Compared to whom?

One of the worst things to do is to compare yourself to others, and it’s important to note that this includes when others compare you to others as well.

There are a few people I’ve grown up with or have been in a similar position to, and I’m sure it’s human nature for others to compare us. Their experiences are entirely different from mine, and that can be hard for others to understand.

This falls under the unchangeable category, and that means it aligns entirely with the ‘futile to worry about’ category.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
