What has been your best decade thus far: Your teens? Your twenties? Your thirties or forties or beyond?
I would probably say my twenties. It was without a doubt the decade that forced me to grow the most. It was also the decade that taught me quite a lot and provided a number of experiences both positive and negative, but experiences that I needed to have in order to grow and mature as a person.
As a result I feel that having those kind of experiences in my early twenties has given me more ‘life experience’ than some of the others who are around my age. Especially those who spent their twenties living with their parents, I find them to be quite ‘sheltered’ in terms of certain aspects of life and adulthood, because they haven’t had to endure the same kind of trials and hardships you do when you move out of home and strive to be independent.
But who’s to say that my thirties won’t turn out to be better – I can use everything that I learnt in my twenties and apply it to my thirties to avoid as much bullshit and drama as possible and just focus on myself rather than all the other dramas going on around me.
So let’s revisit this in another 9 years hehehe.
