Life isn't fair. I know that. Why should it be?
It doesn't seem fair when you compare your siblings to your self. Why did your brother get the athletic ability AND the book smarts and you didn't? Why did your sister get the hot body while you struggle to find clothes to fit you? It doesn't seem fair.
To you it isn't. We each come here with our own set of gifts and challenges. You may not have received the great body like your sister but then you won't have the challenge she has of having others notice how intelligent she is. You may not have the athletic ability and book smarts of your brother but then you won't have the challenge of deciding on which area to pursue.
You see we all come here with talents that are meant to be used, however, we may have a hard time recognizing them because either we are so busy comparing our self to others we don't notice our own worth, they come easily to us, or they are not defined by the educational system and are overlooked.
For example you may have heard someone say that someone is a people person. What does that mean? Are they better at initial contacts or maintaining relationships? Does it mean that the person has very good people skills such as introductions, phone etiquette, and pleasantries? These are all areas that an employer looking for a receptionist would be looking for. As you can see, none of this is addressed in the educational system and yet it may be your unique talent. It is a talent. There are some people who absolutely abhor dealing with the public and those who thrive in it. Which one are you?
Instead of focusing on what you don't have, focus on what you do have. What works for you? What combination of talents do you have that you can spin your way? Best of luck.
