When we compare ourselves to others, we're bound to live in misery.

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wasallam) said: “When one of you looks at one who stands at a higher level than you in regard to wealth and physical structure he should also see one who stands at a lower level than you in regard to these things.” [Muslim]

This is true. They say the "grass is always greener on the other side"

Allah has given us and taken away from us what we are destined for and we should accept it and better ourselves in his worship because at the end of day, there is always so much to be grateful for, Alhumdulillah. Comparison between others and ourselves is utterly useless and doesn't give us happiness, but rather gives nothing but misery.
