More often than not, we compare ourselves with others, based on what society says, how other people are living, and what the majority thinks of as success.
There is no need to spend the best hours of our best days just comparing our success with other people.
We assume other people have their life taken care of in all aspects, but the truth is that everyone is struggling. Some have job issues, financial, or relationship issues. Just having a (projected) happy face does not mean that everything is hunky-dory with others.
Even billionaires have relationship issues, struggling and juggling with life. Many are self-medicating, and while outsiders may think they have everything, they in fact are as miserable as anyone.
You need to have a personal definition of success based on your own values, not what is defined by society, neighbours or even your family.
Just staying in your lane will relax you and you can then function instinctively without any comparisons, living your own life to the fullest.
