To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy…is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.--Ralph Waldo Emerson
We all have that one friend, or maybe you ARE that one friend, who is perfect at everything, who doesn't even have to try. Those of us on the other end of that spectrum kind of dislike that person at times, and when you spend the majority of your time with them, it can just drive you insane, much less crush your hopes of ever being better. With that being said, there is still no reason that you cannot be happy. As Emerson says, "set our own conditions to the events of each day". Do not let that thought make you unhappy because to God, we are all the same. No one is better than anyone else in his eyes. We are all sinners. Nobody is perfect, not even that friend who might seem like they are. We are all our own person. So, be proud of who you are, and do not be distressed if you cannot be like someone else. Be yourself, and in that you will truly find the joy in life.
