What it feels like: confusion, high energy, invincibility and vulnerability.
Making Choices and Gaining Experience
Being 20 feels like the beginning of a great adventure, and it is, in a manner of speaking, the beginning of one’s life journey. You will make decisions about continuing your education, career choices, likes and dislikes; your opinions about relationships and political views will start to form. The best thing to do is to be productive in exploring your interests and gaining experience. This period will be mostly trial and error, but that’s a normal part of this growth stage. Embrace it. But instead of it being totally random, with unbridled periods of life where you may make decisions and choices that have consequences you can’t recover from, make it about learning more about you and your life trajectory.
