The Unnecessary Pressure Which Is Your 20’s

I’ve been in my 20’s for just over a year. Recently turning 21. And I must admit, it has been the most pressuring year of my life. Yet it wasn’t from outside influences.

It was from the sheer thought of me being in my twenties.

There’s something about your twenties, which makes you feel like you must get your shit together quickly, otherwise, you’re a failure, someone who’s accomplished nothing.

I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. It’s a topic which can go across twitter quite regularly. People talking about how stressful it can be, how we don’t need to listen to what it says.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s never too late to start something, or even start over.

And as true as that is, it doesn’t stop that nagging pressure.

I can’t help but wonder what my 30’s will be like. Will this voice be stronger? More vicious? Screaming at me that I’m not doing enough?

Or will it become calmer, more relaxed? The decade of stress has gone, I’m now allowed to relax a little…

For those of you who are in your early 20’s, do you get hit with the stress and pressure?

To those of you in your late 20’s, does it remain? How have you handled the pressure it forces upon you?

And to those of you who are 30 and above, does it stay? Does it get better or worse? Do you find a way to manage this maddening stress?

Until next time,
Surviving Millennial.
