One of the easiest ways to heal is to make the idea of continuing to be emotionally restricted funny or silly.
Only when we compare ourselves to some other situation that is not our own do we find suffering through relativity.
If we accept our lessons, our challenges and inner work then we are all on our own path and capable of maximizing and advancing to our own spiritual fulfillment.
Focus on yourself. If you see others who are successful, then see that it is that much easier for yourself to attain the same success!
