Whatever you think about Jim Carrey… I think he’s on to something here (even though the English isn’t good.)
I often hear people wishing their lives were different. “I wish I had a lot of money… I wish I had a big house… I wish I were famous.”
But the truth is… there isn’t anyone in the world I would trade places with. I had a rough “growing up,” — worse than many middle class kids… better than many low income kids. I was born with good health, white skin and a good brain.
When you think you wish you had… x, y, z… when you look at some other person, family, job, car and wish you had it, stop yourself. The truth is, you don’t know anything about that other person’s life. What you see on the surface, may NOT reflect the reality.
My two cents: be grateful for what you have, for who you are. You are a gift to the world and you’re here for a reason. Figure it out.
