Everything I am, everything I do, everything I say is something I've learned by example. I am nothing more than a bunch of bones and flesh with a set of skills. My skill set is broader than someone else's and narrower than yours.
That thought is both ungratifying and comforting because I know my skills multiply and improve with every day that passes and so are yours and someone else's - albeit at different paces.
Not accepting this concept would make me an idiot, and an idiot is all I'm trying not to be.
