The Complexities of Life

Take Your Time

The Recovering Pessimist: Take Your Time -- Don't let society's expectations dictate how you live your life. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistI was on Instagram the other day and saw a post that asked “If you could give your younger self a piece of advice, what would it be?”

Take your time.

Society still has these standards that dictate that you should work towards career and/or family and have it by a certain time in your life. I somewhat understand why these standards originated, but times have changed, and so have people.

You don’t have to date with the hopes of finding someone to marry.

You don’t have to get married.

You don’t have to have children.

If it happens, it happens.

People won’t understand it. They’ll call you crazy, selfish, and stubborn. It’ll hurt your feelings, but don’t let their words discourage you. In fact, you’ll lose some people along the way, but that happens as you grow.

You got this.
