Those are good!

I work all the time on not comparing my life to others. It's hard though. I feel like I never measure up. I don't know how some people do all they do. I can barely make it through the day sometimes.

I don't "hate" anyone either. I think that's a good way to live your life. I might not like them, but hate is so strong. It only hurts me.

We're so much alike!
