For some reason I've been doing that comparison thing again.
Nothing sets you up failure more than comparing yourself to anyone else.
I know this and I've known it for a long time. For most of life I've been happy to be me. I've never wanted to be anyone else or to look like anyone else.
But the longing to be different and not be who I am right now is what leads me to feel disappointed in myself. The fact I know I'm acting out of character yet I continue to go with it also disappoints me.
I don't.think.that there is worse emotion to feel than disappointment as it is on a par with despondency.
Of all the things I need to do, the main thing is to stop punishing myself and drowning my emotions with food.
Something that is easier said than done.
