During a facebook conversation with someone who’s become a pretty good friend recently, we were chatting about the gym, as we both go to the same one. We were discussing what we were doing there, and what we were trying to achieve, and she said that she was “in EXACTLY the same place” as me (her capitalisation, not mine). Now she might feel that she’s got to lose a bit of weight, but we’re talking about a few pounds here, or perhaps a stone or so. She’s at least 15 years younger than me, she’s fit and healthy.
IT’S NOT EXACTLY THE SAME!
IT’S NOT EVEN SLIGHTLY THE SAME!
This is quite difficult, because I’m not looking for sympathy, or understanding, but what I’ve got to deal with is not the same as what she has to deal with. She’s fine tuning, and I’m rebuilding. Or some other equally crap analogy. Perhaps just recognition of the task ahead of me would be something.
I’m feeling sorry for myself aren’t I? lol.
I probably need to let this go, and quickly, but right now, that bugs me sooooooo much.
