With age comes wisdom. There are so many things people could have never prepared for without knowing beforehand.
According to a recent online discussion, here are the best things older generations can tell people in their 20s.
Your Life Doesn’t Need To Be One Long Narrative
People often think life is about building a story from beginning to end. The happy moments in your life don’t need to be connected. There’s no need to compare our lives to a movie; we need to just live it to the fullest.
Life Isn’t Short; It’s Really Long
The famous Chris Rock quote should serve as a reminder. Is life fragile? Yes, but it’s not as short as we may realize. We don’t have to kill ourselves trying to do it all.
It’s Never Too Late To Start Over
One person mentions how, in their 20s, they thought it was too late to start a new career or a relationship. They thought they were locked on the track they had set for themselves.
In reality, that’s not the case. It’s never too late to settle down, start a family, or change careers. It’s never too late for now.
Maintain Your Friendships
We’ve built friendships from our core years into adulthood. We need to make sure we hold on to them. Sticking with people through all the highs and lows in their lives is rewarding.
Money Isn’t Everything
Money can’t buy happiness, even if it can buy a lot of things that make you happy. It won’t listen to your problems, it won’t keep your weight in check, and it won’t leave you fulfilled. Does it put you in an advantageous place in life? Yes, but it’s not everything. Don’t sacrifice your health for a paycheck.
Don’t fret about the little things in life because they’re inconsequential at the end of the day. There’s no need to get overly angry at minor inconveniences.
Kindness Is Not A Weakness
It’s important to know that the older you get, the more of a man you become. Being kind is worth it in the long run. Humility will serve you better than price; cruelty is a fool’s game.
Don’t Go Into Debt By Portraying A Certain Image
An important tip in today’s day and age. Living a certain lifestyle comes at a cost. There’s no need to go into debt just because influencers seem to be living their best lives. If you can’t afford it, that’s okay. You’re still able to live your best life on a budget.
Taking care of your body is important because it won’t be 20 forever. Those bad habits you may be used to will eventually catch up. Eat healthy and exercise; your body will thank you.
Start Saving For Retirement
The earlier you start saving, the sooner you can retire and enjoy the rest of your lives. It’s never too early to start a 401K and stash money away.
Figure Out What’s Most Important In Your Life
The sooner you figure out what’s most important, the better. You can prioritize things to support the things and people you love most.
Use Up All Of Your Vacation / Sick Time From Work
You have paid time off for a reason. Make sure you use it because you’ll never get it back. Take the time out for yourself; the breaks from the daily grind will be worth it in the long run.
