Joining the 20’s league is like a dream when one is in teenage period. But do you think that it is really so cool? You’re on your own without your parents for the first time. You’re probably living on your own income and you need to be responsible for so many things. You’re finally a functioning adult. But do you have what it takes to be one?
Being on your own will also end up in mistakes. You’ll be doing so many things for the first time and it’s only natural to screw up once in a while. It’s going to be challenging to be perfect, but you’ll have to try anyway.
It’s okay to make mistakes in your 20s, as long as you’re learning from them. Here are some mistakes that are okay to commit in your 20s –
1. Studying something that you didn’t want to.
In school, everything was clear to you. You were going to go on a certain path and all your dreams were right in front. In your 20s, it seems a little different. You have completed your studies and you’ve got a job. But it seems like your passion lies somewhere else.
But let me tell you, it’s completely fine to choose another profession. You’re not too late and you still have time to catch up. You can still put in a few years for your dream job and get where you want to be.
2. Getting fired.
You’re just starting out with your career and you’re bound to make mistakes. If you were fired from your job because of a mistake you made, it’s not the end of the world. You’re still young and you’ve got many opportunities ahead of you.
3. Picked a wrong job.
You took up a job, but now you regret it. Well, it’s not too late to make a change. You can think about where your heart lies and follow that direction. You can make changes because you still have time.
4. Dropped out of school.
Many successful people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs were dropouts. Their dream didn’t lie in the mundane subjects of college and they chose to follow their dreams. If you believe you can do so much better with your talents, it’s okay to drop out. There could be something bigger and better waiting for you out there.
5. Got into a wrong relationship.
You’re still naive when it comes to relationships. You are not experienced so it could happen that you fall for the wrong person. It will lead to heartbreak, but that will only make you wiser in the long run. Later in life, you will be able to make better decisions and you will find the correct partner.
6. Leaving your friends behind.
You’re growing up and you will choose paths that would be different from your friends. It doesn’t have to cause animosity but it’s possible that you will have to leave some of your friends behind.
7. Not giving a chance to love.
If you’re all about education and work right now, that’s fine. Maybe you don’t have time for love in your life or you want to become something first. You’re allowed to build yourself and then take a shot at romance. Your true love will be waiting for you no matter what.
