Your speed doesn’t matter. Forward is forward.
Everyone has a different path to walk on and a different speed (which can even vary from time to time).
For example at this moment it's important to me to travel, to have new experiences, see new places, meet new personalities and perspectives,
This helps me to become a better human, to be more humble, to question my beliefs and don't go with everything my society and culture is prescribing me. It helps me as well to face my fears, and be more aware of (inner) patterns.
As a future psychotherapist it's, in my opinion, important for me that I work with them as much as possible before stepping into that working field.
But, if you have , want to buy a own house/apartment, are fully inspired and committed to your current job, or heaps of other things, I can imagine that at this moment, a travelling life or a life away from your home country is not the best support for your goals. And while life over here is beautiful and looks maybe amazing, be sure that it has it downsides as well. And the goals mentioned before, are goals (most of them) I can not really work on now.
So who's life is 'better'? We can absolutely not compare our lives with others. We have a different past, different context- and environmental factors, different recourses, different coping mechanisms and personalities, and still, is a lot of our society build on comparing ourselves with and judging others. •
