One thing I have realized through my journey is that it and I are unique. I may share experiences with others but only I have been through that combination of experiences. I also try to remember that what works for someone else may not work for me-whether it is changing my diet (I have to avoid bread and other carbs and soda because I have a difficult time stopping at one serving) or buying clothes (a-line tops do not work) or even doing a job (I am an excellent trainer but heaven forbid if you want me to do math in my head).
So why do I sometimes try to fit myself into a mold that is not me? Why do others try to do that to themselves and people around them? I know that I will never be the life of the party but if you need a ride home from the party I will be there. Yet I sometimes wish I was the life of the party.
I know that what works for you or my friend or my neighbor may not be the best fit for me. I have no problems with trying it (or deciding not to if it is to similar to something I have already done). Yet sometimes I feel frustrated because it didn't work for me. Some times I am happy for the experience (and done with it). Other times I have found something that works for me. I just need to remember this.
