The confusing thing about our 20's is that the first time in our lives there aren't set age norms and expectations to rate our success on.

I have friends that own houses, friends renting and friends still living at home with their parents. I've got friends working three jobs, friends who own their own businesses and friends that have never worked a day in their lives. Friends that have graduated university now working their dream jobs and friends still deciding what they're going to do as a career. I have friends that are travelling the world and some that have never even left the country.

I have 6 friends that are parents, 8 friends that are engaged, 7 friends that are married and 2 that are divorced, yet I've still got friends that have never been in a relationship. That's okay too!

A few of my friends have either taken their own lives or had their lives taken by others or by horrific accidents/illnesses, yet some friends have never felt grief strangle their hearts.

See, the thing about your 20's is that there is no right or wrong, no better or worse and most importantly, no-one is better than anyone else. Life isn't a race - we are each on our own path. So, the next time you judge another or compare yourself to someone else, please remember they're doing their best for their own journey, and so are you.
