Being in your 20s is a weird time. Everyone is in a different place in their life.
Some people are single. Some are in relationships, while some are single. Some are even married and have children. Everyone is at a different spot in their life during their 20s which makes it weird for young people who have friends in such different stages then them.
For myself and other single 22-year-olds, we are still so young. I think many times we look around to see what our peers are doing with their lives and wondering if we should be doing what they are doing or even being jealous.
Although I am not old, I have started a new job where I am living my dream. I don't have a boyfriend like many of my other friends but I am using this time to focus on my career path thus forward.
Just because everyone around might be in relationships, engaged, or even married doesn't mean you need to rush your life.
Be patient, follow your dreams while you can. Everyone will follow a different life path. Those different life paths make up a great life story for each and every one of us.
Don't put a time stamp on parts of your life. If you don't get married by the age you wanted, it's okay. It will happen. Maybe right now isn't the right time for you.
If you don't think you'll be in a relationship anytime soon, be patient. Good things come to those who wait. Sometimes when you stop looking, that's when the best things happen.
Time limits don't need to be a thing while getting older. Enjoy your life as things happen. The more we stress about wanting certain things at certain ages, the less likely we will be to enjoy life as it happens
I know it is super easy for you to be down on yourself when you see old friends from high school getting married, getting a huge new job, while you're just working and being single. Trust me though, everyone in life has a life path. Whether you believe that or not. There is a reason for the events happening in your life and how and when they happen.
As for myself, I know my life path and the events happening for me right now are meant to be. It's just the next step in my life path. Life has a weird way of working itself out, so try not to be too hard on yourself if something you "planned" in your head didn't work out exactly the way you wanted it to.
Your 20s might be full of failures but continue to persevere and get through the hard times because those good times will come. You will meet people that are at the same place in life as you and you will meet some that won't be. Just go with the flow and enjoy your life as it comes!
