30. They Don’t Compare Themselves to Others

With Facebook and Instagram, we are constantly aware of what others are doing. Instead of living our own lives in privacy, we have to constantly measure ourselves against our peers. This has been proven to create more depression, loneliness, and unhappiness in today’s society compared to any other generation.

Rich people are comparing themselves to their past selves rather than other people. They think back to the moments when they did not have as much as they do right now.
