Strings are subpar, they need more automation and control over volume you can easily tell they're fake. The drums are way too loud in respect to everything else in the song, and yet the vocal "breaths" are actually louder overshadowing the drums. The snare is way too sharp, take it down a bit, Go hard and too hard have a difference. Most of the problems in this song are the mixing. I don't know if you're using headphones or speakers, but get better of whichever because they are obviously not giving you a good read of the volume of your tracks. The drums kind of awkwardly slapping around, so maybe fix that rhythm a bit, and also there is some heavy distortion that you can tell isn't supposed to be there, so learn to use a limiter, and if you are, change the settings appropriately.

TL;DR Take some time to listen, and I mean really listen, to somebody you'd consider is better than you at what you are doing, listen to how they mix their song, learn from those who are already experienced.
