Take it off your chest...

I always have the need to compare myself to others. I do believe that the most important thing is to life a happy life and generally speaking I am (finishing up university and having a good relationship for over 4y now), but I still look at all the people who live "better" lifes than me - and that gets me down all the time. I really don't know how to get out of this habit.
