Appreciate you sharing this with us, and I certainly agree that comparisons and trying to live up to other’s idea of who or what we’re supposed to be can cause all kinds of difficulties and suffering.
I remember that conversation we had a few months ago and I’m still planning to write about knowing vs. feeling one of these days. Time is at a premium right now after some big life changes in recent months (all good things) and writing on Medium has, unfortunately, been put aside for the time being (other non-Medium writing is still happening, though). Happy to see you’re still publishing your writing here. Take care and hopefully I’ll make some time to publish something soon.
