Society has always had this idea of how the future is supposed to go for everyone. Graduate high school, graduate college, get a job, get married, have kids. I always thought this was the best way to go about my life so I never complained. This is how I wanted my life to play out. Well, over the past few years, it's become more normal for people to not really follow this order of things.
I know people who had a baby before they finished high school. I know people who got married right after high school. I know people who never went to college. I know so many people who didn't follow this route to take that has been drilled into our heads since we were children.
Personally, I wanted to go to college. And that's where I am. I graduated from high school and I immediately went to college. I didn't get married and I didn't have a baby.
There's nothing wrong with the path and the order you chose to take on your life, but sometimes I look around and it makes me feel like I'm behind in my life. I feel like I should have more accomplished.
But I'm only 21, and I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be.
I'm in my last full year of college. I'll graduate with a bachelor's degree soon, so I'm not behind. I'm exactly where someone my age would be expected to be.
At my age, I shouldn't have every single detail figured out. That's not how it's supposed to be. I'm not supposed to have my own family and have a degree already. That's so unrealistic to just have everything for the rest of my life already set in stone. I'm still so young.
Like I said, it doesn't matter how we each choose to live our life. We don't have a pattern to follow. I'm a strong believer that all things happen for a reason. If I was supposed to be somewhere else, doing something else, then that's where I'd be.
