One nice variation of that quote I've been seeing is "Don't compare your behind the scenes to someone else's highlight reel". It's far too easy for us to reflect on all the daily hurt and trials we go through, only to compare it to someone else's most glorious 15 minutes and feel like we've failed. When in reality most of us are fighting some sort of battle, many just hide it well.
