    Serious question, not joking around.

    Compared to other people who have become extremely accomplished and successful in their careers or w/e they do for a living, do you ever feel like a massive nobody? People like Mark Zuckerberg, who are multi-BILLIONAIRES thanks to their own genius inventions make me jealous. Even if I compare myself to someone who has a decent amount of disposable income, nice house, nice car and can afford several vacations per year, I tend to feel jealous of them.

    Anyone else ever feel this way?
    (I'm not looking for support, just am genuinely curious if others feel the same)...

    I've done very well for a kid that was born naked. I'm a winner.

    I promised myself somewhere in the teenage life
    I'd never submit to the ones I will not be like
    Live in a hole
    But stay close to my kind
    Cause they understand what burns in my mind ....

    but if you check in to Hotel California...don't expect to be leaving it, with or without a key!

    P.S.
    what you don't know is how much in debt those acquaintances of yours are....

    Grass always seems greener on the other side of the street, but when up close...it looks worse than yours....

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    outside of that....a lttle bit of jealousy isn't bad as long as it is the fire that sets you in to motion to do something 'about it'.

    Sounds like a pretty severe case of class envy to me.
    Do you also feel jealous of people you believe to be much poorer than you but are clearly quite happy and content in life? Or do you simply tell yourself, "why wouldn't they be happy, they aspire for nothing more" and forget about them?
