The Dangers of Early-20s Comparisons


 If you'd asked me a few years ago, I'd tell you that I thought this would be my prime. I'd be working my dream job, living in the same city as all my friends and boyfriend, and having the best time in my early 20s. Turns out I was wrong about a lot of things, those included. 

In this year post-grad, I've found myself subconsciously trying to make myself seem better, cooler, more exciting than I actually am. Embarrassed of the fact that I like to go to bed before eleven, that I don't know everything, and that I don't have more figured out. There's something to be said for the immense pressure that the Instagram generation has placed on us to have everything all figured out. I for one totally do not. I still have so much to figure out about my career, and because of which I'm headed back to school to get my MBA. I've been in a long-distance relationship for over a year which is absolutely wild. 

But I'm here to encourage you that it's okay. It's okay to feel the need to start over, it's okay to feel confused and lost. However, what's not okay is to let anyone make you feel less than for being exactly where you are. The only place to go is up!

Until Next Time,
Autumn
