If you are in your 20s, there are some things you should know in order to help you navigate through your life in the best way possible, while having the time of your life. Check out the following great advice.
1. Speak Kindly To Yourself
Make sure to treat yourself as you would a valued friend. You wouldn’t tell someone you love that she or he has fat thighs or is annoying. So why is it okay to say these things to yourself? Hint: it’s not okay and you need to stop doing it now, for the sake of your mental and physical health. And remember to limit your vices. Your twenties are when your habits start forming. So put down those cigarettes and that bottle of whiskey.
2. Develop Your Skills
Want to learn Italian? Do it. The world really is your oyster. Even if you find out that you don’t enjoy something that you were curious about, it’s still great to learn new things and expand your horizons.
3. Time Heals Heartbreak
It is fair to say that most everyone will experience heartbreak at some point in their lives. But it’s important to remember that everyone gets through it. So give it time and learn new ways to forgive, learn and see the good in everything.
4. Know That You Can’t Please Everyone
Just work on who you can control pleasing: yourself. Really make your needs a priority. A quote by Martha Becks is truly empowering and is something you should take with you when making decisions. It reads, “when it comes to saying yes or no to something or someone, choose the answer that feels like freedom.”
5. Focus On Your Strengths
Be proud of what you do well and never apologize for it. It is wise to nurture your strengths and work on continuously building them up. This is more effective than focusing on your weaknesses.
