It's so easy to look at an artist in your field, or in your city, who's your age or younger, AND GET SO FUCKING MAD - because they're succeeding, and you're not.
That's life, kiddo.
People are born with all kinds of advantages.
And all people are born with their own disadvantages.
There's no guarantees with this thing.
Life is a giant chaos you experience once.
Sometimes you start at 0.
Sometimes you start at +50,000.
And sometimes you start at -250,000.
It's not where you start, it's where you end up.
Anger & jealousy take you further away from your goals, not closer.
Let those feelings go.
Don't spend any time thinking about what rival poets have more than you.
