Being in my mid twenties has been all about me not feeling bad for my weirdness. I used to feel guilt for not wanting to hang out with people, and I would force myself to do it and be miserable. Being unapologetic about who I am is adding to my happiness voyage. I used to make myself socialize cause I thought that is what I was ‘supposed’ to be doing. I now realize that I am supposed to be doing is keeping myself happy
I have also stopped masking my moods. Being honest about being angry or sad, and making my feelings tangible has helped me process and move on from them. Also, realizing that moods and life has a constant and natural ebb and flow is a huge realization for me. Being down is part of being happy. I’m learning to process moments of depression and remember that they, like EVERYTHING, will pass.
Growing up is okay sometimes. I like who I am becoming.
I knew I matured when I realized every situation doesn’t need a reaction. Sometimes you just have to leave people to continue to do the lame shit that they do.
