So back in Season 5 of @rupaulsdragrace Miss Alyssa Edwards throws this little bolt of, to be quite honest, incredibly profound advice across the room at Coco Montrese who is bemoaning one of Alyssa’s wins.
This has helped me through quite a lot. And here’s why.
Now at first, it seems negative. It seems like maybe it calls for one to see themselves as superior to others. But I read it as, ‘don’t waste your time feeling negatively about all your friends & those you love & respect. It’s not a competition. The only person you should try to be better than is YOURSELF.’ It’s not perfect, but it does help sometimes.
