Divya - Incite

Is it just me who gets a little bit more disheartened each time they log into Facebook? I’m quite sick of seeing people I went to school with getting engaged, getting pregnant or getting promoted. It might have something to do with the fact that I am a 19 year-old student who probably doesn’t know what she’s doing next week, let alone with her life.

I’m not sure if I’m alone with this but I genuinely do feel more pressure on my own life by seeing so many others doing SOMETHING with their lives.

For everyone who is silently agreeing with me whilst reading this, I’m here to tell you that this doesn’t have to be the case! CHILL. We are probably all at different stages of our lives at the moment, so why should we be rushing to be or do something? My advice to everyone thinking they should be thinking of settling down or getting married or having children – if you don’t want to, then don’t. The society that we are living in has enough pressures that many of us bow down to already - don’t make this one!

Now I’m not saying that these things can’t be achieved in the future, of course not. And similarly I’m not saying that having children young or getting married young is wrong. I do feel however, there is so much beauty to see in this world, a lot of it we will never be able to see properly. So what reason is there to rush so many aspects of our lives that could eventually happen anyways?

Personally, I would much rather take my time deciding when to undertake these aspects of my life. I would rather get up and go travelling than settle down.

I would rather make memories than make babies. I would rather learn from my mistakes and live and love my life. After all, we are put on this planet to do exactly that
