I think your twenties is a time you feel so lost because you’re comparing yourself to everything your friends and other people your age are doing. You’re watching everything they do & thinking to yourself, “I’m not doing enough.” “They have their life together and I don’t have a clue.” But in reality they don’t really know what their doing either. More than likely they’re looking at you thinking the same thing.
I’m terrible for comparing myself to other people. I compare myself to my friends all the time and I catch myself and I have to tell myself to stop. It’s not good for my mental health. It makes me feel useless and then I get into a rut and I don’t have the enegry to do anything. My bad mood projects itself into my life and I turn into a horrible person to be around.
Being a young adult is hard. No joke, you’re having your quarter life crisis and you really have no idea what’s going on! What’s tax? No, I don’t want to make my own doctors appointments! How do I use the washing machine? Yeah I can cook… pasta…
You spend years with people your own age, going through school together. Junior and leaving certs are all done together and suddenly you’re not with these people any more and they’re off doing stuff and you feel shit and you’re thinking that you’re failing if you’re not doing what their doing.
This happens to everyone. The older I get the more I realise that I’m not the only one who doesn’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going. We are all just winging it and telling ourselves “It’ll be grand!”
