At that age

by imissyou

I know I shouldn’t be comparing myself to others, but I feel very unaccomplished for being almost 26 years old.

Most of the people I graduated high school with are in grad school. I’m still working on my BA.
They are also getting married and starting families and all that jazz.
I haven’t dated in 6 years. I tried to download a dating app today, but my phone wasn’t working.

I just feel kind of behind in many ways. I dunno.

Still haven’t moved on from the restraining order situation.

By no means are these terrible problems….more like minor annoyances. How can I stop comparing myself to others my age?

The wise words i can give you, the grass isn’t greener on other side, its greener where you water it. And comparing yourself to other people is an easy way to depression. The most important rule of life people forget is life isn’t fair. There’s always someone doing better or worse than you. Its never too late to try something new, whatever positive events happen in your life, you’re right on time. You could sleep until you’re 30 and feel like you ran out of time. I’m 22 going on 23 and I know the clock is ticking. Its race a against yourself and the world. As crazy as it sounds. You need to move faster than the earth spinning, those 24 hrs in the day get somewhere. After your 8 hour shift at sh!t job, and 6 hours of sleep. You only have 6-7 hours to work on your dreams.

I’m older than you and never done any higher education. The only “dating” I’ve done is an absolute joke and I have almost no money at all right now. I don’t know if it helps but you’re already miles ahead of this loser at least, and plenty others too. 26 is still pretty young. Not to say you have all the time in the world but you’re hardly behind.
