5 wijze levenslessen waar iedere twentysomething iets aan heeft

Het leven voor jou als twentysomething is soms al ingewikkeld genoeg. Neem vriendschap, liefde en werk en je hebt je handen vol aan de problemen die deze drie factoren alleen al veroorzaken. Maar maak je geen zorgen, dankzij deze vijf wijze levenslessen van dertigers leer je relativeren.

Wijze levenslessen waar je iets aan hebt

Niemand hoeft jou te vertellen hoe je je leven moet leiden. Toch? Maar omdat ook jij soms even niet meer weet wat je moet doen, zijn hier nuttige en vooral wijze levenslessen van vrouwen die het allemaal al een keer meegemaakt hebben. Lees en leer.

1. Alleen jij weet wat goed voor je is

“Experiences and people that make you feel awful and less aren’t meant for you. You don’t have to struggle to keep them. You aren’t required to stay there. You are allowed to pursue what feels good and true.” —Steph L.

“I would tell my twentysomething self to stand up for [herself]. I would firmly tell her she does not have to accept what makes her feel bad and she knows is wrong. She is right about how she feels and what she wants from life. Don’t ever defer to someone else about your feelings and wants.” —Andrea T.

2. Leer om van jezelf te houden voordat je van iemand anders houdt

“Self-confidence is ultimately only going to come from within. I spent most of my twenties making everyone around me happy and did not put myself first. I wasn’t able to really find a good balance until I finally felt comfortable in my own skin and to make myself a priority. At the end of the day, the only person that can truly empower [you] is yourself, and if you are good with who you are, self-esteem will naturally arise.” —Emily W.

3. Verspil je tijd niet aan je zorgen maken

“Worry less, a lot less. I wasted so much time and energy on worrying about things that either weren’t as bad as I made them out to be or never even happened at all. And this is coming from someone with two different diagnosed anxiety disorders.” —Casey P.

“I would tell my younger self to relax. I stressed about my career, I worried about someone… I was dating. (Was he the one? Does he like me?) The stress didn’t serve me well. It’s something I continue to work on but am tenfold better at relaxing now.” —Antonia T.

4. Begin alsjeblieft met sparen

“Pay your bills on time or before the due date. Interest will drown you. Have a nest egg, an emergency fund, and live with less. Who are you trying to impress?” —Ronnika W

5. Geef niet je geld uit aan goedkope, kwalitatief slechte kleding

“Please stop spending so much money on frivolous things! Your H&M, Zara, and Forever 21 clothes are going to fall apart, or you will give them away, so buy a few nice pieces every year, and you’ll have them forever.” —Phyllis L.

“You don’t need nearly as many clothes as you think you do.” —Jaclyn W.
