I am 18 and I want to be a physicist but I feel sad and depressed when I look at genius child prodigies that are way younger and miles ahead of me. What do I do?

Some people are more "gifted" than us. It is good to appreciate them with our full heart. In this way, they will feel happy and we will feel happy because we are not jealous anymore. Jealousy is the ONLY cause for unhappiness. If we are not jealous, we will always be happy. But, it is really really really hard to not be jealous. I have been trying for a few years, but still find it very hard. Hopefully, one day I will be able to feel the happiness of non-jealous life.
