What are your thoughts?

Maaaan I can relate to this, though I'm not exactly a fresh grad haha.

When I graduated a few years back, I felt like a small person in an adult body with everything suddenly thrown to me. It was incredibly intimidating, like we were suddenly forced to grow up and make 'responsible adult decisions'.

Whenever I felt like I wasn't handling my life well, I would physically jot down things that I feel I have been improving at, and the things I'm thankful for. In a society which celebrates efficiency and speed, it's easy to forget how far we've come (the littlest achievements count as well!) because we're so busy focusing on the next task to complete.

I'm sure you've achieved more than you credit yourself for, you deserve to celebrate every little ounce of personal milestones and success :-) pats back

You need to ask yourself calmly why you think like that. Write down the things which you feel are lacking. "Everything" is not a good answer. You need to be specific so that you can tackle things one-by-one or in groups.

If it's about comparing with other people, try to not think about it and focus on how you can bring more value. Comparing with other people does nothing, literally, unless you want to be motivated while working towards getting to the same position. Even then, I feel the most motivation when I just want to better myself.
