“I’ve finally learned how to accept myself, despite going through years of insecurity and low self-esteem.”

BEING Young & Twenty means a lot of things.

It means moving out of the house you’ve always called home. It’s making decisions like getting married, starting a family, and finding a career. It’s sorting out your bills and dealing with responsibilities.

Being the pessimistic teenager I was, I was scared.

“What should I expect from being 20?”

I since discovered the answer to my own question.

BEING Young & Twenty doesn’t always mean deadlines, mortgages or what day the bins go out. It means maturing. It means making mistakes and learning from them. It means spending time with your family and friends, and making sure you’re happy.

I’ve grown a lot since I turned 20. I’m happier than I was during my adolescence.

I feel free.

I’ve made mistakes and I’ve learned from them. I’ve learned how to accept myself, despite going through years of insecurity and low self-esteem.

I don’t know how the next 10 years will go. No one does.

BEING Young & Twenty is about having the time of your life.

So, live. Write a story worth telling.
