It’s disheartening to see how petty, judgmental, jealous and critical we can be of other people. This is especially true when someone does well. We often jump to quick conclusions and second guess their motivations or worthiness. My belief is that we do this more because of how we feel about ourselves rather than anything that the other person has done. In our highly competitive and materialistic society we are constantly reminded of what we don’t have or where we fall short and this hits even closer to home when the point of comparison is a peer.
