We’ve spent so many years luking forward to this(20s) phase of life. And it always looked so cool. So glamorous. So filled with love and laughter.
Its messy buns and messy lives, baggy shirts. Lots of work and never enough money. Its freedom with responsibilities and life is no longer what it seemed like. DIFFERENT PEOPPLE ARE DOING DIFFERENT THINGS. But not you. You’re just existing, you’re getting through everyday a littlt better than the last. But then you have days where you can’t get up at all. This life you’re living doesn’t feel complete. Loneliness wraps and you wonder where you went wrong. Why you became different to everyone else.
Did I not do enough? Was there a reason why its never me? Is this going to be the rest of my life? Alone? Unsuccessful? Filled with dreams that never come true?
And then your hands reach out to your phone. One text. One call to someone who might make you feel pretty. And it is so strong, you forget your sanity for a few minutes of flattery. But its never enough. And when you wake up, its worse. You scream hateful words to yourself when will I ever learn? And in that moment, read that words.
So please, dont hate yourself. Dont stop dreaming of fairytales and being as amazing as Malala Yousafzai. You may not always get there, but dont stop. And ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS remember Its okey to be alone. You deserve to wake up with a smile. You deserve to live a life. To make memories so wild. Breathe! Its only your mid 20-s. You’re going to be alright.:-)
