You shouldn’t have to put others down just to build others up. You might not know what they’ve gone through or what they’re going through right at that moment. You shouldn’t have to push others down to make yourself feel better. Find what works best for you, no not everyone will agree or understand but it’s not for them to understand, it’s your life not theirs. You’re the most important person in your life and you need to make sure you are taken care of to the best of your abilities.
