Normalize Cutting Ties With People When You’re In Your 20s

People grow apart. It's just the way of life.

When we were kids, we used to plan what we wanted to be, the places we want to visit, and the goals we want to achieve. But as we grow up, uncertainty grows in our hearts too, confusing us about whether we should carry on with our chosen plans or not.

20 is an age when you are in constant search for yourselves.

Seeking identity, goals, and paths are all part of being in your 20s. But one thing we all know for sure is we are just simply frightened about making the wrong choices and regretting it for a lifetime.

In the journey of finding yourself, there will be people you will lose along the way. Sure, you used to believe that these people would help you be the best version of yourself, but sometimes, you’ll turn out to be wrong. There are times when your friends no longer connect with you—some of them are even the ones you consider your best friend.

It’s hard to cut ties with those people, especially when you’ve been through so much with them. Just remember that you’re still young and losing a few people who no longer help you grow is okay.

That doesn’t mean you have to downright say that you’re cutting ties with them. Sometimes, just letting yourselves grow apart is okay.

Nonetheless, you are young and yet to commit more mistakes.

If the people around you don’t make you feel supported and loved, then please do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time proving them of your worth. So, live your best life, meet new people along the way. Don’t let other people’s journey stop you from growing and reaching your dreams.

Focus on yourself

Being in your 20s is the most confusing stage of your life. Some of your friends could be having their first baby, moving into their own place, getting promoted, or getting married. But you don’t have to be pacing the same way as them. Remember that you have your own journey and you’re not riding in anyone else’s. This your prime year. Live it.
