This was a FB Post I made a while ago but I think still really important and worth posting up somewhere more permanent:
That whole concept of being jealous of others is bullshit because you’re comparing your negatives to someone else’s perceived positives which is totally imbalanced in the first place because they have their own shit too as they’re humans and if you looked at the fuller picture you’d probably feel a lot better about yourself anyway. Also a lot of my friends in their 20’s have been freaking out about their lives recently – don’t worry about it you’re in your 20’s (or if you’re younger this applies too) this is your time to be young and have fun and experience things. You have the whole rest of your life to have strong concern about earning significant money and worry about shit. I know it’s super hard but maybe try to stop, and think about the fact that you live in this beyond amazing country, and you have your health (hopefully) which is more than many, and if you wanted to you could go buy sushi on the weekend and sit in the park and read like you’re fucking royalty. Seriously, life’s too short to spend it worrying non-stop about the future because there’s so many variables you don’t know about and you’re better off just enjoying the now because that’s the thing you’ll end up regretting later.
Just be happy to be yourself
