I think I lost most of my precious time in my twenties. I procrastinated, neglected my health, and thought I had time but now here I am! I wish I could go back in time to better my decisions but we all know it’s impossible. Who I am kidding, when you are in you’re young you can’t be warned. This was a remark on Quora Digest from a certain Jennifer. Many people may agree with her, claiming that it is hard to be warned about the mistakes made by others before us, particularly while we are young, but is everything truly lost? While people seem to think that the twenties are the best years of their lives, these may actually be the most difficult. Most young individuals are given the majority of their freedom at this age, allowing them to make their own choices and decisions. However, due to the pressure to own and exercise the same permitted freedoms, this is also the moment when young people are most perplexed. People in their twenties are typically overwhelmed by feelings of loneliness, inertia, dissatisfaction, self-doubt, nostalgia, and depression, according to Rachel Jones, a young renowned writer, and artist. These are frequently caused by their childhood experiences, which have an impact on their lives, whether positive or negative. Psychology argues that any young people in their twenties, end up engaging in a variety of unhealthy behaviors, some of which are fatal, as a method to escape from hardships in their lives or fit in with what peer pressure is calling them to. In addition, as Jenifer realised, the delusion that they still have a lot of time ahead of them leads to a lot of regrets later in life. The following are some of the most common blunders: Getting hooked on the “Party Lifestyle” This not only costs a lot of money and time, but it also causes other issues. When someone starts craving the ambiance they enjoy at a party when they use drugs, or when they binge drink, it could be an indication that addiction is on the way. Another sign could be the development of tolerance. To put it another way, one begins to consume more and more drugs or alcohol, more frequently and in larger quantities. The temptation to use more comes with tolerance. Also, mind when you make poor decisions while under the influence. Too much alcohol consumption and drug misuse may lead to engaging in dangerous actions that negatively affect your life. Not working on getting financially stable Whether one wants to hear it or not, saving is really important. It is advisable to work harder at an early age, before children and a family enter the picture for those who aspire to go down that path. One can wake up a decade later with nothing on which to build their lives in a world that continuously demands that we prove ourselves. Many dreams are lost forever in this manner; we end up never traveling to the places we desired or we become a burden to others. Others become enraged or depressed when they see their peers or coworkers doing something they didn’t when they needed to. ‘Live for the day’ It is never a good idea to live unguided by purpose. However, predicting what the future holds is difficult. Many of us were surprised by Covid-19, for example. Did anyone think we’d be fighting a dangerous pandemic for the next two years? As a result, it’s preferable to concentrate solely on current objectives while remaining patient with ourselves as things become more difficult. ‘Education is enough to be successful in life’ Although a degree from a prominent university is a useful asset, it does not guarantee you a great job. If it is not accompanied by hard work and dedication, it is pointless. In the pursuit of success, networking, additional field knowledge through workshops, volunteering, and internships could be very beneficial aspects. Neglecting your health The majority of people in their twenties believe they are invincible. Partying all weekend, not getting enough sleep, eating unhealthy foods, and being dehydrated. However, as you get older, you’ll discover that you can’t party as you did at university and that some of those habits are harmful to your health in the long run. Young people should also pay attention to their emotional and physical well-being.
