My dear,

Why do you care if they’re more attractive than you? Why do you ask if their work is more liked than yours? If their style is more understood? If they’re richer? Why do you obsess?

Why do you compare?

You are legendary in your own right, there’s no need for that. Live in the joy, bring it closer, let the plunder of comparison go by you.

Falsely yours,
Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt
