♫ For All You 20-somethings...

Perhaps it is because I haven’t lived through another decade yet, but in my opinion, your 20’s is the hardest transition a person goes through. I know that deaths are difficult, I know that mid-life crisis’ must be hard, and menopause cant be fun. But you must go from depending completely on somebody else, to finding your independence, in a matter of years. Please, correct me if I am wrong. I am not saying that life gets easier, or that you don’t have to make choices through your whole life. I am saying that from the moment you turn 20, life as you know it, changes forever.

Most 20 year old's are in college, they are leaving home for the first time, they are drinking legally for the first time, they are getting married, having babies, getting unmarried, finding a real job, losing jobs, losing interests, finding wings, hitting bottom, and realizing, that whether we like it or not, everything revolves around money, that we don’t have. We lose friendships from the past, and build new ones for the future. Society demands our opinion, our maturity, our immaturity, our young minds, and our decisions. Parents request we find our independence, after teaching us to be dependent (not a mistake folks, just part of life).

The hardest part, is everybody is going through it, and every single one of us feels alone.

Luckily, we’re not alone. And, though I could go on and on about how to survive, I was blessed (Thank you Ashley) by a fabulous article today, that said it better. A guide, to survival. And a written form of support, that helps us understand what we are going through, and realizing that regardless of how much you think so, you are most definitely not alone.

I beg you, especially if you are in your 20’s and trying to transition to reality and adulthood, to follow the following link:
