I am not here to brag about how your twenties are the best and yada yada because I believe that every period of life is fun and special in its own way. But I will say this, the younger you are, the slightly better life is because, in terms of worries and stress, generally, the amount is fairly less. Now the thing about the twenties is that it’s the start of your adulthood and officially leaving behind your childhood and teenage years wherein being reckless was more or less acceptable. The twenties are for truly exploring life, building your foundation, gradually developing emotional intelligence and learning to have fun whilst understanding that life isn’t quite easy and basically striking a balance between the two.

Since this is the starting period of your adult life, it’s also the most confusing one in terms of knowing and not knowing how to navigate your life. Important things to do and whatnot.
