I struggled so much with comparison and can relate so much to your story. I also had dreams of securing an amazing, high-paying job and moving to NYC or London!
It was difficult to get over the envy I felt when I saw others living my dream life. What helped was doing a lot of inner work and accepting that we are all on different paths.
Eventually, I also realized that my dream life wasn’t actually what I wanted and have come to love my more simple, relaxed lifestyle!
