There is no fault which makes a person more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others. I pointed out a moment ago that the more pride one had, the more one disliked pride in others.
It is because I wanted to be the big noise at the party that I am so annoyed at someone else being the big noise. The point is that each person's pride is in competition with every one else's pride. CSLewis

Repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking;
Cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence;
Exercising economy in expenditure, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike trust in God.
And as I cannot in my own strength attain this measure of wisdom and power,
I make humble and firm resolve to seek all these things from my heavenly Father.

A city on a hill cannot be hidden
Neither do people light a lamp & put it under a bowl
Instead they put it on its stand, & it gives light to everyone in the house
In the same way let your light shine before all people
That they may see your good deeds & praise our Father in heaven

What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to.
But friends, that’s exactly who we are: children of God. And that’s only the beginning. Who knows how we’ll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we’ll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own.

We never know whom we marry; we just think we do. Or even if we first marry the right person, just give it a while and he or she will change. For marriage, being [the enormous thing it is] means we are not the same person after we have entered it. The primary challenge of marriage is learning how to love and care for the stranger to whom you find yourself married. (Stanley Hauerwas)

Happiness means nothing other than having lots of stuff, having more stuff than your parents, and having children who will have even more stuff.
It’s not how much you have that brings happiness; it’s
how much you appreciate however much or little you
