Think of all the families who are desperately trying to find sub $300 homes, scraping by while saving for the down payment. Hardworking families that were displaced by gentrification and the insane rents and that can never even dream of owning a house in their own hometown. Maybe volunteer somewhere, it'll give you some much-needed perspective, and you will stop feeling so horrible about this wait until you can find your ideal home.

I think they already bought the house....

Hi - ask your agent to do a search for homes that have been on the market for more than 12 days. Sometimes there is nothing "wrong" with the house, but it was started at too high a price. Getting at or over 100% starts to drop off around 9 days, and almost nothing gets full price when it is over 15 days. The feeding frenzy is over, and you can make an offer based on what you actually want to pay.
Hope this helps.
