I am 25. I constantly keep comparing my life with that of my peers. Most of them have moved abroad and some who stayed have gained good career progression. Perhaps if I had chosen to move abroad I would be in a better position today.
After graduation I worked for a year in IT, then freelanced for a year, then enrolled in a post grad program in management specializing in finance. I am an associate business analyst, but I keep asking myself why I chose to stay and do a two year course instead of moving abroad. I keep thinking about the pay: in India for the role of BA, people are paid at around $10k per year but in first world countries it's around >$45k. I know the cost of living is less in India than in first world countries, but still I keep thinking I should have moved. There are other issues as well like pollution, population, etc.
How do I stop constantly comparing and focus on my job right now?
