Cheers to accepting Me as me and You as you!
When there are comparisons, we often find them offensive. Comparisons are not bad till they are portrayed thus.
What I am is Me. What you are is You. Yet being two different people is what makes comparisons possible. (https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/comparison)
But if we are two different people then how can you compare?
In every situation I find myself in, I think of how different I am from those around me. It is simple. It is straightforward and it is about being who I am. For the other person similarly, it is about being them. When each of us are distinct from the other, the act of comparing similarities or dissimilarities is purely academic. And unnecessary, I feel.
Even in similarities there are differences. “You and she are so alike. Both of you are extremely bold.” My ‘bold’ could be about speaking my mind fearlessly while hers could be about daring to drive to another friend’s place, in another state all by her herself.
The difference remains, As it should always be. My actions contain, My thoughts, values as I see. Yours would be the way You see things in your world, How can both display, Mine or yours as similar words? I love my tea, You may love a drink, I care to keep my peace as key And you value your friendships links. Each is entitled to view around The way each finds their peace, For what I go thru come from my ground And your playing field is your centrepiece! When we find the stillness of satisfaction, Within us and in our actions, Then comparisons disappear as do reactions, The desire to just be us becomes the biggest attraction!
