Twenties are shaky and blurry and you get wise as you age. Here are 7 important life lessons learned from my twenties that will help anyone to reaffirm their believes in themselves.

Do you remember how your twenties were? I do, I was in college looking for new friends, trying to fit into the system, prioritising studies over dance (I was a classical dancer). Basically, I was not sure what I was doing rather, what I should do. These are genuine questions every twenty something has, sadly no constructive answers available for them. I have come a long way from the shaky and indecisive twenties. So why not share some important life lessons learned from those shaky and blurry twenties.

But first let me share a glimpse of my twenties.

How were my Twenties?

  1. I was in college St. Xaviers, Kolkata doing an honours on Sociology
  2. I had made great friends for life – we’re still a group & pick up from where we left
  3. Multimedia, digital art, animation became my interest and I did a diploma in multimedia too along with my honours. I was a day scholar at my college and an evening student in multimedia. Yes it was hectic!
  4. Shifted to Bangalore to do my Post Grads in Media Studies
  5. Started living away from family for the first time – in fact shared my room with someone for the first time and picked up some life skills
  6. Made another set of friends for life
  7. Internships in – Indian Express as a journalist, NGO as a health worker
  8. Joined work in one of the biggest FMCG brands one day after my final exam
  9. Yes there were relationships – let’s not go there
  10. I was 45 kgs when I landed in Bangalore.
  11. At 25 I married, started my blogs, got published in 3 books

me as a twenty yr old

Yes, it was important to share that point #10 because I don’t look like that anymore and I am pretty upset with me to give into junk food and ruining everything good I had in the body!

Now let me share some of the best life lessons learned from my twenties that I can reflect on now.

7 Important Life Lessons Learned from my Twenties

important life lessons . learned from twenties

#1 Life Lessons Learned – It doesn’t matter what others say

Pursue your dreams no matter what everyone says. Do the practical things your heart wants – because you live once, there’s no guarantee you are getting born again to do that. If you want to color your hair red, do it. You want to take a solo trip around the world – if you can fund it – do it.

This is a lesson learned hard – IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT OTHERS WILL SAY. Be good, be kind, be compassionate, but be smart, think about yourself too. Get rid of the people who have to butt into your decisions (well you can’t get rid of parents, if they are doing that though) but negotiate wisely.

#2 Life Lessons Learned – You Need to Learn to say NO

This is something I have learnt from my work place. You know when you are young and have joined work you want pleases bosses and you are willing to go at any lengths to get work done.

Working late nights

Being EXTREMELY accommodating with other team members

Skipping breakfast to attend the morning meeting

Skipping lunch to finish the presentation

Working on weekends

STOP DOING THAT.

YOU DON’T NEED TO PLEASE EVERYONE.

Appraisals are not dependant on how many lunches you have skipped, or how many weekends you have worked. No one remembers the presentation when you are 80. Take care of yourself.

#3 Life Lessons Learned – Hard Work & Smart Work

Yes, hard work pays off. But don’t just work hard – work smart. Gain new skills if you want to do good in your career. There’s no shortcut to knowledge. Keep short goals in life, like monthly goals on learning a new software. Read books on life, motivation, personal finance.

There’s always a scope for skilled people. Even if you quit your corporate job, you can be financially independent if you are skilled and know how to get work done.

smart

#4 Life Lessons Learned – More Money ≠ More Happiness

More money doesn’t mean more happiness. Everyone has that urge to EARN MORE, or get MORE MONEY to meet the lifestyle you have chosen for yourself. Material things are important, no doubt, but with money comes responsibility. Instead of having the WANT for everything, try to figure out the NEED.

Find out what makes you happy. Is it the new iPhone that makes you happiest or is it the smile of your family? Instead of focussing on MORE MONEY, try focusing on what makes you HAPPY.

#5 Life Lessons Learned – Do Mistakes, they teach you

Don’t shy away from doing mistakes. They teach you, and they teach you better than anything that’s written in the book. If you don’t do a mistake you won’t know what’s right or what could be right. It is ok to fail – in a venture, in a relationship, in professional setting. You will realize what works only when you have failed.

learn from mistakes life lessons learned

#6 Life Lessons Learned – Speak Out

Being an introvert isn’t the greatest of choices. You need to speak out, for yourself. Communication is the key for any relation – be it between partners, at work, between a husband and wife.

There are fights, arguments, disagreements in every relation. Instead of boiling that inside your head, sit down and talk it out, try to figure out where the problem lies.

#7 Life Lessons Learned – Block Toxic People from your life

There’s no dearth of toxic people who can’t stand seeing you happy. BLOCK THEM FROM YOUR LIFE. Why would you want any negativity in your life. Specially in this age of social media HIT THE BLOCK BUTTON.

I turn a straight face to people who want to spew venom. Believe me I am very good at not getting bothered by these trivial things. As long as I am honest to myself, as long as I am sure of myself I don’t get riled up easily. If I could send an emoji of GIF to the venomous people I would send this 👇

So here are some of the key life lessons learned from my twenties. The last point, however, is true for life. You never know when you will face it. But having the ability to give a straight face is better.

Do you have such life lessons that you might have learnt from a younger self? Why not share with me?

    All the 10 points you have mentioned are well taken. I agree with all of them. I too have been guilty of accommodating too many people, trying to please bosses at the beginning of my career, but I found out it does not help to follow that policy. It is more important to stand up for yourself. Excellent post. #JaiSReads #MyFriendAlexa

    Tina, so precisely put this seven points and it captures the essence of living life, not just in twenties as we progress in our life and career. And you had lovely beginning to your career in big FMCG brand and that too in Bangalore where I started my career I love the place.

    Saying ‘No’ and speaking out where it matters and being assertive in our communication makes a huge difference. Easier said than done. We hesitate to be frank and deny somebody by stating ‘No’. This isn’t being harsh or hurting somebody but being in control of the principles and governing guidelines we all develop for ourselves. Money and Mistake are such an important aspects of our life, living and learning the art of living our life. Money is just a medium and it is a double edged sword, we need it but when we have no control on how much and the moment we more than we need much more…the vicious cycle catches us. Money can play a certain part in making us happy and beyond that it takes the happiness away from us unless we put an anchor on it.

    Life is about learning and the best teacher shall always remain in our life is the teacher of mistake but the only caution we need to exercise is that we don’t repeat the mistakes and then regret. We need to quickly learn from the mistakes as making mistakes repeatedly cost us heavily. We get so obsessed with work, it is the hard work that drives us initially and then if we don’t shift to smart working we become slave to hard work and others take advantage of us.

    The shift is vital to healthy life.

    The people around us makes our life better provided we have the right set of people with us and negative people will add to our misery and make things bad worse with us, the faster we recognize and put them away, the better is our life. And that is a big task by itself.

    First of all you are fabulous the way you write, express and look. Further, I agree with 6 points of yours. I have to disagree yet agree about introverts and communication. Yes, communication is essential and I feel introverts to share their views. However, introverts are often misunderstood and their views are flatly ignored. Guess, at times you have to be loud to say your words.

    An apt list Tina I concur with your thoughts – one more thingI would like to add is “I know money is not necessarily equal to happiness ” but they way I look at it is – life is miserable without money too. I have seen very hard days as a kid and though we stuck to each other as a family, we were forever stressed and sad. That made me realise money is indeed important and I would want to be independent financially , make my future secure and who doesn’t like the good things like that glass of wine and the Coach handbag. I feel doubly happy as I have spent the money I earned #MyFriendAlexa #AksReflects

Well, I agree that you need to be bold enough to take out the negatives from your life. Back then I was not strong enough to say no to people I didn’t like. Today, I just back off and walk parallel.

    Firstly, a beautiful blog out here Tina.

    I have crossed the mark of 30 and 20s was all about falling down, picking oneself, learning, unlearning, gain, loss.

    I hope with all these, 30s is filled with wisdom.

    And I definitely would not mind that GIF in real life too!

    Your 20s experience speaks a thousand words!I was kind of an emotional fool in my 20s and I think I have worked on it successfully in my 30s.

    wonderful post and wonderful learnings. I wish I had learnt how to say NO. I am still bad at it and I end up doing unnecessary stuff.

    So relatable. 20s is essentially when you explore the world out there. Quite literally the defining years of one’s life. Precious life’s lessons are learnt.

    Really beautiful messages… I love the way how you discussed about reading books on self help, personal finance… those are so important, especially for women and yet, a lot wouldn’t even consider something like that. Sad but true. I hope reading your blog would turn some women to books they need to be reading.

    High Five Tina. One of those rare posts where I agree with all the points. Yes, I believe in what you wrote. Money is not everything. Smart work is important to grow and also to maintain that work life balance. Saying a No might hurt few but for that sake don’t say yes all the time. Log kya kahenge is what still blocks our mindset and decisions. Getting rid of it can open new possibilities. Blocking toxic people is what I did very early. It is never good to keep them around. I always make sure that communication takes place in any relationship. Most of the times I’ll be the one to initiate the conversation but that’s my choice. Lastly, about making mistakes, I once remember a palm reader or some old guy looking at me and saying that I’m a guy who “Jumps first, thinks late” kind of a person. Yes, he is true!

    I already follow the rule to say NO when things go in opposite direction. These life lessons are very useful whether you are at any stage of life . I wish to go with your point 1 – Go on a world tour !!
