If we were to understand how we could be more comfortable in our own skin, our hang-ups wouldn’t seem so daunting and we’d get through our issues a lot quicker.
Unfortunately, whether we’re in our teens or in our twenties, it’s not always easy for us to understand the significance of our twenties in our teens and the significance of our thirties in our twenties. Even when we hear other people’s stories from people in that higher age group, we cannot always equate our now experiences to their stories.
Unfortunately, our thoughts and feelings as teenagers usually follow us through into our twenties, until we learn to change how we feel about ourselves. Perceptions can let us down at any age, but if we learn to be okay with ourselves, we will always see ourselves positively and that will have a marked effect on our thoughts and our life at any age.
The key is inner calm and learning to change our perceptions so that we let go of our emotional and physical issues. We cannot constantly continue to blame the age thing; that were expected to go through all of those years before we come through the other end being more accepting of ourselves. Unfortunately, society dictates the way we’re expected to feel that isn’t how it works, but that’s how we think it works.
Accepting ourselves has to come much earlier than that. We cannot wait to get into our thirties to get rid of our hang-ups. But once we are more accepting, any age or decade will come and go without a hitch. It is a mind-set thing.
