How do i cope with people's perfect lives?

seeing people living the perfect life makes me question the purpose of life...what's the point of living if will be constantly reminded about the things i will never have?...

they say life is a gift.. yeah sure..if you're parents are rich or life works out for you great...what about for the rest of us? we didn't ask to be born and certainly didn't ask to have a crappy life, what are we suppose to do?

Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "How do i cope with people's perfect lives?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.

delete facebook and stop going on social media and your life shall be perfect too... you're living in a self made prison...

you have to remember that very few people live a perfect life at all... all you see is what you're meant to see...
they may look supremely happy in public, but they have just as numerous problems, worries, hang-ups, neuroses and unhappiness as the rest of us...
being jealous is pointless...
all most of us can ever do is work hard, and try to make your life as happy and as full as possible...

you sound like a weak-minded, immature person... grown-ups don't obsess over the lives of others...
if you're not happy with your situation, put on your big boy pants and make a change... go to school, get a degree, then get a tefl certificate and move to a country with a tropical beach... happiness achieved...

you ignore them, you work a job, you get a good education to get a good career of your passions, and you live out your life through you and not them... besides as much as they for show, show how happy they are for public views, their really not that happy... it's a ruse to look good in front of others... the more happier they look and the further they put themselves out there, the more it shows their lonely for friends, attention, and are unhappy... it's a proven fact that happy people usually keep it to themselves and don't go out gloating about it to the world to see... remember, ignorance is bliss...

stop looking at others! "your focus determines your reality"... visit a third world country for a while and see if your life is as hard as you think, then notice the attitude the locals tend to take about life as compared to where you live (probably the usa)... learn to appreciate where you are and what you have, whether little or much...

finally, try to stay away from debt like the plague, as much as possible, and learn to distinguish between what you really want, and what other people want, which has nothing to do with your reality or who you are, even if they are close friends or family...

of course this reflects my values, may not reflect yours...

there's plus sides and negative sides to every life - nobody really has it better than anyone else, even people who are rich and everything seems to work out for them... people that seem to have it all no doubt look at you and feel envious that nobody notices your mistakes and that you're in a position to work yourself up and surprise people, while they can only go down and disappoint people...

perfection is all in your head... i was involved with a gestalt therapy group and people were sharing their most painful memories and one young lady's most traumatic memory was getting a b grade in high school... people could not understand that she was really traumatized by this... our 1 and our 10 of pain is based on what we have experienced, not how bad it looks externally... there's no perfect...
