“There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. ”

– Desmond Tutu

It’s all too easy these days to look at other people’s lives with a quick glance and see nothing but perfection. The problem with that is you start to think yours is a failure. You start to compare yours to the “perfect” life you see before you and lose confidence in what you are doing in yours. Before long self doubt kicks in and you wonder where yours went wrong. And of course, of course we are men. We can’t have those thoughts, we are meant to be the strong ones right?! But that’s the problem. None of what you see is reality. It’s a highlight reel of someone’s day or the most perfect moment in their life. You don’t see the lonely nights in or the anxiety of will you “succeed” in life. You just see what people want you to see. I own a business, I have some great friends and an amazing family around me but I have daily struggles and fears of whether I’ll build the life I think I should have or make a success of my business or be able to provide for the children I don’t yet have! It’s crazy but when all I see around me is my peers supposedly succeeding and my life not where I want it to be it’s easy to think I’m doing something wrong and failing despite so many things going well.
