I feel bad for even mentioning this, but I have a hard time being happy for others. I find myself avoiding being around those who appear to have it all because I feel so miserable. I am a kind person and I try to go out of my way to help others, but I cannot stand to feel inferior to other people. Anyone else ever feel this way? Do you ever feel like you can't be around others who seem to have everything cuz it makes you feel bad about yourself? I feel like I am always trying to compete with those around me and I shouldn't have to. I congratulate people on their accomplishments, but deep down I resent them for it and I feel so bad! I know that this has a lot to do with my poor self-esteem, but I don't know how to get over it.
