You cannot achieve a healthy and joyful state of being by constantly comparing your life to that of the people around you.

Cultivate the willpower to be detached from what you merely see and hear about others, as this is not helpful to your heart’s desire for your life.

Focus instead on keeping your own way forward clear and in the process, you will lighten your load and receive the gift of peace.
