My dear friend, you speak the truth. Even with this great job I have got, it I sometimes feel exactly the same way you have expressed.
There is always someone out there we feel is doing better than we currently are.
But like you said, no matter what point in life you are at the moment, just keep growing, keep getting better, keep pushing. Above all remember, you are only in competition with yourself.
We’ll all get to that point of self actualization as long as we keep moving.
Nice piece dear.
