Life is not a sprint.
Your journey gets to be your own and doesn’t have to look like someone else’s. There’s great value in learning from the experience of others, but don’t allow their progress create shame for your process.
See the beauty that’s already present in your life. The unique characteristics that your story has, allow it to be different from that of anyone else.
Let go of the “I’m behind” mindset and celebrate where you are currently. Let self-awareness and hope guide the pace at which you grow.
