    Of course!  To anyone who is more successful (mostly everyone I know), richer and thinner.  Seriously.

    No, not in a negative way.Yes, if I can learn something creative by comparing my life with others then I do compare it.

    Oh yes, Mansi2512!  All the time.  However, it is usually something like "Well, it must be nice!" or "So that's how the other half lives!"  To consciously compare my life with other people's would be pointless, considering that their circumstances and mine have likely been different, therefore different lives.  Envy?  Of course (wish I was pretty like her or had long hair).  Jealousy?  Not so much.  My life is a product of what I have made of it with what God has given me to use.  Good question!  Thanks for asking!

    Yes, I think it is only natural to.   Sometimes it makes me feel good about myself, but other times it makes me feel like I could have achieved more.  I don't think that we will ever be able to truly benchmark our lives compared to someone else because everyone has a different story.  Plus some people would value success monetarily or others on the relationships and friendships that they have developed.

    Only when I was a child overshadowed by a bunch of giants much older than I who seemed to know everything while I seemed to know nothing.  Eventually and gradually both illusions clarified.  :-)

    I think we all have at one point. I compare to compete. I look at others peoples work and try to make mine better.
