If you’ve got trendy millennials in your friendship arsenal, read this.
Be selfish about your current job. Take advantage of your skills and assets, and quit the job that is making you miserable. Do not stay out of comfort or just because you think it’s the right thing for you to do. Be selfish in what job you apply for and what jobs you accept.
Be the kind of girl that compliments herself when she walks past a mirror instead of finding minuscule reasons to criticize. That has silenced that hateful voice inside of her and replaced it with a loving one. That knows her inner value, her intrinsic worth.
Growth is uncomfortable, it is not easy, but avoiding it is detrimental. If it hurts, it matters.
Age 24: “Young hearts, out our minds, Runnin’ till we outta time, Wild childs, lookin’ good, Livin’ hard just like we should.”
Your 20’s are about failing, dusting yourself off, and trying all over again. They are about losing people along the way, and gaining new people in your life. They are about learning how to navigate yourself along the uneven pavement sometimes by yourself, and sometimes with the help of your friends.
For the age of 28, you will have a major crisis and nervous breakdown about feeling like you’re incredibly behind in everything. All your friends are engaged or married or they have children. And all you want to do is be like them. But you’re wired differently.
Your 20s are for choosing self-love over yesterday, today, and tomorrow’s almost love.
You don’t need to justify your choices or decisions to anyone. If you want to do something, do it. If you fail that’s great, at least you tried to go after something you want, unlike everyone else who is still sitting on their parents couch.
Never stop challenging yourself.
