It is very interesting how the same person can play different roles in different situations. And it all depends on the social surrounding that you are in that will best determine how your actions will be.
For example, if you are in a group where you are the older, people will listen to you, whereas if you are with a group that are your age, you might not have anything interesting to say, thus you stay quite. So your behavior shifts, in some places you are the leader, everyone listens to you and in another you don’t even speak.
This is mostly seen among men and women that have friends younger than they are. Those people usually search for environments in which they are listened to and looked up on.
Same applies to every single person in our daily lives. Sometimes we are with people that make us happy and proud by what we have become and other times it’s the opposite was around; we feel total losers.
In such situations, we should all remember the song sunscreen:
“Don’t waste your time on jealousy, sometimes you’re ahead and other times you’re behind. The race is long, and in the end it’s only with yourself”.
Even if it is not exactly jealousy, you will always find people that have accomplished more; have better jobs, better salaries, better wives/husbands… In such cases we need to all remember the blessings we have in our lives, and feel satisfied by what we have, and what we have become.
Love and accept yourself the way you are!
