Your early 20’s are a strange time. Old enough to know better but young enough to not really know how to do it right.

I recently had my five year class reunion and while talking to a number of my classmates said they do not feel equipped to be an ‘adult.’ These are people with bachelor’s degrees and many with children. How are 20-something year-olds joining the workforce with little idea of what to do now?

I was fortunate enough to know what I wanted to do while I was still in high school, for many they go straight to college with no idea how they want to spend the rest of their lives because that is what was expected of them.

While I knew what I wanted to do after high school, I would say I’m a far from having my life together. I saw a post online the other day that compared being in your early 20’s to playing a game that you skipped the tutorial on. You kind of understand the mechanics but not enough to feel comfortable. Basically we are a younger version of Ozzy Osbourne, shuffling around, mumbling to ourselves and constantly in a state of confusion.
