Saying goodbye to my Twenties

Posted on 9 August, 2018 by Fadwa A.Soliman in Personal Development

In two months I’ll say goodbye to my 20’s & I’ll welcome my glorious 30’s.

I sat down to reflect on the past decade, It was full of heartache, sadness, happiness, depression, confusion & it’s been a real emotional rollercoaster.

But I’ve come to realize that this is how it’s supposed to be, society made me believe that I was supposed to figure out all of life in my 20’s, that I’m supposed to think about settling down & putting down roots, this was so exhausting, feeling like a failure, hiding out in my room because I didn’t live up to “expectations”.

Twenties should only be about making memories, making bad decisions, falling in and out of love some many times that you’ll actually lose track of it, it’s about trying to figure out what you love, what you hate, what’s actually going on in your little mind, it’s about discovering life & joy, it’s about experiencing everything, it’s NOT about regards, or “What IFs” , is NOT about “If only”, Is all about truly living without limitations. I didn’t get to do it.

So, my journey for the next two months will be all about reconciliation with life, with myself & with Allah. Getting closures & opening up new pages to Begin my 30’s as the woman I’m supposed to be, who’s just me ❤️
