What do you do when it seems like someone (whether you know them or not) is always more successful at doing things you do even though they didn’t have to struggle to get where they are? It hurts more when it’s someone you know.
It’s like you feel proud of your work and everything until they do something like you and they end up doing better than you.
I know it’s not good for me to feel envious or jealous, but what if I do? I can’t help myself except to think about something else. For example: I have tried to make Youtube videos and have become happy with how they turned out at first then I notice what I need to do to make them better and my friend makes just ONE video and it becomes more popular and appreciated in little time.
He’s got more suscribers and views from his one video than my 7+ videos total. And I’m one of the only ones who supported him making a video in the first place. The funny thing is: I knew he would be more successful than I would before he even made the video. I just couldn’t bring myself to discourage him. Why would I? I feel like the things he does in life all turn out awesome and great while the things I do or will do will turn out crap.
I know the whole thing about there will always be someone better and worse than you, but that doesn’t help anymore. Maybe I just need to get over myself and let it go? Maybe I just need to see myself in a different way? Or maybe I need to find comfort in the things God has given a gift for and forget about what anyone (even my friends) are good at?
