We are all at different stages of our lives - every minute (second) of every day.
Just because you haven't had what someone else had by this stage in their life doesn't make it wrong and most importantly, it doesn't make you weak. I'm quite relieved that I didn't have to go through everything that Harry Potter did by the time I was eighteen. I know you're saying 'He's a literary character' but you know what I mean.
Wishing your life away until you have what someone else has got is not good for you.
It's not good for your health. We all get handed different opportunities and some we seize and some we don't. This can be for many reasons ie. the timing's not right etc. But there's a reason for it. Heck, no one knows what it is. In later life it may become apparent why in later life and if it does hopefully it will be worth it. So don't you want to wait for those days? Aren't they worth it? To hopefully come to a day when everything makes sense?
It's YOUR time so do whatever you have to to be happy, don't live in someone's shadow. The time to stop hiding is NOW!
