    Realise that everyone is different. We all have strengths and weaknesses, be they visible or not - no one is flawless. Comparing yourself to other people is hopeless because at the end of the day you don't know what they've got going on in their own lives - the grass is seldom greener on the other side...perhaps in some places, but not overall for the most part.

    You are a gift to the world. Nothing would be the same without you here, no matter which way you slice it. You have strengths and passions and things you're good at - life isn't you vs anyone else, it's you vs you. You can only become your best self...what other people have going on in their lives is out of your control.

    You got this.

    The key is to not give a FAWK about other people and live your own life. You’re different to everyone. You’re here to live your own life. You weren’t brought into this planet to please others. Do what you enjoy and love and remember that no two people are the same.
