When we’re feeling unsatisfied with our lives, our first inclination is to compare where we’re at to where everyone else is. We wonder if we’re too far behind or too far ahead.

We place judgment on the choices we’ve made and fixate on what we “should have done instead”.

We worry about what everyone else must be thinking of us. And we question whether who we are and what we’re doing is enough. Ultimately, however, making comparisons doesn’t help us to feel fulfilled.

If anything, it makes us feel more inadequate and unsure of ourselves. The reality we often forget is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. Your path isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad.

It’s just different. And it’s that differentness that makes you who you are and adds to the beauty and diversity of life. It’s important to remember that life isn’t a race. There’s no such thing as falling behind because there’s no set destination.

Everyone travels at their own pace. Where you’re at and the rate at which you’re progressing is not something that can be compared. Your journey isn’t mean to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a life all your own. So stop comparing, and start living. You may not have ended up where you intended to go. But trust, for once, that you have ended up where you needed to be. Trust that you are in the right place at the right time. Trust that nothing is missing. Trust that your life is enough. Trust that you are enough.

‘’I was born a girl, told to live my life for others. Be a good daughter and obey, an excellent student. Get married at 25 become a perfect wife, but in fact, life isn’t an exam, there are no model answers. I Believe in following my heart, my life will be beautiful.’’

‘’If I choose to move to a big city and climb up the career ladder. If I am asking for stress and pressure, for me it’s worth it because the fruit of my labour tastes even sweeter.’’

‘’If I choose to stay in my hometown others call me unambitious. But I believe there’s nothing bigger than being happy together with my family.’’

‘’Choosing a stable job from 9 to 5 is ordinary? I have extraordinary missions after 5pm.‘’

‘’They are saying choosing to travel the world is fooling around. But the future I am going to create is out of the box.’’

‘’30 years old and still single. Everyone says I am causing my parents worry. Hey! It’s because I choose not to add to their worries. That’s why I’m waiting for Mr. Right.‘’

‘’There’s no right or wrong in any choice, strength from within makes you shine in a more beautiful way. Let’s praise women with inner strength.‘’
