It’s very easy to be envious of someone, comparing their haves to your have nots. Yet it’s so important to remember that the measure of your worth cannot be on the standard of someone else. The circumstances that influence our lives from our privileges to our decision-making processes are so vastly different that it’s impossible for statements like “If they have/have accomplished this, I should have too” to have any real merit or truth.
Be inspired by the success of others. Don’t let it dampen your own aspirations or daily actions, or turn into bitterness that will only slow you down like a weight on your heels.
