“You think you're falling behind because you didn't get the job you want. You feel insecure because your friends are leveling up. You blame yourself because you course the wrong course in college. You wish your parents were wealthy so they could provide you a better life. You ask what's wrong with you for having failed relationships. You self-pity for not getting the things you deserve. Remember, don't be too hard on yourself. Sometimes, we compare ourselves to others so much that we overlook our own achievements. No matter how small or big they are, focus on them and be proud. Don't be embarrassed about your failures. Instead, embrace and learn from them. You own the future!”
