I’ve often felt that my twenties are the perfect time to be selfish, to do the things that I want, to spend money on whatever I like, to spend time with whoever I please. I have about 6.5 years left in my twenties and I should be making decisions that will make my life better. Right?
The only issues that come with that kind of selfishness is guilt and fear. Guilt for making your whole world about you. Fear that you’re not making the right decisions, or the fear in applying for a new job or trying something new, or the fear that after being selfish for however long you’ll end up alone and not happy at all. Is there some kind of balancing act that I’m unaware of? Some secret formula to making the best out of your twenties, while being a teeny bit selfish? Or is the game plan to not think so much and just tinker with shit? I have probably the best support system in the world (family, friends, and the boyfriend) who want me to take chances and make my dreams come true, is it selfish to just do what they all think I’m capable of?
While I sat up last night and wondered how much selfishness is acceptable and in which ways I should be selfish, I turned on the T.V (a rare thing for me since the T.V. in my room isn’t even plugged in) and watched The New Girl followed by The Mindy Project.
P to the S, The Mindy Project is actually my new favourite show! She is hilarious!
While I didn’t get any life-changing advice from Jess or Mindy or Schmit or Nick, I decided that I need to make decisions that are right for me in that moment and I guess that’s all any person can really do. That, and spend time with great people (or dogs) who make you smile.
