Seeing Others See

This is somewhat of a continuation of last week's post.

When you realize that someone else has also felt or thought what you previously thought was unique to you, a light goes on.

Colin Marshall:
"I've come to find myself asking only two qualities of a writer: honesty and clarity. The rest is window dressing."

Andy McKenzie:
This is going to be a brutally honest post. 
There's a part of my brain that admires each of my friends for their accomplishments, and wishes them future success. But I have to admit that there's also a part of my brain that is intensely, viscerally jealous of other people's successes and future plans. Some higher, more cognitive part of my brain recognizes that it comes from our human need to compare ourselves to others, but the base feeling remains nonetheless.

Ben Casnocha:
Edward Norton: You know that feeling that you're going to fail or be exposed as no-good? It never goes away.
