Don’t overcommit yourself to a five things when you’ve only got time for two. As much as you might want to do everything, you can’t and it will ruin you if you try. You need to put your needs first and take care of yourself. After all, you can’t pour out of an empty cup so don’t spread yourself to thin.
I don’t know how to fully love myself. But I don’t know if there’s a final destination with self-love or if it’s something we always have to keep working towards and working on.
Consider this time of your life a great magnifier: it will show you what’s working, and it will show you what’s not.
Being a 20-something is a wild ride.
When I look around at my fellow millennials, I see visionaries, world changers, thrill seekers and people who want to go out there and make this world a better place.
You actually become more social. Living alone means if you want friends, you have to go get them. That means actively texting people to come over for dinner and drinks, or putting yourself out there to get invited to go out somewhere.
You don’t need to follow the standard “rules” of life.
You are expected to do all of those things that mostly contradict each other, to be walking down on many different paths at once, while they are all leading in different directions and they are only rarely crossing each other.
The truth here is being at mid-20’s could definitely be amazing and terrifying at the same time.
Chances are you don’t even know where you want to go on holiday this summer, or what you want to have for dinner tonight, let alone who you want to spend the rest of your life with.
