I like this one.  I measure myself against the perceived flaws of others.  They are the pedestals upon which I prop myself up and thus stand out, at least in my own mind.  Sometimes I feel better by the way I judge others.  "Thank God I am not like that person," I say.  The reality is that I am a miracle.  Any good that I do is a miracle because I have a lot of character defects that could very well derail me and send me spiraling into a quagmire of misery.  I am not better than other people.  Just for today I do not live in chaos.  Even then, I suspect that someone is feeling better that they are not like they perceive me to be.  Maybe my flaws can make someone feel better about themselves?
