Feeling Left Behind


Feeling Left Behind | Victoria Alice Blogs
Do you know, sometimes I just feel really far behind. 
I mean, every one I know is doing well, has a plan and seems to have their life scheduled out. Compared to me - well I'm a panicky mess when I think about the future!

Take friend number one: she has a really lovely boyfriend who lives with her, a steady job which she enjoys, friends to go out with at the weekend and the most loving family you have ever met. 

Take friend number two: she likes learning. Already has a first from university, but decided to do another course to guarantee a job at the end of it. Crazy, but at least there’s plan there AND she’s going away on holiday in a week or so – just booked it the other day and decided to pop on a plane and travel, (my worst nightmare!) 

Friend number three: she has a house, a husband and a baby on the way… ARE YOU EFFING SERIOUS? Who has a baby before they can drive? Anyway, not my cup of tea, but she is happy, and that is all that matters. 

And then there’s me. 

Don’t get me wrong; it’s not all bad - I have a job that I love, a family who love me, friends I can count on and the kindest, sweetest boyfriend that I could have ever asked for. 

However, when it comes to my position now, I just feel a little behind. I don’t have plans to move out just yet and the long distance relationship situation is really hard. I want to do so many things and start a new adventure, which scares me, but I also think it will do me good, even though for now, we will put them on the back burner.

I know I shouldn’t compare my life to others, but when you see people doing well, moving to exciting places like London, decorating their new place, doing simple things like the food shop and visiting somewhere new for the weekend, it makes me realise that I just want to have a bit of a change and start achieving some of the plans I have in place.

Does anyone else feel left behind sometimes? 
Also, what I really want to know is, when is the right time to move out on your own?! I'm 23 and feel like now might be the right sort of time? 
Let me know :)
