Adulthood - FARAHZ

30 September 2020



When I was younger, I dreamed of getting older, being an adult, so that I can do anything and everything I want (I believe every child/teen wanted that freedom too). I wanted to grow up. I always thought that by the year of 25, I will have this type of car, this much of saving, and buy this kind of house. 

But now, I am 25 years old, the reality slapped me real hard. Waking up is always painful because I have to stop dreaming and go to work, haha. 25 is the weirdest phase of life (for now). In my opinion, 25 is the phase where you put the line between reality and expectation.

For me, everything has to be crystal clear and I expected an explanation for everything that had happened. But it wasn’t always like that. Sometimes, things didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. I have so many unanswered questions. But I realized, over time, life is not a race and being an adult is messy. No one ever told me that adulthood is boring and I’ve had ton of responsibilities cling to me for the rest of my life. 

One of the hardest truths I have to deal during adulthood, the people I looked up to, wasn’t who I had thought they were. They didn’t have it all working perfectly together. They’re just a messy, flawed person like me. Lesson learned, if you ever look at someone and think they have everything work perfectly together, they don’t. Everyone has their own perceptions and issues to deal with. They just didn’t tell you about it. Stop judging or assuming everything. You don’t know their inner struggles.

For those who are currently struggling the adulthood like me, I know it isn’t going to be easy. You will fall and stumble and you will hurt a lot. That’s adulthood. But everything will slowly fall into place. You will learn a lot of incredible new things, meet a lot of inspiring people, experience a lot of amazing moments, etc. Just keep going and have fun along the way.
