Don’t try to compare yourself with anybody. Some families have travelled abroad for summer with money that is enough to build a house of their own. How can you be using four cars while living in a rented house? Your car is even more expensive than your landlord’s; that is why he increases the rent every year.

For every marriage that must make progress; you must be willing to change. Once you are willing to change, your marriage is bound to be peaceful and make progress.

Change is the only way to make progress; if you don’t change, you will remain in chains. Change is the proof that you are growing; if you are not changing, you are not growing.
God bless you
