Don't Compare Yourself To Others
“Every minute you spend wishing you had someone else’s life is a minute you spend wasting yours.”
It’s time for the Superbowl again. My husband is a HUGE Denver Bronco fan! I mean huge. If he had to choose between the Denver Broncos and me I’m not sure he would choose me. :-)
I’ve been pulled into this vortex and must admit that I, too, am now a Denver Bronco fan, and I really enjoy the football season. Although the Denver Broncos didn’t make it to the playoffs this year, it will still be fun to see who will win the Superbow!.
NFL players are valued in our society. They are valued for their strength and athletic prowess. These are two things I do not have as a chronic pain survivor. Because of this, there are times when I don’t feel valued. I forget to be grateful for and notice all the wonderful qualities that I do have, qualities that are unaffected by my physical health. When we compare ourselves to others we often forget to notice and be grateful for what we have been given.
