“ I'm a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy. ”

Stop comparing yourself to other people, just choose to be happy and live your own life.
Human folly is that people are always trying to extract joy from the outside.
If you want to be successful, surround yourself with people who are more successful than you are, but if you want to be happy, surround yourself with people who are less successful than you are.
