In my twenties now, all mixed up and confused about where my life is heading. Finding this on pinterest tonight was like someone having an honest conversation with me when I was down. Thanks for this and have an awesome weekend ahead:. I see my 20th birthday as a very serious thing. I feel like I was floating by throughout my 10s, not really caring about some things that I care about now. I regret not getting very serious at Some are a few years younger than me.
I also loved your vimeo video intro! Keep up the good work! Thank you Katie for the kind words. Glad I can always re-read this when the going gets tough!
You may have a lot of experiences in your life that actually I can relate with mine especially 16,17, I am so grateful I found you here. Hope you snag the full Secrets for your Twenties book as well.
This made me both laugh and cry. And when I went to type in my email address, I accidentally typed in my email address I used in high school. Thank you so much for this Paul. I relate to so many things in here that I thought I was just reading a chapter of my life. I just needed to vent. Thanks anyway at least I know am not alone. This coming from a girl all the way from Africa. Thank you Edith for sharing these honest thoughts that I know many of us have also struggled with.
You can vent here anytime! I have just recently gone through a time of feeling lost, feeling like a loser and calling myself a loser more than once, being depressed, caring too much what other people thought about me and so on.
I am feeling better now and working on yet again getting all my little piggies back together. Thank you for the reality on how alot of 20 somethings are feeling….. Thanks Candace for the honesty and awesomeness of this comment. I really appreciate number 15 as well…whats to say if facebook was never invented? Would we feel differently about ourselves? If they like you for who you are in a swimsuit hair in a messy bun, no makeup, and remnants of the freshman 15 then they are a keeper!
Paul, just snooping around your website. Really like number 7. Failing school, getting fired from my job, and just all the drama that I caused for myself and family.
Got to learn and keep moving ahead. Best wishes on all that your doing!! Great hearing from you and thank you for sharing your story. Yeah I think many twentysomethings feel like they have a terminal case of failure.
I know I did as well. Hope to see you around All Groan Up again! Love your blog Samantha, so glad im not the only one going through the blurr we call the 20s.
Are you people on facebook? I would love to follow the lives of other people around my age, im almost 24, and hopefully see everyone progress! Hi Reza, thanks for stopping by allgroanup. You can connect more with the community at the All Groan Up Facebook page https: This is a great article. Everything is for real and every twentysomething should read this. This stage of life is a bumpy wild ride. Im not even in my 20s yet but this article is soooo great! Wow funny article tried so much different crap in my twenties feel more the better for it, but non the less more confused.
I was crying this morning cos I moved to the coast when I got pregnant last year away from everything and everyone… I miss them… I feel so lost!!!
Thanks Sash for sharing your story. I can definitely relate to that feeling. But as I often say, being lost is the first step to exploring. What new amazing things will you discover? But who would build a station and a track just to service one train EVER. I loved the article! I feel like an old tired lady. I can definitely relate Juliana. Some weeks I feel unstoppable. Trying to find some sort of direction — which way you want to turn, or which rabbit hole to head down?
I feel exactly the same way. Responsibilities here and there. I miss the days when I was a kid, no anything. No care about the world. Have a lot on my mind yet do not know how to execute. I just wanna take a break and forget about everything. Haha, 25 here, it feels as if I just turned My big issue is constantly comparing myself to others. Trust me, that you are so not alone.
Hang in there… if I can, you can. This is exactly the same scenario for me. I can relate to you Philip!
I always compare myself to others as well.. I am 24 with a degree in English but I feel completely lost. None of the dreams I had seemed to be realistic long before became real-now I only feel like I will have to follow the very basic and conventional life choices after all.
It was definitely a light bulb moment for me when I defined Obsessive Comparison Disorder and realized how much it crushes my creativity, heightens my anxiety, and basically motivates me to do nothing else but eat raw cookie dough even against all warning that it might kill me.
I see the youth in 26, but 25 is killing me for some reason. Like, I got carded for a pg movie last week. It freaks guys my age out, and employers never take me seriously. You have no excuse as to why this happened! Thanks for sharing your story Ki! Then soon it will be over. I see looking younger as an advantage for us, providing we act on it. I guess I was very comfortable. I finished uni at the end of and have yet to get a job in my profession.
I have no idea what it is I want to do at all. And next year is my 10 year highschool reunion….. Life is great HA! Damn man, sounds rough when you put it that way. Point is, realistically, I only had me in my corner. Best of luck to you, faith and prosperity brother. Thanks for sharing these wonderful and honest thoughts Ki. Our twenties are definitely more process than surprise party. Wow this is amazing and made me feel so much better about everything.
Number 8 and number 16 really stuck with me the most. I feel like because of so many people around us parents, teachers, friends insinuating what we are supposed to be doing all the time, we go insane. I just turned 20 a few months ago, and was hit with the uneasy feeling of not knowing what to do at all.
Its an over powering feeling of fear, confusion, being lost. Then I look at my friends, and all of them are married already and they seem like everything is already together for them. Seeing it all just makes me feel worse, but after reading this article and also reading these comments; I feel like have some new found breathing room.
Thank you for your advice. I look forward to reading your book. You have a wide open field full of awesome waiting in front of you. Being lost is the first step to exploring. Im 24, my girlfriend? I have been in a relationship for 2 years and we moved in together a year ago. Everything was peachy when we were both looking for jobs and as we were working part time and living off money we had saved up… then the real job started 7 months ago for me and 3 months ago for her.
I realize how inexperienced and just generally naive I am when it comes to relationships. I may have more skilled and practiced before work started but wow I am just such a NOOB… Oh and we met in swimsuits with drinks in hand.
Any advice on bouncing back? I end up having to scrape through the month to survive. I got two degrees and entered my field with passion, only to realize that I actually hate my field. I went through 4 jobs in a year and quit the last one after being yelled at on my 4th day by a delusional paranoid old boss. Thankfully I convinced a successful 22 year old to marry me and now he works a supporting me and I feel like a terrible person.
A goal would be nice. Just reading this… bout to turn 20 in 9 days so might as well. There were some lightly meh points but I just wanted to say that I did grow up in church and I had problems with my faith. All of a sudden right now it is the contrary of me not even going to church.
I am actually going to church on my own and I enjoy it. Still this is a huge new place for me and I am kind of scared but want to make the best of it as an adult. Thats exactly how i feel right now. Other days, spent partying and drinking away. The worst of it all is — i feel so lost. It may or may not be depression. Im afraid to get psychological help, as i may get diagnosed with something which could possibly make me feel even worse.
I like to believe i dont have depression, and just going through a phase, but it just so hard. Im afraid to drop out of college, but i also, do not know if i can finish it. I have 0 interest in it, and 0 motivation. Im considering giving hypnotherapy a chance, also wanting to try yoga and mediation…I heard some people swear by Reiki.. God only knows how long i will feel so stuck and lost in life. I just know i gotta to do something, take a risk, try something new and beneficial in life,,, Act on that great idea you wrote about… Reading the article and everyones comments, made me realize how many more people are in the same exact situation as myself… I guess, writing yet, another personal story in a comment just allows myself, and others get it off our shoulders, which is somewhat of a relief.
I just turned 26! Decided to go back to school, only to realize how much I miss my freedom. After about 10 rejections from my dream jobs. I have decided to start fresh. I have no idea how to be 26 and single! Such an excellent guide, I love that saying about the grass, you have to sift through a lot of manure to get to the good part! For so long finishing school and obtaining my dream job were my goals. Gosh i can so relate to this, the 20s are such a depressing and confusing time, im almost 24 and i feel more lost than ever, at a dead end job and a series of unsuccessful relationships… Lets hope things will get better soon!
This was a great article, made me smile and rethnik some issues at the same time. It feels really pointless. Being also single at the same time is not helpful. Though, I find your point no. It is true, you should never back off because of fear of embarrassement. I found most opportunities here http: It was definitely helpful to put my situation in perspective.
I have for some reason hit this wall lately where I feel stuck in life, one crappy job to another full of people that make you feel as smart as a bag of beans. Im one week shy of turning 23, and yet i feel like im turning I just feel like people assume that cause im young and starting out in life that im a clueless twat.
Soo many choices and opportunities. So many expectations and sooo much pressure to suceed. Its like every time i see someone like family or friends all they do is poke and prod dumping judgement and their opinions on how to soo called better my chances!
Im dealing with that every damn day!! I felt like by now I should have had it all figured out. Amazing job, amazing home and amazing relationships. I want to travel, see the world and yes go on a road trip. It just sucks having all this debt from school loans. It literally can leave you trapped. I think all the responsibility is what freaks me out and not being able to walk away at the drop of a dime.
I think about the young celebrities who are my age and are famous and think hey what did I do wrong why am I not as successful as them. I remember 23 being a tough. I never post on a site but I just had to this time. This article and also your whole website has helped me so much over the past few days. Thank you for your articles and also for the humor you tie in as well!
I have to say, I found comfort in this. But every night I go to bed so disappointed with myself for not honouring the promises I made to myself. I always lived by that John Lennon quote that states all he wanted be when he grows up is happy. And I have failed that very basic promise. My relatives all hate me, since childhood, my cousins always hated me and left me out and never invited me to their birthdays but they came to mine.
They all ignore my friend requests and messages. Proving they are still crappy people after all these years.
I had neglectful parents as a child, and sadly I live with my mom who is very bi polar and can say very cruel things, and she is very controlling and often threatens suicide. I just want you to know I read every word and life has dealt you some bad hands. People will fail you that is for sure.
I hope you have found at least a little something to be hopeful for since you wrote your feelings here. Just know there is a mother out there who can relate through her own son. I bet once you find yourself you are going to meet a pretty great person. Found this site while I was googling on mid 20s crisis… Today has been such a day… making myself feeling worst as it already have.
To read that there are people that having the same issues like me… kinda lift up my spirit a bit. Sometimes its just best to live and forget about your age. Let you heart guide your life not your age.
Just focus on how you feel right now, and go from there. Im Turning 24 soon and I feel like im 16 and still can be grounded yet I live on my own, putting myself thru college to open my own business by years.
At the same time i feel old because i never go out, been working since 14 and literally have had more than one job at a time…just work work work. Im watching all my friends from high school either marry or have kids if their not on their second or third kid by now and its like we graduated high school 6 years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday, they didnt experience life yet. My study, my job, my love were so much easier.
I never get any promotion, all the efforts done more intense than what I did before but the result was demotivating. I have been in the point where I am thinking that do I really want to keep doing with what I am doing right now or start changing the directions.
It made me feel a bit relieved. I thought I would be going to a university in a dorm with a job, maybe a boyfriend, and a couple of people I hang out with often that I can be real with. I go to a community college Its not bad, I just need to transfer , I still live with my mom, no job, and I feel alone most of the time. Reading these articles help me a lot, I just need to get up and do it instead of pushing it to the back of my minds me forgetting about it.
Ashnacole, the more eyes-wide-open and intentional you are about your twenties, the more fulfilled you will find yourself down the road. It is worth reaching out, inviting people out to coffee or over for dinner is a step in the right direction. Get plugged into your local church young adult group or an activity that you enjoy a free one is even better.
It gets better, I promise, but keep showing up, keep reaching outward. Also, check out my article on the 7 pitfalls to avoid in your twenties. If you can get these down, you will be better off than most! So I everything was going exactly how I planned until I had no choice but to drop my nursing classes because of my GPA.
I just worked for a year, was really depressed.. I feel so alone. My friends from school all post pictures about how great clinical are.. I literally worked my butt off in school. But just to not have it pay off really made me so unstable, insecure and broken. My parents are just so nice and willing to do everything for me. But I feel so dependent and like a child. I was always so independent, knew what I wanted. Im 24 and i felt like life sucks as we get older.
You loose faith because you want too. But other than that, it kinda makes sense. Have you been able to grab Secrets For Your Twenties? Would love to hear what you thought. Hope your week is being filled with amazing. I can relate to every single point of your list, frankly Everything felt in place back in He was more mature and caring person, I must point that out.
Obviously we never learned how to love each other due to our different perspectives. After that I tried to fix my puzzled young life as I found it to be.
I worked out approximately 5 out of 7 days a week, I changed my diet moved to veggie neighborhood where cooking is less complicated finished my uni assignments from I quit social smoking, social drinking, student crappy job I h-a-t-e-d.
I can climb a mountain! I even left my flatmate, apartment were all my memories of messy lifestyle remain. Truth is I want to learn how to be free and spontaneous again, to say FUCK it and BE twenty as I am according to Planet but life is much more complicated than just realizing and doing it.
I completely appreciate this post. I just have to get my bearings together so that I can get back in school for it. I was a CNA before I graduated high school and I loved helping people and being in the medical field. I love the fast paced nature.
I just want to love my life and be excited about everything going on in it. Really appreciate the great comment. Keep intentionally fighting to live intentionally. I came back from denmark to live with my parents cause I have no money saved. My sleeping hours are kind of chaotic since sometimes I go to bed at 11pm and other times at 3am and sleep so many hours to the extent that I feel ashamed of waking at hours like 10ampm. Often times, I spend more than 7 hours almost straight in front of my laptop searching and researching ways of how to make money online or read and watch conspiracy news.
I have this strange feeling in my guts that even though I plan for and desire success badly, the thought of knowing that this world is coming to an end soon according to the bible prophecies being fulfilled by current world events, I still fail in pursuing my dreams and passion such as online entrepreneurship. I have very good sex appeal and skills with girls but…It makes me wanna punch in my own balls when I realize I have no place of my own, no position, no money, no empire, no life experiences as traveling for the sake of traveling, no car and no nothing, only my skills which still help me keep a steady confident state of mind.
But it feels horribly frustrating when you know 25 is jumping on you like a lion. How do I tame this lion that overwhelms me? Any of you who feels like this world is going to hell literally, your years of pension are close, you feel like you wanna become a person of success, but still wonders…. Long story short, you set objectives for yourself, and when life disappoints, you get miserable.
Why are many Buddhists happy? Because they give up on alot of the goals Westerners set for themselves. We are in a society where we want success, power, status, etc…And when we fail to get it, we feel like failures. All I can say, is that to me part of the solution is setting realistic goals, and working towards them. This sounds easy but isnt. Another thing is action action action.
Getting stuck is a choice. No matter what you do, do something. Life will go by anyway. Thanks for the tips. Your life has a lot of great possibilities, use them!
Everyday I feel like I wanna quit my job, but i dont feel confident enough if I could get another one though. I feel stuck, and unmotivated. I dont wanna go out with my friends friends I used to hang out with anymore on weekend. I just wanna eat, eat, eat, eat and eat and then feel bad with my body later on. Everyday I feel like Im a big failure with lots of debts and unpaid bills.

I have deleted my Facebook account, twice. Very few intangibles though. We start talking on the couch, watching tv, just shooting the shit. I go in for the kiss and we start making out a little.
