How is it that people even younger than you have bypassed at the next turn? Why do they have everything and you have little?
"Envy is destructive." Sigmund Freud
What robs you of happiness, strength, productivity and diligence? Envy. Every time you envy someone, you only make things worse for yourself. Envy starts the process of self-destruction of a person. It gnaws and makes us lose faith in ourselves. We give up, stop appreciating what we have, and begin to see ourselves as failures. But it's all stupid and extremely dangerous.

There are always people who have achieved something more than you. But there are not so many of them, maybe a few percent.
How do you deal with being a miserable loser in front of someone else? Why is someone younger richer, more successful and happier than you? Why do you feel that you mean nothing in life and missed everything? How to cope with feelings of envy, resentment and annoyance?

No matter how much you earn and what you have achieved. Having more money than you need will not make you happy. It is important to do something that you enjoy. Then you will be happier than the rest. That's all that matters.
Don't compare yourself to others. You do not know what hardships they had to endure and what to face. Maybe there's nothing to envy? Everyone has a different path in life.
