Use the right measure for all things.
Measure joy and love by the warmth that fills your heart. Measure people by their intentions and their heart. Measure love by how much of it you can give. Measure success by your contentment. Measure your job by the comforts it provides for you, such as a warm house and a full belly.
Stop using your bank account, or a comparison to someone else's finances, as a measure. Money? It's really no measure at all.
