What worked for someone else will not necessarily work for you. Accept your path for what it is. Learn from every situation, even missed opportunities (no matter how hard it may be to face that), but dont lose yourself in hurting for not being like someone else. We each have a destiny. We will cross path with others and these are growth occasions. Do not get so stuck on the “why cant i”, and the “how can he/she”, and the “why not me”. These are blockers and oh so tempting!
We are boats floating on the open sea that is called Life. Winds and rains and unexpected matters, both big and small, will push us in different directions. In order to survive the storm, you cannot focus on copying another. You will drown. In order to survive, you need to learn from all, yet still know what your own boat is all about, what lessons to apply and what will enable you to face your own winds and challenges. You are You. Stop trying to act like everyone else.
