Things could be worse, but I don’t care.

You know how sometimes, people try to make you feel better by saying…”hey, things could be worse?”

For example, I saw a post on Gothamist this morning saying I should pipe down about the crowds on my L train platform, because the trains in Beijing are much worse.

Sorry, but I don’t buy into this logic anymore.

Here’s to striving for what can be in your own life. Not judging things by simply being “better” than they could be. Not judging your life by comparison to others. Not determining your success by looking at your peers.

If there’s one thing I’ve been thinking about in my RID project, and in my changing of my name from “Dave” to “David” — it’s been about only comparing myself…to myself.

That’s MY choice, anyway. 😉
