Miserable 20something

>> 12.30.2009

Um, excuse me, but when did 23 become the "end all, be all"?  Since when is it okay to be miserable at the young age of 23? I mean I can kinda understand at 70- maybe your life wasn't all its cracked up to be, but HELLO here people, do you realize how much power you have right now?

I realize that sometimes when the shit hits the fan, you really do feel powerless, miserable and defeated.  And you're completely allowed to feel that way for a few days. Key words: few days.  When you think about all the crap you do have (a computer to start if you're reading this) like an education, a few friends or more, a personality, some goals/aspirations, are you really so miserable that you can't even figure out how to trudge through all the shit thats hit the fan?  Sometimes I really wonder where all the optimism went.  I don't think that we all need to wake up every morning ready to change the world (because thats just inhumane), but to feel powerless to change your life at the mere age of 20something is just sad.

You have all the power in the world to change yourself.  You can't change anyone else, but you can change yourself.  You can wake up one day and decide your miserable, and then decide how you are going to fix it. You have all of that power.

Take a look at where you are now.  Do you wish everyone around you would change? Or are you determined to change your surroundings, your path, your personality to maximize your potential?  You have no excuse to be a miserable 20something. Get over it, get over yourself, and do something about it.

(And yes, I realize its hard. But nothing worth having comes easy).
