“I am ashamed to admit this, but I am unhappy when I see others succeed. Secretly, I want them to fail and I am filled with rage to watch people I know have the things I want. I obsess about their success, as if it somehow has anything to do with my own. I am deeply afraid of failure. I always feel less successful than everyone else. And this angers me because I feel like I deserve more. I'm trying to realize that other people's success has nothing to do with my sense of failure. I can do this.”
