Better Than Before

It’s usually better to compare yourself to who you were before, instead of comparing yourself to other people. Because there will always be someone better than you at something you’d like to be the best at.

Even comparing yourself to the way you were before doesn’t always work. Because age will cause certain things to deteriorate. But on a deeper level — the spiritual level, you can become a more peaceful and loving person than you once were. That’s something worth striving for.
