You have to live your life on your terms, the way you want. What society tells us we should be doing, our comparisons to those around us will leave us miserable. We can't try to live the life we see other people living. We don't even know anything about them beyond what they allow us to see. Be who you want to be. Mold your life.
Try to remember who you were, what you liked, what made you happy and at peace before someone told you who you should be, what you should like, and what should bring you happiness. You make the rules. Follow your intuition and feelings. You don't need anyone's opinion. No one knows you better than you know yourself. No one can know exactly how you are feeling. Learn from yourself, from your own experiences.
Trust the process. Yours will be different from theirs. Measure your progress with your own ruler, not the one they gave you. Give yourself permission to move at your own pace. Have the same patience with yourself that you so willingly give to others. Connect your own dots.
Your soul knows the way to your peace.
