We all have this need to compare ourselves to the next....they have this much wealth and I have that.
This in turn leads to depression, low self esteem etc
Speaking with a counselor recently I am learning to block other peoples wealth levels and concentrate on my own wealth.
As soon as someone would mention they have this sorta wealth, or was given this amount of money or recieved this kinda gift, I would always compare it to my own life. Why didn't I get that, I don't own that amount of wealth etc etc
Self defeating talk, self bulling...its so destructive.
My new self talk goes along the lines of:
As long as my own wealth grows year by year, thats all that matters.
It is amazing how much better I feel, not comparing myself to the rest.
Its just a skill-set that I never had before, but which I am so glad to have now.
