Getting Stuck in your own story

As we pursue any goal in life, it’s easy to listen to the stories of others and see ourselves in our own hero’s journey.  We reflect the experiences of others and their individual timelines onto our own story, which can lead to disillusionment and self-deceit. We see in their story a linear, clear cut path, while it seems like ours is constantly weaving and branching. They’ve made a seemingly excellent set of choices over time which led to success, while we feel like we have a hundred choices each day and have no idea which ones are best. Is it healthy to perceive other’s lives like this?
