These days, in the era of social media, it is easier to be envious of someone, than it is to be happy for them. Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat show us a constant 24-hour highlight reel of the best moments from the lives of our friends, family members, celebrities, people we look up to, and even complete strangers.
Social media is a constant reminder that, no matter how much you have, there is always somebody with more. You could have 100 million followers on Instagram, but footballer Cristiano Ronaldo would still have 89 million followers than you.
It’s unavoidable. There is always someone with more. There is always someone with more likes, more followers, more attention, more glory, more fame, and more wealth than you have.
