If you are a true friend, you are happy for that person and want them to be successful. If you have true friends and you gain great success in life, it's an inflated ego you may have versus what you blame others having issues with.
That. Is the most simple reason that I compete with myself every day and no one else anymore. I've learned it keeps me more grounded and humble, I can love others more, I'm actually more successful and most of all I'm happier!!
This is not true,well for me anyways !!! My heart is so happy when my friends and family come up and catch a break!!! I don't want to be around anyone who would be jealous or aggravated at our success.
