There is nothing that I agree with more than this statement. When you are in your 20s it IS about YOU. There are people out there that don’t understand and all you can do is feel sorry for them. We as humans are so reliant on others trying to make us happy when in fact we are the only ones that can make ourselves happy. Try and find it, I promise it’s inside you somewhere.
This year consisted of me growing up so much. I grew up so fast and so hard. It was a lot to handle and to get a grasp of. I know now that I am a full fledged adult now. I actually make my bed. I pay for my family’s meals. I have full responsibility of my cat. It was the weirdest transition that I could ever go through. It was the best thing that could have happened. I try to thank God every day for the person who I am. Slowly, I am falling back in love with myself.
I have always known that I am a good person. Others have certainly told me different. If only they know what I have to go through and still keep my head held high and my hopes higher. Smile on my face, it’s what keeps me going. Smiling is such an easy thing to do. Most people just need to try it once in a while, it really improves your attitude, along with making you more attractive of a person.
The people you surround yourself with honestly has a major effect on the person you become. You can evolve into anything and anyone you want to be. Mind power is such a great thing.
Becoming older and independent is such a blessing. When growing up you win a lot, but have a high chance you lose a lot also. Your head becomes filled up with so many “remember when”s and “I wish I could still”s. When one door closes another one opens. Don’t forget about that. Everything has a purpose. It may be hard now, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Go out on a limb, it’s where all the fruit is. You would rather live a life of “oh well”s rather than “what if”s, right?
