sometimes, comparing oneself to others is a dangerous thing. granted, it is vital for getting ideas, to drive oneself outside one's own comfort zone - i think you can perfectly see that with young kids: if big sister can walk, i should give it a try too; if big cousin zips up his anorak all by himself, so can i. but there's a point when comparison starts giving you that tunnel vision thing. and you lose sight of what you want yourself. it's good to find out what your own way is (easier said that done, i know, i know, i so know).
but you gotta do it your own way.
