That is normal. All you can do though is focus on what you do have and try to better your situation

Jealousy wont help your situation so try not to dwell on it. Most people's choices lead them to what they have and we all make different choices. As a one income household because we chose for me to be a sahm, we live on a strict, no fun budget that just gets us through paying bills and groceries and being self sustaining. I notice people having lots more money too, but I dont get jealous. Instead I ask my husband and I how we can do better with money so we have more. Hence the tight budget and lots of financial planning. Hopefully one day we can have more, though most likely never even close to what many people have.

Like another poster said keep your focus on what you do have. I know when we struggle, it's extremely difficult sometimes. Just remember that things change and could always change for the better. Stay positive momma!

You're not alone.

We don't have a ton of money, but we make the best of what we do have. We are thankful, and happy! :)

Been there. We do okay now but we have come a really long way. I remember the feeling though and it sucks a lot!
