I'm better than you.
At being me. I'm not better at being you, though. In that area you have me beat. There's also quite a lot of you out there, which means there's a large number of things I'm actually quite bad at. This is a bit troubling and bothersome, but I guess I'll have to live with it. When it comes to being me, though?
I'm better than you.
Some of you may be able to see, in your mind's eye, many alternate versions of yourself that are looking at you, causing you to question yourself.
There's the many variations of past you. Such as a past you from when you made a large decision, or another past you from when you let an opportunity pass you by, as if urging you to second guess all of your past actions. Or perhaps the past you that had to make a large sacrifice to obtain something. To add to this, you might even be able to see the you that might've been. Having chosen differently than the current you, the you that might've been seems to have many things you currently lack. The you that might've been doesn't seem plagued by regret, due to having taken a different path and is leading a different, happier life.
There is also the future you, perhaps the one you see most clearly. Future you has obtained all the things you currently strive so hard towards, yet seem to barely make any progress at all. As if to purposefully add to your frustration, future you is looking at the current you with a self-confident smile - it almost looks like a smirk. A further reminder didn't need of the gap between the abilities of the current you and the ones you strive for, that future you seems to have easily obtained. All of these other versions of you may be causing you to severely doubt yourself.
Well, now you can fire back. You can raise your arm, point at each and every last one of them, and defiantly decree "I'm better than you."
And they will smile back, for this is what they have been telling you all along.
