There’s something so cynical about being in your twenties

I’m not sure whether it’s the sarcasm that spans across the Internet but the thing I’m certain of is that we feel the same emotions . Right now politics and ethics are the core of sarcasm because it feels like every man and women for themselves .People are stubborn and not open to conversation and to put it simply some people are beyond speaking to. It’s kinda of funny that we as a generation live all over the world with different world views but we experience the same things. We laugh at many of the same things , we scream at many of the same things and it occurred to me that our emotions have brought us closer. Maybe this is why twitter thrives you can instantaneously share your thoughts or a joke and even tell a story using a thread and then get feed back from people who agree with as well as people who disagree with you. When you tell a story you can meet people who have experienced things the same as you or similar to you. The cynicism doesn’t stop with politics or ethics , if you haven’t scrolled through twitter and read the opinions on dating and why both men and women are trash then we should trade twitter feeds. All of these tweets stemming from broken hearts that haven’t been mended. For those of us who are attempting to plan for our future and have a retirement plan in order to retire with out worry and send our kids to school without debt . I assure you we have many things to say about social security and the national debt average . So to my twenty somethings that feel like we have nothing to look forward to, I want you to know that trouble dont last always and as we age we heal , we’re only getting better with time and we’re just getting started. Remember to breathe. – My

Is this a pre mid life crisis ?

I’m 24 years old and I am mentally in this place where my career is slowly settling into place and it seems my mind has moved on to other things. Suddenly there’s this desire to fall in love and have a family, suddenly I can hear this invisible clock ticking . Most of the time the ticking is minimal and only apparent when mind wanders to the thought of having a significant other. However when I’m invited to a wedding ,baby shower or engagement dinner that sound of a clock ticking turns into my heart pounding and then I’m suddenly overcome with worry. It feels like I’m running out of time , I’m aware that being twenty-four is a commodity to people older than me that love to say “wow, at twenty-four I was at the peak of my wild years , you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t everything”. Sincerely I wish I felt this sentiment , I wish with many fibers of my being that I didn’t see other couples walking with there children and think ” one day soon , I hope”. In saying this I’m not saying that my lust or thrill for life is gone , I still want to travel and see the world for all of it’s beautiful chaos but I’d be open to seeing the world with my family instead of alone. My life has taught me many lesson in friendships , relationships and work relations and for me personally it seems like I’m ready to put all that I’ve learned to use. It is with that thought that I can say I’M NOT IN ANY RUSH to get married or have a baby .In my honest opinion these are things worth waiting for and worth putting in the time and effort it takes to sustain them. I don’t feel like my mind is moving to fast I just feel like my hearts in the right place and that in time this will be my reality. So to the people in there 20s having the same thoughts as me , when the time comes we will know and I hope that family life with it’s highs and its lows is everything we dreamed it could be and more. – My
