"Blowing out someone else's candle won't make yours shine any brighter" - Unknown


Never put others down when you want to make yourself feel better. It's probably one of the most awful things to do because you are literally tearing someone else apart just to bring you 'happiness' and that's just plain wrong. Do other things to make you feel better about yourself which doesn't include hurting others. I always find it's usually jealousy that causes people to do this, but even though the green-eyed monster is a tricky little thing, you should always try and suppress it and move on.
P.S. - I don't have a twin, both people are me in the photo (:

Currently in Rome right now! It's lovely here and i'm really enjoying the weather (i'm getting so tanned it's unreal!) I've taken many pictures (the apartment i'm staying at is good for photography) and also the city is something very beautiful too which I have taken many shots of as well (: I'll still be here another week until I fly back to the UK.

---

AFTER NOTE: I'm sick and tired of people saying "in a dark room it'll technically look brighter.." etc etc etc. The fact is if you blow out someone else's candle your flame will not increase in size or brightness. It's meant to be a metaphor and i'd appreciate if people didn't bash the message - got nothing nice to say? Don't say it. I'm trying to spread a positive message and it's really annoying when people try and add comments where they think they're being "witty" to bash the message. Any other comments against the message will be ignored and perhaps even removed.

Ahhh, so this is where this inspirational meme is from! I've seen this on tumblr and pinterest and thought, wow...she is absolutely right. I'm so thrilled that I've accidentally stumbled upon the original source! :) (Smile) You are gorgeous by the way!

wait I just properly re-read your comment - do you mean the actual quote that's used or the picture?
