"A thing that’s obvious but easily overlooked is that feeling wealthy has little to do with what you have. It’s more about the gap between what you have and what you expect. And what you expect is driven by what other people around you have."
-Morgan Housel, from this post
As they say in the twelve-step movement, "an expectation is merely a premeditated resentment." Comparison doesn't help much either. As Louis L'Amour noted, there's always a faster gun. Gratitude for what we do have is a key to power. How about we try to be worthy of what we do have?
