Noegoicpatterns, you are awesome! I definitely agree with the fact that happy people don't feel the need to compete. As I become comfortable and happy with myself, I also feel less that way, but then again, happiness wouldn't make you feel those feelings of negativity and depression over not doing as well.
It's not about keeping up with others, but it is hard not to compare yourself, especially when you're young (or at least that is what older people tell me). I still do it, but not really through social media. I have known really, truly amazing people in my life and I know that they are just doing amazing things in all aspects - socially, romantically, and now in their career fields. I, on the other hand am doing terribly at two of those, and could do a lot better in the last one.
It's a double-edged sword. On the one hand, I think it is great that everyone around me is doing well, it shows that at one time I had a great taste in friends, and they have influenced me for the better. But on the negative, how do you elevate yourself to be at that level of happiness? Trust me, they are happy, even though there are problems I don't see. For example, one girl has a medium group of close-knit friends, a boyfriend, and a great job (or at least well-paying). Another is pursuing her dream of becoming a pilot and has a great group of friends (romantic status unknown). And then there is me...
But back to you. Are you working or going to school? How do you feel your social life is? What, if you could pick one thing, would be the most important thing for you at this moment in your life?
