IT'S A LONG POST, BUT I THINK IT'S SOMETHING MOST (IF NOT ALL OF US) DEAL WITH.. SO PLEASE DO READ IT..
I wish we could just get rid of this time frame created and thrust upon us by society..
Complete your degree by 23. Get married by 26. Definitely have kids before 30.
What if I don't want to do that?
What if it took me a while to get to where I am right now.. Doing what I want to be doing..
What if i realised what I really wanted was something else only after I turned 30.
What if I want to travel the world and go to places and experience things that make me grateful for being alive before I settle down and have a family?
Right now, I am doing what I've always wanted and I'm loving it, but I definitely won't have completed by degree by 23..or be married and have kids by the time I'm 30..
And although, I'm okay with that most of the time.... Sometimes, just sometimes, I feel like I've lost all this time that I'll never get back and that I've somehow fallen behind everyone else.. When did life become a race..?
When did I stop being happy in the present by worrying about the future and regretting the past..?
When did I lose sight of my actual goal in life...to be happy..
Ps. I'm considering making a post about how to deal with this and what to do instead.
Let me know what you guys think...
