Lesson Number Thirteen: Don't compare your life to others'.  You have no idea what their journey is all about.

'Why do other people look much happier than I am?' These are the words we sometimes utter unto ourselves. Not only to ourselves but also to others. Not only us but also other people tell us these. Sometimes they even say, 'Good to you, you're life is running smoothly unlike mine.' While hearing these words, we often thought our lives are much easier than theirs. But no, my friend. We are all the same in this grand arena of the universe. We are under the same sun, under the same moon, under the same stars. Our situations in life may differ, but we feel the same pain and feel the same happiness. No one can tell that the happiness of the rich is greater than the happiness of the poor. Or that the pains of the poor are greater than the pains of the rich. No. We are all the same? Why? Simply because, we are created by the same creator, the same GOD. We receive from Him the same peace, the same love, the same life. The difference we have from others is only our perception of the world, our perception of life. Thus, it is never fitting nor reasonable comparing ourselves with others. 

We also differ in our journey in life. Sometimes others are born with a golden spoon with them, like Prince Charles and Princess Kate. Others are born with debts on their backs, like the citizens of third world countries. Still it is not wiser comparing ourselves with others because we never know how they are doing in their journey. Above all, we all goes to the same end -- to DUST. 

Therefore, stop comparing yourself with others and start living and leading the GOOD life you have while you still can. 

Get happy!
