Great post, deserves more likes ... spot on with "don't compare yourself to others"!

That's also what I always say to people who go on about "you have to blog, you have to do this, you have to be in the top 3 percent" ... I always tell them, hey relax, you don't "have to" do anything of all that, just do it if you're intrinsically motivated.

People just drive each other insane nowadays on social media with their perfect hyped and pimped Instagram lives and whatnot, it's just unhealthy and I'd even say hysteric, we devs should try to be better than that.
