However, when your early 20s starts to knock on your door, that again tends to change, and this is where things start to get serious. Early adulthood has some form of determination on what we do and how we live for the rest of our lives, in my opinion.
For me, my early 20s were mainly about partying, shopping, partying and partying, because of 2 reasons:
Now, I am not about to play the blame game here as I was adult enough to make my own decisions and no one forced those one off tequila shots down my throat. (even though I hated tequila), and neither should you. However, having the right set of persons in your crew, in your group, in your circle of friends can either help you propel your life to a whole new level or keep you stagnant doing the same things, until that “pre-midlife crisis” you might experience, like I shared in This Post, when your entire world changes and you need to reinvent yourself, your life, and your circle.
Peer pressure is a real thing, even if there isn’t really any pressure. Just the thought of being seen as an outsider is pressure on its own. The point of this long babbling, my story kinda post is mainly to give you a wake-up call. I chose an unstructured theme because I want to exude a bit more of me, a bit more realness and a bit more chill vibe in it.
If I could give you one bit of advice now, it would be to pay attention to your crew. If it is poisoning your soul “even if you don’t feel like it is” you need to change it.
If it is preventing you from doing the things you love openly, you need to change it. If you regret going to the weekend parties every following morning because you are still drunk and hangover as fuck.. YOU NEED TO CHANGE IT!.
The last point I will focus on for now because I never really pursued any of my goals, until after the Pre-MidLife Crisis.Because I did an evaluation, of my accomplishments, of what skills I possessed, of my mindset, of what I genuinely really wanted in life. To live fully & wholeheartedly. If I had the chance of a do over, would I take it? Probably not, because the lessons I’ve learnt I probably would not learn them on that new path.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am sure you love your friends, your peeps.. Yes, I did too, but if the relationships aren’t positive ones, if they don’t resonate with your goals, if they’re preventing your progress, your success, your achievement of milestones, maybe it’s time reevaluated them, started to accept the fact and start creating newer more positive ones.
