27 Things I’ve Learned By My 27th Birthday

Today is my 27th birthday. Along with the well wishes comes a lot of introspection. I find myself asking questions such as “what do you have to show for your 27 years?”, “where are you now?”, and “what will yo do before you hit 30?” with more seriousness and even melancholy than usual.

You Are Enough

You are enough, plain and simple.

You will go through times where this feels like a lie, where it feels like you are lacking in certain areas of your life. You might feel like you aren’t worthy or deserving enough for that house or apartment you want to be living in, for that promotion, for that really attractive guy or girl to want you, to be loved and respected by friends and family. These are the real lies.

Goodbyes

Saying goodbye might very well be the most difficult experience we humans go through in life. We say goodbye to life situations, places, things, to friends and loved ones, to our beloved.

Goodbyes come with transitions. You are moving from a state of being where what, or who, you are saying goodbye to was a regular part of. You are moving to a new state of being without that person, place, or thing.

Wellbeing Through Forgiveness

I have struggled with being able to let go. I would cringe when suddenly remembering something someone else, or even I, did or said that led to awkwardness, embarrassment, or hurt. I would lay awake for hours at night with the memories of these “incidents” spiraling out of control. I would use them as concrete evidence supporting my theories of unworthiness and social awkwardness.

There is No Peace Through Anger

We live in political society dominated by tribalism. The two party system in the United States has fed into an already natural human propensity to view life as “us versus them”. Recent years have especially exacerbated this point with politicians locking in on the issues that have the highest likelihoods to be divisive and garner the attention and votes they need so that the party (and the individual politicians) remain in power.

What this has led to, along with increasing attention to inhumane acts against minorities domestically and abroad, is an atmosphere of outrage and anger among the right and the left.

The purpose of this article is to explore the idea that “an angry generation can’t bring peace”.
