The Fruitless Journey

Here’s a thought…instead of focusing on others, why don’t you focus on yourself.  What I mean is stop looking outward for anything.  Stop looking out for validation.  Stop comparing yourself to others.  Stop being envious.  Stop watching what others do and don’t do.  Stop judging.  Stop trying to find your fulfillment through comparison shopping.

Comparing yourself to others is kind of like trying to cook your favorite meal while shopping with someone else’s grocery list.  The two don’t match up.

I have learned a difficult lesson which consumed many of my years: if you are looking outward for any kind of fulfillment you will never, ever find it.  It is a fruitless journey.

Take a look deep inside yourself.

  1. One of my mottoes I have lived my life by: “If you don’t like what I’m doing don’t watch me do it.” Consequently my immediate family won’t talk to me because I lived the life I wanted – and I think I’ve had a much more interesting life. We need to be who we want to be, not what we think others would want or by comparing our lives to others. My life belongs to me.
