In the future, I will look back at these years and love them. I am creating the life I will have, right now, this very second. I am the oldest I've ever been and the youngest I'll ever be again. It's an awesome thought.
However, I think these twenty-something ages are the most confusing. You're meant to be having fun, yet settling down. You're meant to be out on the lash every weekend, but saving for a mortgage. You're meant to have a full time job, but have time to socialise, pamper AND have creative hobbies.
How can I do all that?
Being true to myself is the hardest thing I've really ever fought for. It goes through tough patches. When people question 'why?' about my everything. To have my beliefs poo pooed. To be made to doubt myself.
It ain't nice. But, it happens.
Being who you are might not be going out on a Friday and a Saturday night, but sitting in watching Xfactor and reading, single and quite happy to count eating cereal from the box a hobby. Being who you are might be feeling right at home surrounded by loads of mates and spending your pay packet on awesome amounts of Dominos whilst being in a long term relationship.
In the end, the only person who cares is you.
Being a twenty-something is the time to discover what 'being you' is. What it means. How you're going to get to being you in ten years time is up to you and only you.
Just remember to enjoy the journey.
