You are like no one else.
It's true. You are you and they are they and never the twain shall meet.
When we're out of work, spending a little more time on the social web than we would have had time to before... it's easy, too easy, to look at the lives of others in our social circles and compare ourselves to those. They have a great job. They have a big family. They live in an amazing city. They have things that you want and you're just not sure how to get.
Guess what. You have things they want. You're living a life that is solely your own and you can't compare yourself to anyone else.
They have things you want? Awesome! Strive to get those things for yourself.
Just because you're a little down on your luck right now doesn't mean things won't be better soon. Especially not if you keep trying to make them better.
So, log off the social networks and spend some of this unemployed "down" time on you. And who you are. And on where you want to go.
