This is a   24   trend.I've felt the warm glow (喜悦) of knowing I earned   25   than somebody,and the grey   26   of knowing that I earned less than another.
It seems as though self­worth is increasingly being   27   the careers we choose and the money we earn.We need to stop   28   so much value on what people earn and what they do.Don't get me wrong—keeping ambitious is not a(n)   29  ,and achievements should always be   30   instead of being underestimated (低估).But when a person uses their success to judge you   31  ,it becomes a problem.
We need to stop thinking that somebody is worth admiring if they're rich but   32   other people's benefits on their way to success.We need to   33   that being an honest and fair person is not a sign of weakness but a positive and    34   personality.
Here's a(n)   35   if you want to know what you're really worth: It has   36   to do with your bank account.It's    37   about how many times you've been there for your friends and how many times you've been kind to a   38  .It's every time you do something   39   or treat someone with respect no matter   40   they are in their own life.
