I’ve been wanting to become an adult ever since i was a kid. I thought that being an adult is such a luxurious thing that a person can have. But as time pass by, I’ve started to have fears and doubts if adulthood is really something that a person can dream of.
It was okay, for me.
No exciting and outrageous experiences. No extraordinary moments, so far. Well, I’m just 21. I haven’t even traveled alone, I haven’t brought my parents to an out of town trip and I haven’t even dated anyone yet.
I think i’m in the process where millennials like me call it ‘adulting’. I’m in the process where we are exploring our passions, voicing out our thoughts, saying what we want and just trying to find our identities. Sometimes millennials are often considered as kids that think that they are entitled, brats or even kids with no dreams for themselves but the context that they put into us makes us feel entitled, entitled to be heard, to be respected as a human being and to be treated as equal as everyone else.
They stereotype millennials as reckless, but I guess recklessness combined with self-acceptance and respect can make a difference. People nowadays doesn’t want to be normal. They want to be unique and one of a kind. I guess, not everyone is open to that kind of concept but I guess all we can do is to guide people who are younger than us and respect people who are older than us. Every opinion matters. We experience different things in life. You may have experienced something that I haven’t so that itself makes you unique.
There is nothing wrong in asking for help or seeking for answers for your curiosity. I think we need to make decisions where you can justify your actions. We need to think carefully because every action is like a continuation of a new level in your life. We might destroy or strengthen our aspirations in life.
Don’t think that we are entitled to be accepted by everyone. Keep in mind, you cannot please everyone but as long as you know you are making something that is good for yourself without harming anyone. You can do it. Just believe in yourself.
Well, I guess that’s all for today. Till my next thoughts.
