You're So Young!

Updated: Dec 16, 2020

I know that this title may be a little avant-garde, but let me explain.

Every time I speak to someone about their issues, or even when I'm thinking of everything going on in my life - my words of (somewhat) wisdom are always "you're so young!"

... When you're having relationship problems

By no means am I a relationship guru as I have never been in a relationship, but - that also means I have never been in a bad relationship!

The thing is, so many young people try to find themselves by being with someone else who 'completes them' - and when they experience issues within the relationship, they fall apart inside.

My response would always be - break up with them, you don't need them.

And I know that sounds pretty radical, but honestly, if you can't be happy and confident just by yourself, then there is no point in trying to re-kindle something that isn't working.

You're so young - you have all the time in the world to find your Prince Charming (or your Fiona).

... When you're not happy with your career

I can totally understand people who are not satisfied with their careers. Working the same 9-to-5 can be exhausting and seemingly getting you nowhere exciting.

I urge everyone to find a career where they're genuinely thrilled to jump out of bed in the morning and be prepared to work hard. Yet that is rarely the case.

It might sound crazy to some to go back to university, take some online classes or start your own businesses... but you're so young! You can do anything you set your mind to!

... When you're not satisfied with your home life

I can 100% relate to this one too! Feeling like you're stuck in your home feeling miserable most of the time.

It's not easy when you have to live with people you don't necessarily get along with, but unlike the above advice I've given about taking action and control into your own hands... I suggest you stick it out as long as you must until you can move on to bigger and better.

Nothing is permanent, and as long as you are working hard to change the things you aren't happy with at the moment, then that's the best you can do. You're still so young, you have time before you move out.

... When you want to do something spontaneous

Do it.

If you have the urge and passion to do something, then you should absolutely do it!

So many people nowadays are too scared of failure, that it cripples them. It stops them from making spontaneous and potentially life-changing decisions.

But you're soooooo youngggg! What's the worst that could happen? You learn something about yourself from the experience? That doesn't sound too bad does it? If you really mess up, everyone will forgive you because, well, you're just young!
