We want our 20s to be filled with milestones: to land the dream job, have the perfect partner, and live in the ideal home. But having these all at the same time can add unnecessary pressure onto ourselves, especially if we think we're nowhere near our goals. To help you deal with your quarter-life crisis, read our reality check below.
1. Don't overthink finding The One or getting married.
Focus on treating yourself with the love and respect you deserve. As if self-love isn't enough, romantic love will find you faster when you’re completely happy with yourself. Relationships, after all, are not about filling an empty space; they’re about adding someone amazing into your already awesome life.
2. You don't have to know your life's greatest passion just yet.
You're expected to know what your true passion or purpose is by now, but you’ll probably hit your thirties and forties without a clue. Maybe you won’t even find your grand passion, or maybe you’re meant to have many in your life. The point is to focus on the present. Priorities and goals change with time, but you should still be able to meet them. Let your life take its course, and you’ll get to where you need to be eventually.
3. Value your opinions and ideas.
If you spend the rest of your life seeking validation from other people, you'll never feel good enough. Constantly worrying about what others think of you means you’re living for them, not for yourself. And there’s not much happiness in that.
4. Aging is normal, so it shouldn't be that big an issue.
The thought of getting older, your body changing, and not recognizing yourself can be scary. But not looking as healthy or as youthful as you are now should be the least of your problems. But it's worth noting that the skincare and haircare options available these days help delay signs of aging.
If you’re worried about wrinkles, use products that contain retinol to help slow down the skin aging process. If you're experiencing hair fall, try to live a healthier, less stressful lifestyle, and use hair products that help treat it. One of the products you can use is the Cream Silk Hair Fall Defense Conditioner. It’s designed to help make weak and brittle strands stronger from the roots to the tips.
5. Failure is a stepping stone to success.
Years from now, when you’re at the top of your game, you’ll realize that success would not have been possible had you not made mistakes, been rejected, and experienced the lowest points of your life. Failures are only failures when you don't learn from them.
