Hello guys ! In these series I would like to share with you my thoughts about adulthood in my 20's with its struggles and benefits. These next paragraphs will always be as true as they can get and I hope you can relate and enjoy and hopefully feel better after reading them !

Let's start this story with a question.Have you ever felt lost ? Like you don't know what you are supposed to do with your life.You are not sure if you should stay in this relationship, in this job or even in this city.You feel kinda stuck in one place but don't know how to move foreward. Well , that has happened to me and probably to millions of people out there too. If you have felt like this before or you are feeling like this right now,welcome to the club and keep on reading.

Adulthood in your 20's can be such a different experience for every single person. Some of us graduated university or college and have a job. Others may still be waiting for this to happen and some might even have a spouse and children. So our prospective on life may differ but some things are the same for all of us - trying to figure out what is the best thing to do right now and wondering if you are doing exactly that. 

I used to think when I was little that 25 year-old adults are supposed to have a job and family and everything sorted out for them.How naive right? When you get to that point in your life you are lucky to meet someone who can say this to you - :" Hey, you are only 25 , it is normal to not know everything, you are allowed to be lost and change jobs , cities , find new people and learn to stay away from toxic people. You are allowed to make your own choices, get a tattoo, dye your hair, be with who you want to be with.Be yourself."  That advice goes for everyone no matter their age. I hope you can take this advice from me if nobody has told it to you yet and go make yourself the person you want to be. 
 

So feeling lost doesn't mean that you are done for and won't make this right. No ! Everyone has these moments. Some can take longer than others but if you focus on something you love doing , you can get through them. Hope this helped some of you , knowing you are not alone.
