Feeling like I'm not doing enough with my life

I feel like everyone around me on social media has so much going on in their life, and all I really do is study, chill with my friends and run. There's not really much else to me.

I feel like I should be starting a YouTube channel or starting a side hustle or playing an instrument but I just don't know where to start with any of it and I don't know what I'm passionate about yet?

I feel like since lockdown started my life's been very stagnant and I haven't really developed at all personally. I am focusing on doing well in A-Levels as I am in year 13 and need AAA as I'm doing medicine next year.

Does anyone else feel this sense of guilt for not doing much with their life and if so, any advice?

Well I’m in a similar position, all I’ve really done is study in the last year and I’ve reached the conclusion even if it feels like a wasted year what else would I have done. We’re on track to get onto our dream uni courses and hopefully life will start getting better from there. Spending time with family has given me my sense of purpose back as well as looking forward to the future. Basically just keep going as in September/ October we’ll go to university and I can’t think of something better than medicine to give you back a sense of purpose.
