I’m scrolling on my Instagram feed (@kimarodri), I stumbled upon this post which hit me up. Maybe because right now, I am having a hard time finding myself, and it usually happens to everyone.
Honestly, I’m 26 years of age and still here living with my parents. Most of the time, I was thinking about the future that I dreamed of. Why am I only here? No significant achievements yet, no house, no car, and no love life.
Whenever I saw some post of other people on social media flexing their achievements, activities, career, or relationship status, I feel sad and insecure.
But then I realized that I should learn to appreciate what I have been working on now and then. I should learn to appreciate what God gave me because I’m still lucky to have my degree, job, family with me, friends, and myself.
I was so affected by other people’s achievements because I keep comparing my shoe to them, yet I didn’t realize that we have our chapters, our journey, and our own lives. It doesn’t mean that we’re all in the same boat because we have different trips and challenges based on our experiences.
In that way, I should learn to love myself more, focus on where I’m good at and do my best to excel and succeed. It is a matter of time and phases. Also, instead of feeling sad and insecure about others, I should learn how to appreciate their journey and achievements because they work hard for it.
I believe this isn’t my time, yet it doesn’t mean that I can’t do more. I will do my very best to achieve all of my dreams for myself and my family
