Are you living in a "what if" world?
Do you put things off until "if only"...?
Do you envy other people based on their social media posts?
Your world is what you make of it. I know that sounds trite. "I can't help that I ... [was in a bad accident / was abused as a child / have a disease / never met my father]" You cannot help your past.
That's true, but you can change your future.
You can make the most of your present.
First, don't compare yourself to others. People typically post the good on their social media. My husband is HUGE on all of his social media outlets, and never posts anything bad (except about the pollution here, maybe). He posts jokes, shares pictures of beautiful or exotic places we visit, and praises his students or even his own self. People envy him. Why? Life's too short to waste on envy.
Use another person's positive experience to motivate you, if anything, but don't pin yourself to it.
"If only I had a better job, we could... "
"If only we lived somewhere else, we could ..."
Really? How about getting out into your community, into the geographic area, to explore. Find what's there, try the cool stuff, avoid that which doesn't interest you, and do something!
EVERYWHERE is interesting. Decide to make your own happiness. What turns you on?
