Some day, months, years are shitter than others. I've seen it. I've lived it. Things can be going really good. Then lightening strikes your life and its all blown to bits. I never understood what people meant when they talked about turning points in their life. As a kid you just figure things get better as you get older. Sadly I've learned that's not the case.

As a kid you figure nothing could be worse than being a kid. You'll get older and you can do whatever you want. No one will use the excuse that your 'just a kid'. You'll be able to stay up late and do things the older kid are doing. Then your a teenager and you realize that you were wrong as a kid. Being a kid was the easy part. At 16 everything, everyone says to you is wrong. You don't want to hear it. You want to do your thing. Your sick of the rules, of being told no, of all the drama that high school brings. You feel awkward and alone. No one gets it. Your just waiting till gradutaion and the day you turn 18. You just know that college will be better.

Once your in your 20's it's like what the hell was I looking forward to? Not only is college not what you thought it would be but your still not where you thought you'd be. Your struggling financially, emotionally. Weren't our 20's suppose to be fun? Not filled with anxiety and instability. Your not suppose to feel like a massive failure at this age. Your more lost then you were in your teens. How is it possible that everything you thought it was suppose to be was so far from what your living?

It's like every time you think the next stage will be better it's not. Yes we can all agree that this aging thing has perks. I'm still in my 20's but I know people in there 30's, 40's even in their 50's that don't have it figured out. Things still haven't 'fallen into place'. I've seen people almost have it together to have it all taken away. They're left scrambling to pick up the pieces while holding themselves together.

Every stage brings new excitement and freedom. Along with new worries, struggles, and responsibilities. I've learned that your not suppose to have it all together. It's something we want but we'll never achieve it for the simple fact that it's not how life works. You never hit the highest point, theres always more to go. More work that needs to be done. More lessons to learn. I get that none of it sounds ideal. No one wants to be challenged, and working their whole life. You'll always have battles to be fought.

Good thing in every stage there is a silver lining. There will be bright spots in the fog that is life. The good and bad will come and go. You'll be able to catch your breath before you have to push on again. That much I do know. Things can't be bad forever.

We'll never know why we have to live through the bad. Or why our bad was as bad as it was. There is no answer. But one day it will all come together and you'll kinda get it.

  1. This post came to me at the perfect time! I'm having a terrible week, ill, panicking about jobs and money and just life in general but you're right, we aren't always meant to have it all together. Our 20's, especially in the financial state of the world, are meant to be confusing but they are also meant to be some of the best years too!
