23 Things I Learnt In My Twenties

It can be very difficult going through your twenties because you are becoming a young adult. It involves figuring out your likes and dislikes and navigating through the world with your identity. This can often result in mistakes. However, I realise not everyone’s twenties can be this way. Although, I must confess that mine are full of mistakes. I wish I could lie to you and say that I wouldn’t change it for the world because it has made me who I am. Yet, the truth is that I would totally change it.  I would totally change the past but I cannot because it has already been written as a part of my history.  Upon this reflection here are twenty three things I have learnt in my twenties.

  1. I cannot change the past but I can manage the effects. 
  2. Death doesn’t discriminate by age
  3. Love begins with accepting yourself
  4. Have a passion, hobby or interest- these are very important.
  5. Avoid situations that can haunt or hurt you in the future
  6. Your health comes first.
  7. Work hard in everything as you do not know what each opportunity may bring.
  8. Family is everything. 
  9. You are your own role model everyone else is inspiration. 
  10. Maintain healthy relationships.
  11. Appreciate everything you have. 
  12. Learn and try new things. 
  13. Step out of your comfort zone. 
  14. Your happiness starts with you and is dependent on you. 
  15. There are people out there whose sole ambition is to tear people down.
  16. Always try to maintain professionalism at work.
  17. Not everyone’s life is as perfect as it seems on social media.
  18. Nice people do not finish last. 
  19. Smiling isn’t a sign of weakness and a frown is not a signal to be feared.
  20. Making mistakes are important but learning from them are just as important.
  21. Age is not always wisdom. 
  22. Having a faith, belief system or values are important. 
  23. Be the best version of yourself, always.
