"Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy." - Robert A. Heinlein My parents made sure that I could take care of my own, stuff wasn't handed to me. I see kids today, and worry not only for their future but for mine as well.
"A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it just blooms." --- Everything is you and God thing, and there is nobody else involved. So comparing or competing is just waste of time. Keep focusing on yourself, focusing of loving yourself.
