The 'Why Me' Heebie Jeebies

I went to a friend’s condo recently, and her place reminded me of my other friend’s condo, which is similar in the luxury department.
Both girls are my age.
Both girls do not have roommates.
Both girls have a nice car.
Both girls do not have any student loans.
Both girls have ‘normal’ jobs.
Both girls seem to think they are just great with money, but what both girls don’t realize is that…
both girls have fairly well off parents that are able to help them out :) Not trying to dish out any insults to those whose folks are blessed and willing to help them, i'm just saying. 

Everyone starts out somewhere, right?! At least I’ll be a stronger/wiser person after all of this repayment - or so they tell me.

This here, readers, is what I would like to call envy. And I’ve made up a new move in the face of said envy. Ready for it?

It’s called, ‘The Breathe & Pray.’ You take a deep breath, you say a quick prayer of thanks for what you do have, and you move your self-pity party on down the road in your Honda :)

Comparison is the thief of joy, folks!
