When in NYC you feel like a different person. It’s also an exciting place to be that makes you feel like a person that does exciting things. There’s so much going on and so many possible things to see that you can constantly feel like you are missing out.
Everyone seems to be doing something or going somewhere that it’s easy to think they are doing something better than you are. These constant comparisons to other people can leave you feeling bad about yourself for no other reason.
