Is there any like disorder or something that even though I have a great life and everythings going great you still get jealous of some people or things people are doing and I just never feel good enough? I constantly want to be better than everyone around me. Even when I know I'm doing just fine. Is this a part of depression? I've always been like this for as long as I can remember.Answer Question

You're insecure about yourself. This is where jealousy comes from. It's really an ugly character to aways want to "one up" someone. Not, bashing, everyone is guilty of this at some point in their lives. You have to count your blessings everyday, & look in the mirror & compliment yourself. TRUST ME when i say that if everyone threw their troubles in a pile, you would take one look at their troubles & grab your pile RIGHT back. The grass may seem greener, but it's really the same color once you get to the other side. You have to find it in yourself to be happy w/ what you have & the way life is going for you right now. Obviously, if you feel the need to be better than someone else, then truly, you feel like you are lacking something inside yourself. You feel the need to make up for something you think you don't have. Make a list of all your good qualities. No one is perfect, that makes life more beautiful.

You cannot put a price tag on happiness. It's the small things like love, family & friendship that people tend to look past. But those are the ONLY things that bring out our true selves & our true happiness. Material things & superficial things should not be something to strive for, those things will never find you true happiness. Once you find the gold within yourself, you'll be able to shine w/ out having to one up anyone. Do you feel you are a GOOD person?
