What does this mean for you? Perhaps the most straightforward thing you can do is to try to keep yourself focused on whether you have enough money to do what you would like to do rather than on the amount of money that the people around you make.
That is not easy of course. If your neighbor comes home with a nice car, it is easy to feel a pang of jealousy. If a friend goes on a fantastic trip, you might wish you could do the same. But unless you're lucky enough to be making more money than everyone around you, you might be best off just focusing on the joys of what you have."
