You may have to take many life changing decisions like what you have to do in life and what you should not. It is better to know these things, which would otherwise teach you giving a bad experience. So let us have a look at what you are going to experience in the future if you don’t want to have an emotional collapse. They are
1. You lose important friends
When you continue your life journey in search of new pastures to graze and to have new feats to achieve, it becomes almost impossible for you to ring up or communicate with your friends as you did when you were in college. Life is really empty without our sweet friends. You think you are the main reason for losing people. But, the reality is that when you get a job and try hard to meet your work deadlines, it is very difficult to stay in touch. The life journey is just like a river. People come and go, but the river goes on forever!
2. Parents are our best friends
When we are just kids, we sit on out parents’ lap and enjoy to our heart’s content. They pamper us and we feel life is a blessing that God can give us. Once we start going for a job and make a fast buck, the wonderful moments you have spent with your parents have become a dream. Those were your best days and parents are the best people you can ever get. Even if you have always hated their guidance and advice, they are God’s gift to us.
3. Life is not a fairytale
You have always thought that life is very easy as in Cinderella, sleeping beauty tales. A little effort is to be put in to preserve the relationship with your old friends. You are a tween now and should view life as something serious and not a child’s play. You should have the capacity to take care of yourselves and hold the onus of responsibility for whatever happens to you in life.
4. Maintain good oral hygiene
Visit a dentist regularly to keep your teeth healthy. It is the time when you have to give utmost care to avoid dental problems later. Nobody will like to have gum problems or cavity at the age of 22 or 24. Earlier the better.
5. Never postpone things
Whatever plan you might take in 2017, this year, try to bring them to action. Just like you are 20 now, you will soon be 30. Never let a single day go with regret. So start early, live happily. Avoid being lazy.
6. Eat healthy food to avoid being fat later
Be diet conscious and eat food that gives you energy rather than add fat to your body. If you are a little kinder to your stomach, your body will be kind to you even if you are in your 40’s.
7. Respect yoursteenas elf
The best thing you can learn even if you are 20 years old is to respect yourself. If you want others to respect you, first learn to have self-esteem.
8. Invest in yourself and not money
You can get some money by doing what you think is best for you. But, you should be careful and invest in yourself to improve your skills and knowledge. The money you earn can be taken away from you, but not your knowledge and accomplishments.
These are the 8 life lessons every 20 something should know.
