One of my favorite sunsets yet 🌞 I hope this picture expresses the beauty of seeing the ocean under 2 hues.
It’s interesting how we can all look at nature’s beauty and never feel threatened or resentful. The same is not true for our own species. We look at each other’s beauty so often with spite. Why? Why can’t we appreciate each other like a living sunset?
Ultimately this comes down to insecurity. We can never be a mountain or a blue ocean, so we never feel that these things take away from our own ability to shine. Now, another human can do something that we could do, too, “if only ___”, & therein lies the spite for others. Out of fear — fear that you won’t accomplish what you want, fear that you’re not deserving of attention & care, fear that someone will take what was meant for you.
When you look at others with spite & jealousy, you’re only trying to distract yourself from the fear deep in you that says “maybe you’re not good enough to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.” It’s a backwards attempt at quieting that insecurity. Don’t attack the people who make your fear louder, attack the fear itself.
If you ever listen to anything I say, let it be this: other humans are not your competition; the only person who will ever truly stop you from being the person you want to be is you. And no one is above this flaw; Im absolutely talking to myself here as much as to any another person.
