11 Things I’ve Learned In My 20’s

1. Change is inevitable

Yes, it’s true when they said change is the only constant in this world. In your twenties, you’ll begin experiencing different changes in your life. From relationships, friendships, career, passion, and places. The people, that you thought would be there forever will someday leave you. One thing that I’ve learned is that it will break your heart – It will always break your heart but thank God, it’s for your own sake. It only means one thing – You are growing.

2. Being matured means being strong enough to make decisions in your life

In your twenties, you’ll begin to start making huge decisions in your life, unlike when we were still little our parents always do the decision making and although most of the time we hate it, we end up following it.

Now, it’s your time to say “Yes” and “No” to different decisions in your life.

3. Finally, you understand how hard budgeting is

Asking for an extra penny for a new t-shirt or shoes was too easy back then, but now? you don’t even have a time for shopping because you always think about your next bills. Budgeting is a major headache for you.
You finally understand the value of the money you earn.

4. Saturdays and Sundays are your only rest day

You prefer to spend your weekends at home, sleeping the whole day, watching TV/movies or re-reading your old books.
‘Me time‘ is important to you. You need to regain the energy you’ve lost during the weekdays.

5. When it comes to bullying – you choose to laugh instead of fighting back

Bullies don’t matter to you now because you totally know who you are. People will always judge you, say something behind your back or destroy you, but now you know yourself better, so instead of fighting back you just brush it off.

6. Having a bunch of friends will only drain you

We are living in a world where we have 2,672 friends (or more) and 312 followers online but actually, in the real world, we only have 2 real friends.

Keeping a small circle of friends is healthy than having a bunch of fake friends around you – Toxic!

7. Considering someone as your ‘Best Friend’ takes time

Considering someone as your best friend sometimes is hard. Because we are all grown-ups now. We all encounter this phase were you consider all of your classmates as your best friend but end up hating each other – We are all victim of this.

The feeling of considering that someone as your best friend but in return, they don’t actually consider you as their best friend. SRSLY?

Trust is also one of the major factors for this. Sometimes we best friend with someone and share them all your secrets and one day that someone gets mad at you and the next day all your secrets were everywhere.

So considering someone as your best friend in your 20’s takes time – a lot of time.

8. Your Instagram feed is well curated

Raise your hand if you’re one of them? haha

We take extra effort to post-process our photos before uploading it to our Instagram account and it takes 10 or more shots before we choose to upload it. Because we always believe that our feed represents us.

9. Travel is one of your major goals

Nowadays we see photos posted on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Instagram about someone spending his/her vacation in Palawan, El Nido, Boracay, Baguio, Siargao and the list goes on. And of course, we dream about going to those destinations too, that’s why we take time to search for a travel package, Piso Fare and more.

Travelling makes you more appreciate the beauty of each places. So go and start your ipon today and travel later!

10. The number of ‘likes’ matter!

I get so irritated when someone brags about how many like he/she gets every time he/she upload or post a status on any social media… Like as if I care?

Yes, I know it feels good when you get many likes, it makes you feel confident and beautiful or handsome but to brag about it is a major no-no for me.

Everyone has a facebook friend like this. I know! I have too!

It’s a compliment that you don’t have to brag or live for.

11. Sabay sa uso

I hope people will always think of this that ‘Hindi lahat ng uso bagay sayo‘.

A lot of people nowadays will always go with what’s trendy or what is mainstream right now without seeing their selves if it looks good to them or if it necessary for them to try and immerse to that. They look ‘trying hard’ tuloy.

It’s not bad to try new things naman and be experimental but I hope people will try to see if it looks good to them muna.
