Any advice about being behind in life? ?

I took a lot longer to graduate from university than expected and now I've been struggling to find a job for months. I feel really behind in life. Not just professionally, but financially and relationship-wise too. I just got out of a 3-year relationship and it's been really hard. I don't want to date anyone just yet but somehow 95% of my friends have gotten into these long-term relationships out of nowhere and they are all moving in with their S/O's and whatnot. And they all have jobs and/or in grad school. I'm terrified of being 'that loser friend'. How do I change my life around?


or any advice? I'm feeling super down about myself recently. I feel like I don't have it in me to work hard these days.

    It's not a contest,  just move at your own pace.

    Take one thing at a time.  You need to keep working hard to find a job first.  Just know that I took at least a half dozen jobs in my life that I felt were beneath my abilities and education.
