No words can describe my gratitude and love for this year´s young spirits. It is not an easy task to open up and share your deepest thoughts with millions and millions of people. Every young spirit was unique in their own way and I learned enormously from your wise thoughts and great hearts. You are all a true inspiration. Once again, thank you.
“STOP COMPARING YOURSELF WITH OTHERS. IT IS A BIG MISTAKE THAT MANY PEOPLE DO.”
They compare and some feel better and some worse. None of this will give you peace and happiness in life. There is no point in comparing yourself with others. Firstly, everyone is unique. Secondly, people might seem to be happy but the truth could be that they are not. People are never what they seem to be like. You might compare yourself to a fake image of someone. Society is about always portraying your best sides and the accepted and included in a group. Compete with your best sides, push each other down and reach the peak of a fake world. Stop comparing and find what you feel is meaningful.
