Compare People~

Filed Under Life/Me, General | 

Do you sometimes feel envy of your peers that seem to be much better off that you today? Whether it was in term of career, financial, family, love or personal achievement?

My mother said “Do not compare between people or else you’ll never be happy” and how true it is. I heard of an ex schoolmate that earned twice as much as me in other country and it makes me green with envy.

Did she put more effort in her career or does she trades in more time than me? However it is of different industry and I guess I should be grateful of what I have now. After all, I have many friends who are not even at my level yet. =)
