2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?
I compare myself to a lot of people actually. It's never good, but I compare myself to my coworkers, my friends, my boss, even strangers. Generally, I see the really good things about them and the not-so-good things about myself. I guess its a good way of looking at the world, but not a good way to internalize it.
If I am looking at someone else poorly, and think I'd better, stronger, whatever, then I only end up feeling bad about myself. It's kind of a no-win there.
