Nothing will ruin your
twenties more than thinking
you should have your life
Get good grades, go to university, get a degree and a decent paying job, buy a car, get a credit card, have savings, settle down, get married, have children…
So much pressure to get straight into having everything sorted out, no time to enjoy the little things or to just breathe.
No wonder so many people are experiencing anxiety with the amount of stress we are put under. In my hometown of Newcastle, Australia you would have to be a millionaire to own a home as the market is just disgusting. Has been for years now and it is only getting worse. I have no hope of buying a house anywhere near a city or anywhere that was up and coming because I would have to be a drug dealer to even put together a deposit. It costs roughly $700,000 – $900,000 for a house in Newcastle at the moment. I’d have to become a drug dealer to buy a house in my hometown! It’s crazy how expensive it is to live let alone save for a house.
More and more people are being pushed to outback towns where there is very little work.
Who made life so hard? I feel like I have put so much pressure on myself because O don’t have the slightest thing figured out. I am 22 and I am yet to discover who I truly am, so why do I continue to punish myself for not having this, or not having that when in reality we all should just take a second to look around. Everyone is so rushed and stressed out all because they don’t feel like everthing is in order.
What I say to this is “fuck it.”
I dont want to spend this year feeling shit because I don’t have my cards all lined out in order. I want to enjoy each day as they come and be proud of even the tiny steps I take in my journey. I don’t think we all should live that ‘norm lifestyle’ because we are all so different.
