How to ruin your 20s
The shortest cut to ruining your 20s is by becoming too obsessed on what is irrelevant to life. Could it be the party or the girls or the things you love but that does not make a difference? The real life starts when you are responsible and when you find your purpose. And it is then you feel the existence of death and you get fascinated with the shortness life.
But most 20s is a confusion between a fantasy and reality.
But is 20s too good to be big?
We see many celebrities in their 20s. They are all over a media, with their inventions or small actions or music. But the majority is hidden away in front of the TV watching these success stories.
In fact, most people were nothing in their 20s. As I said the 20s is a clear confusion. Because the vague confusion was the teen age where we run around with a though of inflated ego. And when the smallest of the pins popped our balloon we stayed there wishing if life would have been better or different. We stayed up to see the other part of life where we are not that egoistic but curious. The 20s is drinking, sleeping around and obsession of doing something that seems impossible for the older age.
What is the best thing to do in 20s.
It depends. You could be the one that could do something in your 20s. the reality is the 20s is a preparation time for the rest of life for most. You finish college in your first 20s. and you are thrown out in to the world to figure your place in it. The debt, the result of careless decision, the pressure to make money or to get a woman/man or to build a house. All makes you conscious puppet.
Your efforts are in a dream like state where you are swimming in the big ocean wising for the endless horizon.
Instead, your 20s should be a preparation for what comes in your 30s. You should prepare the base for the real life. You shall learn the economic, social and cultural values of life, society, family. You should plan and start to become your dreams.
I have worried much. But I write not to worry.
For some, achievement is the lesser things in life. it could be graduating from a mere college. For others, it the perfectness of their dream. Well, life depends on how you perceive it. What matters is whether you made the right decision or not and whether you are prepared to make an impact or not. If the opportunity showed up on your door steps, take it. If not be prepared and create one. The time or the age is irrelevant.
