Still figuring it out

Am I too old to not know exactly what I want to do with my life?

I remember struggling to choose what subjects to study in school when it came to it. I was just 15 back then. Thankfully my school had extra support available to help me choose. An interview and some long questionnaire that would (hopefully) in the end point me in the right direction.

Eventually I believe I chose the subjects that were theoretically a good fit for me. Even though the results were a little ambiguous.

The funny thing is that I had no clue what I wanted to be when I grew up. It was a little stressful as most of my friends were pretty set on what they wanted to do.

20 years on I am still figuring it out.

Don’t think I was  ever really prone to stressing out too much about these things. I have been living life as it comes and honestly I think I am doing a decent job. The truth is that I have been mostly happy with my choices and with what I have done with my life so far.

If you are still figuring it out this might cause you some stress and anxiety. But life is so short. Try not overthink it and just do what makes you happy.

Also try not to compare your life to people around you, especially with what is shared online. Remember that most people will only share the best in their life and maybe some of it isn’t even real.

Are you still figuring it out? Or are you all settled?
