Wish for the best in yourself and others

Don't remember the exact language, but Rabbainu said that it's a very high level, and a very good sign, if a person rejoices in seeing other people succeeding and rising in their service of God and the ways of holiness, even though the person himself is in a deep rut.

Likewise, even if a person is C"V suffering great descent in his holiness, he should keep wishing to see true holiness, and should keep praying for this. Even if a person has fallen very low he should not C"V speak of his sins and lowliness to other people, just to the Holy Merciful One God and His true tzadikim. This is what King David said in Psalms, one of the ten of the Tikun Klali, "ashrei ... Kissuy chattuh", fortunate is he who conceals his sins (Talmud Tractate Yuma page 86: discusses when and which sins should be revealed). A person should only verbalize holy desires, this creates holy souls, and C"V a person should never verbalize bad thoughts or longings for physical trappings of this world.
