I’m in my twenties now. It’s a stage in life where one should be young, wild, free and living their days like their last.
Instead, I spend my day off wasting time and being lazy. I have a full-time job Monday through Friday. After work, I either head off to the gym or spend happy hours with my co-workers. On weekends, I spend half of the day sleeping and the other half watching series, and reading. My life right now is an easy routine that I can’t get out of.
This is a time where I should be working on myself, taking risks, dating, partying, trying new talents, travelling to a new city alone,….
But the world is getting harder and harder to live in with more obstacles that threaten one’s life and places fear in our parents’ hearts. I guess living with my parents and their rules, and the requirement to take permission to decide is my obstacle. Also, being the only daughter left at home with them leaves them more attached and harder to let go, and the only way out is to leave and live alone abroad.
It’s a period in my life that is worth remembering and is about to disappear very soon.
I’m afraid I’ll leave a little too late and miss out on that part of my life.
