Eeeeeeeeeeeee as my baby sis  so often says

Singer: REM

For full lyrics Click Here.

So you have undergone trauma, and have not got what you want out of life. And then there is this person, it can be anybody your friend, neighbor, a family member or maybe your own sibling who you begin to envy because they seem to have everything you would want to have in your life. So are you the only one hurting. Think again, Like the song so rightly says “Everybody Hurts and Everybody Cries” maybe for different things but they do hurt. they are not more blessed than you, everyone is equally blessed.
