Sometimes we envy others' apparent ease or success in this life compared to our own. Others sometimes seem to have it so much better than we do that we can tend to devalue our own achievements or place in this life. There was once a man who bought the latest underwater diving equipment. As he tried out his equipment in forty feet of water, he saw another man who had no equipment at all. Filled with envy, he walked over to the other man and wrote with his underwater pen and notepad: "How can you stay under water without equipment?" The man grabbed the pen and pad and wrote, "I'm drowning, you idiot!" We don't need to compare ourselves—we just need to let ourselves be OK.
