I try to remember other people are no better than me, sometimes you get down in the dumps for many reasons, comparing yourself to others in all aspects of life.
The worst thing you can do is try to be like everyone or anyone else.

I'm going to butcher some Buddhist philosophy here, but basically they say something like "to live is to desire, to desire is to suffer" basically that message.

So when you have low self esteem it is because you have raised others up above yourself, then you desire to become like the image of them you have created in your mind. And it is that desire to achieve this fantasy goal that makes you suffer, the suffering being low self esteem.

Just remember, you are no worse than anybody and you are no better than anybody, and that goes for everyone, whether they admit it or not. We are all equal in this world.
