Why is it we tend to compare ourselves to people who are in the 10% or less when it comes to income, social status, neighborhood, profession, etc? It seems like a “no win” situation as we set ourselves up to fail with these skewed correlations.
The United States is one of the – if not the wealthiest country in the world, not to mention how safe it is, stable government, as well as the abundance of food in general.
If we want to be fair with ourselves we should compare ourselves with the majority of the rest of the world. We will soon realize the ample resources and opportunities at our disposal, as well as the privilege’s we have just by being born in this country. This is something we had absolutely no control over, but are lucky to be here.
It’s our nature to continue to evolve and look towards the next thing, but let’s not lose perspective of the big picture. After all, it’s a big world out there.
