How to handle feelings of inadequacies ?

How do I diminish my feelings of envy ? At work. I'm surrounded with married folks gushing about their new born babies, their super-awesome wife or husband (I am single by the way). Online, my facebook/twitter friends promotes their fast-paced lifestyle, the gadgets they've acquired, their overseas travels, the concerts they're attending & generally all of them have way more facebook friends or twitter followers than me.

Sometimes I feel like retreating into my room, not go online (unless necessary) as I don't need to be reminded everyday of my inadequacy compared to everyone else. Are there words of wisdoms (books or personal rule of thumbs) that can inform me of how to handle my own feelings of inadequacies ?
