This morning I was reading an article about women that are in their twenties and what stood out is that the writer said that our twenties is the “me years.” It never classified this period of my life as that, but looking back I can see how it. So are our twenties just about us being self-centered?
Reviewing these past few years I see how there were times when it was all about me, what I wanted, and insuring my happiness. When I turned twenty I can say that everything was about me because I felt that if I didn’t make things happen for me then it wouldn’t happen. So my life was my focus.
My actions have reflected that mind-set over the past couple of years as I pushed for my independence and didn’t consider how doing that affected my family. Since then I’ve learned to consider others in my decisions and see outside of my world. Ir’s a work in progress to think about everyone else, but I can’t just focus on my world.
Our twenties may be a little self-centered, but someone one said that if our focus is only on ourselves then we have a small focus. It’s true that we have things to figure out and adjust to, but we have to balance our work us with the people in our lives. Our world may be important, but what would it be without the people who are important to us?
