How long did it take you to find out who you are, what you want from life, and what your values are? How old were you when you finally felt comfortable in your own skin, confident of who you are and what your place in this universe is?
I had a conversation with a friend on the weekend, where I admitted I looked forward to being in my 30s because apparently that’s when one really gains an understanding and acceptance of who one is and what one loves (I am practicing proper English).
The feelings of being lost, aimless, and clueless haven’t been improving as I’ve grown older. On the contrary, the older I get the more panicked I feel that I don’t know myself well enough.
So what I want to know is this: when did it become clear for you? Was there a defining, light bulb moment, or was it a gradual understanding? Has it become clear? Or are you still where I am, wondering what it is that you are passionate about, where your life is headed, what you want, and how to get it?
