A life in your twenties: When everything is a mess

Being in your twenties is all about redefining and reshaping who you thought you would be in when you were a teen, or the idea you had of what you’d be doing “when you grew up”. Most of us we’re told to make a five or ten-year plan of who we wanted to be, how we wanted to get there.

I am sure most of you didn’t even calculate the struggles, the challenges, bumps and twists you would have to go through. Especially including that plan would take a completely new direction. Which of course then makes you the person you are today. Makes you realize that not everything is as it seems and not everything is as bad as you thought it would be, right?

But it is scary. Oh it is.

Since we are in high school, they tell us “this is the real hard, work getting into college”. When you get into college they tell you “getting ready for the real world is the hardest thing you’re ever going to have to do”. Then, in your early twenties,  you are really thrown into the real world…it all gets complicated!

Everything gets expensive, everything gets weird, you have to learn how to reshape your friendships with your co-workers, your family; your roommates, flatmates or with anybody else you know because your parents are not there to tell you what’s right or wrong and your professors are not there to tell to do things a certain way.

What’s next?

You are really on your own! How to deal? 

First of all, be patient. It’s not about being frightened but instead, of being FASCINATED with the amount of freedom you are getting! Isn’t this what you wanted to do when you grew up?

There are so many thing you can do: travel, start your own business, get a scholarship and pursue even more studies, commit to a social project, Work & Travel somewhere in the world The possibilities ARE truly endless.
