I think all the twenties-awkwardness boils down to this: we people in our twenties feel the pressure to have the present and the future planned out perfectly. We feel the pressure to have it all figured out. What if we laughed through the awkward and embraced these years instead? You know, in the name of preparation. I like to be in control, so this is not easy for me. Through the awkward, I feel there has been a lot of self growth and maturity. Twenty-somethings, has this been your experience?
FLORIDA MAN: AN INTERVIEW WITH TYLER GILLESPIE BY ELLE AVIV NEWTON – ENTROPY
Letting go of control and trusting God to guide us. Thank you for reading! Are you a blogger too? Yes, being in your twenties is awkward! And I like the idea of just embracing it. And definitely making new friends…New friend dates feel more awkward than dating did sometimes! I agree that new friend dates are sometimes more awkward than dating! You hit it right on the head with this one.

Especially, in terms of budget and figuring out where to live. I completely agree. The pressure put on 18 year olds to make decisions that will impact the rest of their lives is absurd! Thanks for reading, Eve! I seemed to be doing all the same things as my friends…going to college, dating, starting a career, getting married, new married life, etc.

I have my own minor health issues, aging body parts, aging parents and a busy teenager. Life is good but it is definitely the most struggle-some that I have experienced thus far.
I rely on prayer and faith to get me through but a lot of days it just seems like the days pass into nights and then back into days and then into weekends and then you start over again. All this to say…every life has stages…some are good and some are bad. Embrace the season you are in and lean on Riley when times get hard. Every decade is different, more challenging and more fun. Treat today as a gift! This is my LIFE. I love, love, love this, Blair!
So many of my thoughts put into well-articulated explanations! Totally sharing! I absolutely love this. I can remember being in my 20s and feeling the same way. Now that I am 33, I will tell you that I have more confidence in who I am in my 30s than I did in my 20s. A LOT changes in your mind and spirit between mid-late 20s and early 30s.
All of my something friends have told me the same thing in our convos over the last few years.
Never let an older generation make you feel like you need to have it figured out. Life is awkward in every stage and is always changing, but it truly gets better the older you get and I am so grateful for that. Thank you for sharing, Jessi! So interesting.
