I have a custom module where I have added some custom links in the customer's account. The custom page in the customer account's links redirects to a new page on clicking a particular link. I have also created the new page, but the issue is that the new page is not a part of the customer account page anymore but instead is a completely new page in Magento frontend.

I have added the link as,

in layout/customer_account.xml

        <referenceBlock name="customer_account_navigation">
        <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current" name="customer-account-navigation-my-quotes-link" after="-">
                <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">path/to/link</argument>
                <argument name="label" xsi:type="string">My link</argument>

My layout file,

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page layout = "1column" xmlns:xsi = "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation = "urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
<update handle="customer_account"/>
    <referenceBlock name="page.main.title">
        <action method="setPageTitle">
            <argument translate="true" name="title" xsi:type="string">My Title</argument>
    <referenceContainer name = "content">
        <block class = "Path\To\Block\Class" name = "name" template = "Vendor_Module::my.phtml" cacheable="false"/>
        <block class = "Path\To\Second\Block\Class" name = "name1" template = "Vendor_Module::second.phtml"/>

So as above, when we click on "My link", it displays a custom page that directs to a new custom page. However, in the new page, there are no customer account's links. How can I achieve this? Please help.

I have referred these links: Magento 2 Custom Customer Account Link Created but that related phtml is coming with out navigeation links on left side?

Dashboard links not showing my Custom Form in Magento 2

But they don't seem to work for me.
