There are two kinds of people.
The ones you want to be like and the one’s who you don’t want to be like. It’s not rocket science, but i think it’s the simplest way to look at it. In my circumstance, I spend a lot of time admiring and wishing I could be more like other people and it hit me, perhaps the best thing to strive for is to be the kind of person people want to be like. This isn’t about stuff or having people want to ‘be me’ or ‘have what i have’ etc. It’s not about jealousy, it’s about admiration. Having a positive attitude, a good outlook on life , good energy, friendly, kind, those are all qualities my friends have but I can’t say i have those qualities. I’ll plan on cultivating them this year, because it’s better for me and those I love. It took a serious conversation with a loved one and some introspection for me arrive at this conclusion. It was painful, but worth it as the truth often is.
