I feel like I'm not. I'm not blessed with great looks or an amazing personality, I'm just me. Whereas if you look at some other people, despite the little problems everyone experiences, their life is just much better.
From the time they were born to now, they were happier and they've had more opportunities. They're blessed.
What is your experience with this? Or do you feel that we can all be just as happy as the biggest most beautiful celebrity out there?

Obviously there's people who start better off in life than others. And some truly are luckier than others in every aspect. The same as some truly are unlucky in all aspects, born in a warzone, living day to day on scraps etc...
So yes there are blatant and absolutely humungous inequalities, and life isn't fair.
But I do think almost everyone is blessed in a way.
There's those who've obtained everything through luck and destiny. Great looks, great upbringing, money, you name it. And they might well be happy. But they won't ever have the same experience as someone who had to overcome and persevere to get to where they are.
If you haven't been blessed with the circumstances that give you an amazing personality from the get go, then you've been blessed with the dream and ambition of changing it. Of moulding your own identity to it's ideal form. You've been blessed with the opportunity to take it beyond what any natural gift or talent can produce.
From struggle comes rock solid strength. And you'll not only be able to enjoy your various enhanced traits better if you've struggled for them, but you'll also feel a lot better about having them, because it's something you built. It's not nature given, it's not random luck. It's something you made out of yourself. And I think that's a lot more rewarding in the end than just being born with amazing looks or a pile of money in your pocket.1
