Because you keep comparing yourself to other people your age, people who are on different journeys than you are.
Because you spend ages focusing on whatever goes wrong in your life and rarely focus on all the things you have accomplished.
Because you are getting sidetracked by the search for material gains instead of looking for spiritual fulfillment.
Because you haven’t seen any results yet, and it’s making you discouraged — but really, you just have to stay patient and wait a little while longer.
Because you assume everyone else is doing so much better than you based on their social media, even though most of those posts are misleading.
Because you had a plan laid out for yourself and it’s not going according to plan — but nothing in life ever goes according to plan.
Because you’ve been struggling to reach a certain goal for a while now and you’re starting to doubt whether you’ll ever get there (even though you will).
Because you feel stuck in place, like you aren’t going anywhere, like every day is a repeat of yesterday.
Because you’re more focused on the present than the future, and sometimes that feels like a good thing, and sometimes it feels like a scary thing.
Because you were always the smart one growing up, and you feel like you’re wasting your potential simply because your growth has been slower lately.
Because you feel like you have absolutely no idea where you’re heading or what you want when it seems like everyone else has their lives figured out. Spoiler alert: They don’t.
Because you’re feeling pressured to reach certain milestones by a certain age, even though you should be focusing more on your actual experiences than on the length of time it take you to reach them.
