Why Adulting Is Scary for Early 20's?

As a young adult, I've encounter a lot of hardships in life, failure, disappointments and rejections but we have to fight until the end.

Happiness and Satisfaction


Life is Ironic

Life is so ironic, it takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence & absence to value presence.

Life of a young adult

Just like what most people says, The struggle is real. As we grow older, there are a lot of changes and challenges that we might encounter. Rejections are inevitable. Failure is just an stepping stone to succeed. Disappointments is just a life lesson for us to improve.The most important is to keep on fighting and never lose hope. We have to be brave enough to face our fears because it will help us to grow as a person. Another thing is always remember that God is always with us in every battle, just pray and He'll grant you what you deserve.



Keep on Fighting

The minute you think of giving up, Think of the reason why you held on so long. We know our weakness, Now, what will we do?? We'll get stronger, We'll get up and fight.

Never give up


Be yourself

I know that in our 20's, A lot of us are still finding our true self and what we want in our lives. Some of us are exploring things to know where they excel, where they belong and what are their purpose in life. Being yourself will help you to achieved what are your hearts desired. It's a good thing if we know what we are passionate to do because it means that you understand what will make you a better person.

"You just have to be yourself and go full with confidence and be courageous."

"To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on."

Life is full of disappointments








Life battle


Adulting is quite hard

As a young adult, I find it hard to be an adult. There's a lot of responsibilities awaits us. We started to get stressed and looking for a job that can help us in our daily expenses and provide our own necessities. Most often, I feel being pressured. Sometimes, I think that I shouldn't grow up so I can escape all the responsibilities of being an adult. When I was a kid, My only problem is to wake up early in the morning and prepared to go to school but now being stressed from work.



Still a kid at heart

As an early 20's who were born during late 90's, We used to play Pacman, Super Mario, Tamagochi, Break Games,Board games and etc. After school, I always watched my favorite anime's such as slam dunk, ghost fighter, hunter x hunter, dragon ball z, pokemon and doraemon. These are some of popular anime's at that time. Until now, I still watch anime even I'm old enough for these because I still considered myself as a kid at heart.

I still do




Failures and Rejections

Sometimes we experience failures and rejections in life. For me, It's really hard to accept it because even when you think that you did your best to attain what you want, It still wasn't enough. Rejections are really painful. I remembered the time when I seek for a job, but get rejected, I cried because I prepared and studied for that day. It lowers my self confidence, lost faith in my self, and started to think am I fool, idiot, moron or stupid? Do I even have a talent or skills? Why am I experiencing this things, should I go back to elementary days? should I go back at a time when I was still a kid? because I'm lacking of something that I think a little kid has. I'm seeking for an advice that can help me to boost my self-esteem. I need words of encouragement, I need someone who can cheer me up and enlighten me when I'm feeling down but in the end, I only have myself, no one else. Yes I have a family and friends, but they have their own life too. I have to stand for myself and be independent because not all the time they are with me. Sometimes, I asked myself, can I live on my own? can I help my family with financial cost? can I provide something for them? What will the future awaits me? I'm a little bit upset because I'm worried of these questions. I can't even find a work that suits mine and companies qualifications. I'm thinking that I'm a failure. I might have a worst outcome in the future and it hurts. When I was browsing in internet about life quotes, I saw something that caught my attention. It was really inspirational message that motivates me to never give up even when you failed many times. It said that failing is first attempt in learning (FAIL) therefore, I conclude that you're doing your best to learn and improve yourself and keep on striving to achieve what you deserve. We must take an actions to progress. Always remember that present creates future. Let's look our situations on a brighter side and most importantly, don't forget that God is always with us. He'll never leave us alone.
