Dear JB: I get envious of my successful friends
I have been very depressed lately. It all started when I noticed that I feel very bitter when I see my friends making money while things aren't exactly working for me. It makes me feel like a failure. Like I am not working had enough. The worst part is that I noticed I even start to feel jealous.
I think I know that feeling where you feel like you are working harder, so you deserve better. Life is not that explicit. Life is really more complex than we can clearly comprehend.
The first thing you have to understand is that success is subjective. What does success mean to you? In my opinion, success is more than just having money.
Be grateful for the things that you have. When you count them as privileges, you will not have time to envy others. You have to understand that there is more to life than what people tend to show. There are many people who may meet your idea of success but you have to understand that they may even look at you and want some of the things that you have. Also, remind yourself constantly that you are not in a competition with anyone.
About you working hard and not seeing the kind of success you want, again it boils down to you being able to define what success means to you. When I look at the process I have to go through to attain the kind of success I want, I simply tell myself it is because I want something different. You are not just looking for money, you are looking for fulfillment that is why you are taking the longer routes.
Taking longer routes to success has its own benefits. It is the more sustainable form of success.
So whenever you see your friend succeeding, wish them well because you know that one day it will be your turn to be on the receiving end too.
