It sounds like you've been feeling this way for a while now. It can weigh heavily on you to compare yourself to others. </p><p>When you mention that other people have better lives than you, are there some things you feel like you're missing out on? It's understandable to long for things other people have that you don't have. However, you want to make sure you're not dwelling too much on those things. To put it in perspective, what are some aspects of your life you are grateful for? Practicing thankfulness is a good way to reframe how you see not only your life, but the lives of others.</p><p>To give you some ideas on where to start, here are some great links from our website YLYV:<br></p><ul><li><a href="/pages/the-attitude-of-gratitude.aspx?Topic=Understanding%20Happiness">The Attitude of Gratitude</a><br></li><li><a href="/pages/tip-finding-thankfulness.aspx?Topic=Understanding%20Happiness">Finding Thankfulness</a><br></li></ul><p>If you have any more questions or are looking for more options, feel free to reach back out.
