Why We Didn't Know These Growing Up

There are so many things we wish we had known and understood while growing up. No one ever tells you the hard truths of life. Maybe it's because it's too hard to take in, or maybe it's because it's just something you have to experience firsthand to understand. Here are the things nobody told you while growing up.

1. You're going to spend a lot of time figuring stuff out.

Unless you're one of the lucky few who already knows what their passion is and what you really enjoy, you will be spending a lot of time trying new things and figuring out what you're good at and what you like. Don't be afraid to try new things and fail at them because failing builds character. You have a lot of growing up to do in your 20s, a lot of self-examination and exploration. This is the time you get to know yourself as best as you can – not that you won't change as you continue to get older, but it's definitely a time of self-discovery and finding out what you have to contribute to the world.

2. Don't expect smooth seas.

There will be many challenges and obstacles coming your way. Just try to take life as it comes. If there's a door that is standing wide open for you and another that you're trying to get through by knocking it down, sometimes it's best to take the door that's already open for you. In other words, don't try to be something you're not.

3. Remember change will come.

Life is about change. You cannot avoid that. So all you can do is learn from your mistakes and grow. Let go of things you can't change. Sometimes change will be so painful that you will want to rip your heart out, but you'll be okay if you just hang on and know that no matter what happens, you will be alright.

4. Keep your plans flexible. 

It's good to have an idea of things you want to accomplish and where you want to be a couple years from now, but honestly no one knows what's going to happen tomorrow, let alone 5 years from now. It's fine to make some plans but be flexible and willing to change them. Remember that people change and things happen that will push you in one direction or another.

5. Time is a limited resource.

Nothing lasts forever. Enjoy every moment that you have. Enjoy life and practice being present in the moment because it goes by in a blink of an eye. Always remember that there will be good and bad times. It's important to really enjoy and savor the good moments in life because you'll need those memories to reflect back on when the bad times come.

6. Let go of your expectations.

Expectations ruin everything and most of the time, our expectations are too high for those around us and for ourselves. No one is perfect and nothing is ever going to be perfect. The faster you can learn this and let go of your standards, the easier life will come to you. Expect nothing and appreciate everything.

7. You're only young once. 

Enjoy being young while you still are! Cross stuff off your bucket list while you're young because no one knows how much time you truly have. Don't wait until you're old and may not be able to do the things you really want to experience. Seriously, you may be broke while you're young, but that doesn't matter. You've got time to make money and settle down. The last thing you want to do is look back on missed chances.
