you have to keep on reminding yourself: this is normalcy – people do admire other people – and you do, too. so why do you grumble? be gracious, be glad, that there is someone amazing in another person’s life; someone whom that person can look up to and draw inspiration from, to learn from and lean on.
why are you discouraged? we are all our own persons. maybe you are someone amazing in someone else’s life, too. maybe you are not. does it really matter to you so much that you have to be that amazing person? if yes, then work towards it; not sulk about it. don’t just look into the mirror and lament how someone else’s reflection appears much better than yours; the man in the mirror changes as you do.
don’t be so eager to paint yourself onto someone else’s life.
