Adolescence concludes between 18 to 21 years of age. So this is the period (20’s) when one becomes an adult physically and hits a certain level of maturity mentally. This is the period which is also called as old age puberty. By our early twenties we’ve already been experiencing a lot and have already experienced a part of this world. At this stage many people fall into the trap of overconfidence which in turn puts a limitation to your knowledge and slowly builds up your ego than knowledge thus creating an imaginary boundary between oneself and the reality . If you say “I do not know”, the longing to know arises within you which will provoke you to seek due to which the possibility of knowing will exist.
Twenties are something which are the prime of your life. There will never be a better time for you to embrace all that the world has to offer than this age of freedom. Yes, freedom. Forget about the accusations that menials are lazy, unmotivated and lack drive. If you’ve ever doubted yourself, now’s the time to let go of insecurities and uncertainties.
Few things that we need you should keep in mind at this stage are:
Your twenties are the perfect time to find yourself ,if you haven’t already. Take some time to your own and learn about yourself and learn to love yourself.
You have to stand up for yourself. Create the life you want to live and go make it happen or else you’ll only be left with ‘what if’s’. No one cares to hear you complain.
Date someone who is completely wrong for you
Dating is fun! Don’t fear blind dates, or people that don’t fit “your type.” Go out with someone unexpected and see what happens. You could fall in love with that one quality that you never really noticed. You might be surprised at just whom you fall for. Even if you end up turned off and bored with the person, at least you have a funny story to tell. You will get used to being single, just like you get used to being in a relationship.
Do something purely for thrill
Be a thrill seeker; don’t play it safe. The feeling of excitement is fun and enjoyable. Take some risks, and don’t fear the result. Sometimes going out on a limb and diving into a thrill-seeking experience makes for the best memories. You might not get enough and want to do it again. Just remember — depending on the risk you take — everything is best in moderation. If it’s easy or boring you then you are not passionate about it. Stop wasting your time on something that doesn’t fulfill you and challenge yourself with something that does.
Learn to forgive yourself
Forgive is not correlated to forgetting. You try to forget what happened to you and that is where the mistake lies. Always remember the best and the worst and always try to keep it in the former league by forgiving the later.
Your 20’s are definitely not the time to settle. Keep moving; do not slow down for anyone or anything. When you settle down in a certain relationship or way of living, life becomes stagnant and soon enough, less exciting. Keep moving to keep up with the quality of life that you deserve in your 20’s.
Mend the open wounds
Let go of the bullshit in your past. Look at your 20’s as a clean canvas. This is a time to release any negative feelings holding you back from moving forward. Heal any open wounds that remain, and accept that there is sometimes no resolution for certain situations. If there might be a way to mend an open-ended problem, then make the attempt. Do whatever you have to do to feel free of any negative restrictions.
Be a sponge and do not dwell on negatives
Not only are your 20’s a good time to get to know yourself, but also a good time to get to know the people around you. Spend quality time with your friends and acquaintances, take an interest in their lives, listen to their opinions and develop genuine relationships that you will remember forever. Downfalls are inevitable. When the negatives outweigh the positives, don’t dwell on it. Remember that life goes on, and you have never been in a better position to remove yourself from negative situations and to move forward than you are right now in your 20’s.
Live in the moment without fear or expectation of the failure
Above all, live every day of your 20’s to the fullest. Relish the moment and make every day worth living. Do not look ahead to the future with worry or expectation, as you could likely set yourself up for disappointment. Live every day to its greatest potential, as if there will be no tomorrow to make it right. Your parents probably have your best intentions at heart but just because you’re going to do something your own way (not their way) doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
