If you want to feel better about anything, stop comparing. Stop comparing what is to what was. Stop comparing what you wanted to what you got. Stop comparing your fantasies to your reality. Stop comparing where you think you should be to what think you should have.
Instead, look at where you are without comparison. When you can find the courage to focus on everything you absolutely are, you begin to master your life. The more you focus on what you have and what you are, the more positive energy and magnificence you will attract into your life.
