Unsuccesful Improvements

I am always trying to improve myself by becoming other people. Taking their qualities and trying to project them. And I am never satisfied.  When I see other people succeed I feel angry at them rather then happy for them  because I am a total failure. I guess I just wanted to share that thought, there isn't reall much else to it.

Plumstar has a very valid point about circumstances that govern success. There are so many different reasons why some succeed and others do not. Circumstances could be financial, educational, emotional or just down right luck.<br />

Never hold yourself to the standards of others. You talked about being child like. Remember that a child holds themselves up for the world to see exactly who they are. A child also tries to learn everything they can so that they can succeed in life. Use that to learn how to succeed in your own life.

I do the same thing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I'm happy for the other person, sometimes I'm pissed off.<br />

There's nothing wrong with trying to model yourself after a successful person. But sometimes it can be hard; those people likely had different circumstances than yourself. <br />

What's great is that you're honest with yourself about what you do & how you feel...a lot of people are like you but can't even admit it to themselves, and it's sad. <br />

Self-awareness = not a "total failure".
