You’re not behind in life

As an 25 year old student I get the question: ”do you know what you want to do in life?” a lot. It frustrates me, because how do I know. One day I visualize myself as a writer for a big magazine. The other day I see myself working as a freelancer on Bali living the good life. Every grown up person would say: your twenties are the best time of your life! You will learn to be independent, make friendships who last forever and you will eventually find yourself.
And all of that is true. But your twenties are also the most questionable, scary and uncertain times. A lot of people enter your life and they leave as quickly as they came. In your twenties it is important to be selfish, to completely focus on what you want to create. Time is now, is one of the quotes I often forgot about.
I felt behind because a lot of my friends already finished their studies or they started a family. Often we compare ourselves to others, our lives, we wonder why we don’t have what anybody else has. The grass looks greener on the other side. But everyone has their things they go through. We don’t see other people’s struggles, we tend to only look at other people’s success. Watch your life change when you look at your own success. The steps you took, ignoring your fears and just go for it.
Where you are is exactly where you need to be. Trust the timing of your life. In the past I could beat myself up about things I didn’t do or the things I did. It hold me back and I couldn’t focus on my future. Decide what it is you want and go for it! You have the time, even when this feels different. Don’t beat yourself up, give it another try!
