Would You Rather Be Someone Else Than Yourself?

I used to think about this when I was younger or immature. You look at other people and you think they have a sweet life. It would be fun to be them, I thought. But as the years go by, and pretty much I had a good view of life or a little perhaps, I look closely at the lives of other people and knew them, I finally realized it's not easy to be them either. In fact, it's easier to me. I wouldn't even trade the life that I have right now or it would be appropriate to say, I wouldn't trade MYSELF, although not all my dreams had materialize yet and it's not easy most of the time. Have you had this thought? did ever want to be in someone else's shoe?

When I was a kid, or when I was in my teens, I used to want to be someone else. I used to want to be someone famous. But now, I like being me. I enjoy it. I have my share of problems, but who doesn't? I look at my life, and I can't really complain. Some people have much worst problems and stuff than I do. And when I think of it, I realize that I have good life and that I like being myself.

i wouldn't rather be anyone else then myself but if i had to be someone else i would want to be someone that was famous. it would just be cool to see how there everyday life is being followed by paparazzi and being able to afford anything you want. but i really don't want to be anyone else i like being myself and i like the way i live my life so i don't think id want to be anyone else.

It is something i also thought at childhood. surrounding me, i used to see how few people are just lucky and wanted to have a life like them. but later realised its not possible. i will have my own fate
