Do you find yourself overthinking? When you can’t help but compulsively worry over potential future outcomes or burdens building up from the past, it can feel like you’re carrying a heavy weight on your shoulders because you’re unable to be living in the present moment you are in.

How to be happy for others can be difficult when we have not removed our character defect of jealousy and envy.
