Adulting at 26 So Far

With my recent ganap in life and having only a month before I turn another year older, I was once again compelled with a thought that I think, helped me feel better.

So if you are curious as to how it is being 26 or 27, here’s what I can say so far. I know it will be different for everyone but whatev.

  1. Adulting is never over, never easy and there’s no getting used to. It’s as if you’re being able to grasp things when all of a sudden, life throws you a curved ball. That’s how adulting is. Okay ka na pero biglang hindi pala. Ganon lang.
  2. You will go through several emotional and mental breakdowns but you will be okay. Every once in a while, we need to cry and stress ourselves, doubt ourselves a little so we can figure out that we are capable of being calmed under pressure, strong and efficient. Momma didn’t raise a weak ass bitch and we want to make our momma proud. Kailangan akala mo muna hindi mo kaya pero sarili mo lang din ang magpupush sayo para marealize mo na kaya mo. Kaya mo naman pala talaga.
  3. You can’t sulk over stuff way too long because trust me, THINGS. NEED. TO. GET. DONE. no matter how hurt or unstable you are, there are things that needs to get done like taking care of your dog, paying the bills, going to work etc etc. Hindi ka pwedeng maiyak iyak lang sa isang sulok dahil ang dami mo pang kailangang gawin at hindi yun magagawa kung iiyak ka lang at iintindihin ang mga problema mo sa buhay.
  4. There are a ton of things that you would have to do alone and once you have done it, you’ll love it and realize that well, you now prefer doing things alone. Heh. Hindi habang buhay may makakaladkad ka na makakasama sa errands mo at kung ano pang ganap.
  5. When you feel stuck, trust the process. You’re not stuck, you just need to be patient.

So ikaw, you can do it!

  1. ang positive. i love it 🙂

    i agree to everything. especially #3. my last few months in my last job were painful. i literally had to go to the cr first every freaking morning to cry then gather myself up because work must be done. we get stronger everyday, though. the pain is always worth it, I guess.

    I don’t believe we’re stuck. i don’t believe we’re lost. Just always on our way. Slowly but moving. Survivng.

  2. Oh my goodness, friend! I can totally relate to this. Well, maybe because magkaedad naman kasi talaga tayo. 😀 But number 5 though, I LIKE IT. I like it a lot! Palong palo sakin ang numero singko, para akong nasampal nun eh. 😀 Thanks for that.

  3. Nung 27 ako dalawan na junakis ko e haha! Bet ko yang #3. Alam mo yung tipong damang dama mo ang bigat at cryola ka ng bongga pero kailangan mong pumasok sa work at ipanalangin na sana hindi halatang mugto ang mata mo pagpasok haha! Kapag naman nanay na e laging prio ng mga bata ang una at ng pamilya hehe.
    Masaya na mahirap maging adult. Minsan naiinggit ako sa mga tropa ko na single pa kasi parang they have all the time in the world to do everything na walang iniisip na bunaknak pero I erase yung mga ganun sa isip ko kasi iba iba ng sitwasyon talaga. Ayan, happy adulting haha!

    1. Totoo teh! Ako nga kahit single at walang anak feeling ko anak ko yung kapatid ko hahaha ang struggle pero lagi lang natin iisipin na iba iba tayo ng pinagdadaanan, Kung tingin natin mas okay yung buhay ng iba kaysa satin, hindi totoo kasi meron naman din tayo na wala sila. Parang ganon haha.

  4. Fight lang. Ilang taon ka man, fight ka lang. Ang buhay lagi ka bibigyan ng mga challenges kaya dapat maging strong tayo. Dapat matuto tayo tumayo, bumangon, at lumaban. Mahirap at nakakapagod…pero ano pa ba choice natin? It’s just a bad day not a bad life.
