“I was struggling to establish and [to] follow”

I am learning English. I found this sentence in a book.

At the time, I was struggling to establish myself as a writer and to follow my path…

Is it grammatically correct to use the to-infinitive and.

Answer

That’s a correct usage.

What you’re doing is omitting the part [I was struggling] from the sentence:

At the time, I was struggling to establish myself as a writer and
[I was struggling] to follow my path….

Since repetition would be redundant there, it’s supposed to be omitted.
