For me I lived my childhood on a plateaux then kept falling all throughout my teens and early adulthood then for the past 10 years it's been all struggle. I'm desperately trying to get back to the plateaux level which is what I need to feel normal.

When I see colleagues at work who were born in a difficult place and now they have the same job as me, I feel bad because they've never been happier but I'm having the worst time of my life.

At the same time, I find that people who come from a difficult place tend to have their own distinct type of mental scars.
