One of the great benefits of attending weight watchers or Alcoholics Anonymous is hearing that you are not alone in our struggles.

When it comes to our problems, we can become very isolationist – – “no one can understand.”.

This is the ego’s way of trapping you in the problem.

Remembering that people you perceive to be more successful than you, more attractive, more gifted, and more loved, feel every bit as uncertain and frightened as you actually helps you feel less so.

There’s a line in a blue man group song that says “will you see that I am as insecure as everybody else?“

Don’t buy the lie that other people are happier or feel better about themselves just because they’ve got more and shinier stuff than you.

Master the capacity for feeling good about who you are and where you are rather than comparing yourself to others.
