I am better than you.
I am more talented than you.
I have a stronger heart than you.
I have survived more trauma than you.
I am nicer to people than you.
I have better morals than you.
I am smarter than you.
I understand the world better than you.

Who is "you?"
It all sounds vain out of context.
"You" does not mean "everyone."
"You" can be one person.
"You can be a group of similar people.
"You" is not everyone.

I am better than you
If you make poor choices in life.
I am more talented than you
If you do not have many hobbies.
I have a stronger heart than you
If you just give up when life is too hard.
I have survived more trauma than you
If you have had an easy life.
I am nicer to people than you
If you are a bully who loves to hate.
I have better morals than you
If you drink, do drugs, lie, and cheat.
I am smarter than you
If you are unintelligent and lack common sense.
I understand the world better than you
If you pretend everything is okay.

"You" is not everyone.
Everyone is not "you."
If "you" is not everyone,
Then who is the rest?
If "you" is not everyone,
"You" is not me,
I am not everyone,
Then the rest is "they."

They are better than me
If they succeed where I fail.
They are more talented than me
If they excel where I struggle.
They have a stronger heart than me
If they can bear situations that I cannot.
They have survived more trauma than me
If they have experienced the worst of the worst.
They are nicer to people than me
If they can socialize properly.
They have better morals than me
If they don't make as many mistakes.
They are smarter than me
If they have greater intelligence and judgment.
They understand the world better than me
If they have had their eyes open much longer.

No matter who you are,
How you grew up,
What you become,
How people see you,
There will always be people
Who are not as good as you.
No matter who you are,
What choices you make,
How hard you work,
What life you live,
There will always be people
Who are better than you.

Because none of us are worse than everyone.
None of us are better than everyone.
We just do our best to exist.
this came to me after some rude person called me a stuck up bitch. I wish people would realize it's impossible for me to be stuck up. I wish people would... well, understand this: reitannaseishin.wordpress.com/…

but you can't reason with people who refuse to be reasoned with, and it's hard to reason with people who decide that, instead of a civil confrontation, they strike with hate. or better yet, when people decide that throwing the first stone is better than just walking away and forgetting I exist. but those kinds of people... I am better than them.

this reminds me of one quote from a Terry Prtchet book. 'If you trust in yourself. . .and believe in your dreams. . .and follow your star. . . you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy'... I hope you see where I'm coming from!
