Those outstanding people you know? Just like you.

Remember that everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something and has lost something.
- H. Jackson Brown

But they do disguise it well, don't they? It is so very easy for us to think that others we know have no problems, no crises, no mind-numbing heart-stopping moments when the future seems as if it may never come.

Even those who are extremely successful with something (such as athletics or art) have focused so much of their time and effort into reaching that level of expertise that hey have had to omit many important parts of their lives that we might consider critical--they have not had time to be complete people because they had to spend their time being best at one thing.

We are all flawed and troubled in some ways. There is no advantage in thinking otherwise.
