I can imagine it feels pretty unsettling to feel this way, puttersmom, but I've found that as I've gotten older, so many of these old concerns lose their importance. There will always be people who are better golfers, weigh a little more, and have more money, but everything in life is so relative. Try to resist the urge to compare yourself with your friends as much as you can, becoming more conscious of these feelings as you notice them arise. At some point during your day, mentally tally up all your assets and strong points and features, and then, remember to stay mindful of them. You'll find yourself feeling better and better about yourself if you make this a regular practice. It sounds to me like you're overly critical of yourself and need to acknowledge your positive traits more.
