How to stop Feeling overwhelmed when everyone around you are getting better jobs?

It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed when you see others around you achieving success, especially if you're working hard and not seeing the same level of progress. However, it's important to remember that everyone's path is different and it's not productive to compare yourself to others. Instead, try to focus on your own goals and what you can do to work towards them. Here are a few things that might help:

  1. Set small, achievable goals for yourself. This can help you feel a sense of accomplishment and progress, which can boost your confidence and motivation.

  2. Practice self-care. Make sure to take breaks, get enough sleep, and engage in activities that help you relax and recharge.

  3. Seek support. Talk to a friend, family member, or therapist about how you're feeling. Sometimes just having someone to listen and offer guidance can make a big difference.

  4. Remember that success is not a straight line. There will be ups and downs in any career, and it's important to stay resilient and keep trying.

  5. Find ways to stay motivated and engaged in your work. This might involve learning new skills, networking, or finding ways to make your job more enjoyable.

Remember, it's okay to feel overwhelmed at times, but it's important to take care of yourself and keep working towards your goals.
