When we judge others we are simply being reminded of a part of ourselves we do not love.
Some guy on a Facebook thread said this,
But I'd heard it before, from someone who drinks tea and eats scones with me on a Monday,
Success is not something you feel at the time.
Sure, you enjoy achieving a cool thing,
pulling something off,
making the grade.
But it tends to be later that we really appreciate our successes.
Later, days, weeks, years later
We reflect on how we did it
That we did it at all
If you are going to measure your success,
do it in retrospect
Stories are helpful.
They tell us what has been
They let us share, and care
They help us learn lessons that matter
And forget hurts that don't.
Stories warn us of what we can expect
and allow us to understand why things are
And what has been
It's comforting to know a story so well
that we can recite it without reading the words
Except when we know our version of the story so well
We've forgotten the actual words all together.
