There always seem to be someone doing better than you
In my case, so many people.
Someone plays a musical instrument, software engineer with high TC at FAMG, looks hot, does theatre, has a gf/bf.
So many times I find people online my old classmate, or friends friend, who seem like they have achieved so much in their life at my age. Everything looks sorted in their life. While all I do is go to office come back and sit on bed watch random stuff on YouTube and go to sleep and repeat.
I try to copy what they do bought a ukulele just so I pick up some hobby, not very interested to go to gym, not in good shape, broke up with gf 10 months back after she was cheating on me, write some tech stuff online. One day I wish to do something on my own.
But, how do you guys achieve so much ? Or be successful ? How to not be just every other average software engineer ? Does getting a higher TC give satisfaction and sense of achievement ? Is that what I am missing here ?
