Everyone around me seems to be running ahead, having the time of their life, whilst I feel like I'm stuck in the same position, my feet firmly cemented in the ground, left hoping people will wait for me to finish what I'm doing so I can free my feet and catch up to them!
I hate feeling as if I'm not quite as good/funny/pretty/clever/(fill_in_the_blank) as other people, but I sometimes find myself comparing myself to others, wondering If i'm making the right life choices, why am I not doing the same things? Why don't I look like that, why don't I think like that etc. etc.
Then I saw this wonderful quote and remembered, I'm only human;
|Teddy Roosevelt, who knew he was so deep?|
It's normal for us all to have those moments where we wonder why we're not having the same success or lifestyle or whatever as another person.
But where will comparing yourself to another person get you? Absolutely NOWHERE!
Every individual is exactly that, individual. No two people on this earth will be exactly the same. I mean, even identical twins will have some differences in their likes/dislikes and lifestyles, right!?
Therefore we should stop comparing ourselves to other people, because they are nothing like us, and thats the brilliant thing!
We should just be happy with ourselves, and I truly, wholeheartedly believe that you can not expect another human being to love you, until you learn to love yourself.....
(in a non-egotistical way, mind. Let's not get all Kanye)
But yeah, give yourselves a biiiiiiigggg huggggggg...
now deep breath.........and release
OH AND GUESS WHAT!?
Remember I told you I had a job interview at Liverpool hospital? Well I didn't get the initial full time Audiology position, but I got a phone call this morning from the lady who interviewed me, and she offered me another position!
She said that I didn't get the full time job purely because I didn't have as much experience as the successful candidate*
but one of the Audiologists will be leaving to have a baby in sept, so I've been offered her maternity cover!
I is happy that I's gots a job! Even if it's temporary, monies is monies, and experience is experience! But it wont start until after I graduate (July).
*I hate when they say you didn't get the job because of lack of experience. What kind of vicious circle is this!? How can I get experience if you won't give me the chance to earn any!?!
Have any of you guys got any exciting job prospects coming up? pray do tell!
