We are copying the lifestyle of others without understanding our own needs and income. If this does not get curtailed, it will lead to lots of stress and anxiety. Income is not growing at the rate the expenses are growing, resulting in more distress & less peace. Do understand your income and then make expenses according to it rather than looking at the spending of others.
