I have grown tremendously through my twenties. I know I still have two years until thirty, but I can’t help but reflect. And the biggest thing I have learned is: Feel Comfortable in not being in Control
You’re a Human Being
I love this quote by Beyonce. It resonates strongly with me. Sometimes, you may forget that you’re a human being. You’re a normal woman with normal desires and fears. Accept that about yourself.
Not everything is going to be perfect and you won’t always know the answers in advance. It takes time and experience to learn what may have appeared to be obvious to you now, but you didn’t know at the time. So cut yourself some slack!
Be Comfortable with Not Knowing
This is the biggest lesson I can take away from my twenties. For a good chunk of my life, I have tried to be in control. But life was always one step ahead of me. The truth is I’m only a human being and I don’t know all the answers in advance. I don’t know the outcomes to my actions in advance. The only thing I can do is keep putting my best foot forward and hope for the best.
Allow Yourself to Fall in Love
Another huge lesson I learned in my twenties. Open myself to fall in love. Love is a beautiful emotion. It’s filled with many gray shades, and to be honest, I have stopped judging people now. Because there really sometimes is no right or wrong when you’re in love. It brings out a wide range of emotions in you, but what would life be like with no love? It’s how you live a complete life.
