When I was younger, I always envisioned my life in particular stages and milestones and was disappointed if by a certain age I wasn’t where I thought I should be which was influenced in part by naively being influenced by societies standards or social norms. As I grew up and matured, I realised no one’s path is the same and we also don’t know what someone who appears to have got things ‘easy’ has actually done behind the scenes to get there, even if we think we have struggled more.
Accept each part of your struggle on your way to your goals. Don’t compare where you are in your life to what everyone else is doing around you unless it pushes you to be a better version of yourself.
Change your mindset and you change your attitude towards experience/life events and your present.
