. better than they do. It feels good to think that. Not in a smug way, just quietly proud.

My goal eventually is to not feel compelled to compare myself to others at all, and I know I’ll get there, but this feels like a good intermediate step.
