I feel you have fully grasped what Faulkner is saying in this quote. As a modern society, it is so easy to compare ourselves with others, especially with social media. There is that feeling of `I’m not doing enough’ and ‘Everyone is having more fun than me’. As you stated though, when we do this we forget ourselves. The only person we are in competition with is ourselves. As previously stated, watch out for those pesky commas. Also, I really like the layout of your blog. I’ve enjoyed reading your entries over the term. Good job!
