Don't if I'm achieving enough for my ageWatch
There are days when I feel confident about myself but other times I just stop and start comparing myself to people. I just get down all the time about it when I do compare myself to people. I was talking to my uncle and he told me that he did move out till he was in his 30s so that kind of made me feel better but than my auntie moved out at 19, my parents also moved out and got married when my mum was 17. I think I do well compared to my friends because some of them haven’t had a single driving lesson but I have and I’m pretty much on the way to passing my test. It’s just I still get down about if I’m doing alright or not it happens quite often like now I’m going through that phrase.
I’m older than you and don’t have a car and live at home. Am I concerned? No. Because I’m doing what’s right for me. Everyone progresses through life differently.
I’m going to college and staying at home for two years after my A Levels to do art, so I’ll be moving out and going to university when I’m nearly 21! I wouldn’t worry so much about it: nobody will you expect you to get your dream career in your 20s
It might not seem like it for you, but it’s not very common to have children before you’re 20!
I compared myself to others and thought, why haven't I achieved something like them yet?
I thought I was behind them.
Although only 2 of my 10 friends were successful, I did not want to compare myself with the other 8 friends, but only with the best ones.
It seemed to me that they had a wonderful life, but I did not.
But then I found out that they work so hard because they never had any support from their parents, that they are unhappy in a relationship, that they have a lot of problems.
And since then I have stopped comparing myself to others.
I believe that everything has its time.
So do you. You will get a great job, buy a house, a car, but when your time comes. Don't demand too much from yourself.
Everyone progresses at their own speed.
The only real question you should be asking yourself is - are you happy?
And if not the what can you do to make yourself happy.
