It’s unsettlingly easy to fall into the comparison rabbit hole nowadays. People try their best to display the best versions of themselves on various social media sites, potentially causing us to envy them, albeit subconsciously.
I have looked up to people in my life because they seemed to have it all worked out and seemingly exuded a happy vibe. Only to find out later that those very same people were, regrettably, fundamentally unhappy.
We shouldn’t look for happiness outside ourselves, in other people, and by no means in (those people’s) possessions. To compare is to despair. Look for a wholehearted, full feeling of contentment inside.
