What you should know if you are in your 20’s from people in their 30’s

kura news01

Hold on! Turning thirty is not the end of the world, but some people believe that life after thirty seems to move faster and that there are some things you should know before you reach the big three.

Life may not be that difficult in your twenties; you may be healthier and more energetic, and your body may not have been through much to the point where it wants to give up on you.

However, you will not be 20 forever. We spoke with several people in their thirties who seem to believe that life moves quickly and that there are some things you should think about before embarking on a new phase of your life..

Be more cautious

“Not everyone you meet will be a nice person.”

We have a naive approach to life in which we easily trust strangers and believe that everyone we meet has good intentions for us. This is due in part to the fact that we have not had such a deceptive experience… Yet!

Uwimana Fortune, 34, believes that being young comes with naivety, which she advises people to avoid at all costs.

Be yourself but know the limits

“Being yourself does not mean that all logic is lost.”

People nowadays want to be themselves and feel like themselves, which is a good thing, but Uwimana believes you must also remember to be principled and rational.

“Some decisions you make can have an impact on you whether you want it or not,” she explained.

Be more kind to others

“There’s this thing that people frequently overlook.”

Rutayisire Aimable, 32, believes she could have benefited from being kind to others even if you don’t get anything in return.

“I think being more kind to others is something we overlook, but sometimes life shows you that you will need people in whatever you are doing,” he said, adding that there is a difference between being kind and being overly trusting.

Be opinionated, don’t be manipulated

“Because you are young, people feel obligated to manipulate you.”

Rutayisire believes that young people can be manipulated at times. “They don’t have enough experience, and they don’t always realize they’re being manipulated,” he explained.

The key, he explained, is to be extremely opinionated and principled. It is difficult to persuade someone who is set on their own goals.

Mind your circle

“Tell me about your friends, and I’ll tell you about yourself.”

The proverb suggests that like-minded people stick together, but Umurerwa Angelique, 33, believes it is critical to be mindful of your circle.

“The people you hang out with in your twenties are likely to influence you,” she says. Depending on who they are, they may be beneficial to you or detrimental to your future.”

Believe what they do, not what they say

“Do not let your own expectations blind you.”

Umurerwa Angelique, 31, believes that young people have unrealistic expectations when it comes to friendships and relationships.

She stated that one must be knowledgeable about both, noting that it is better in both cases to “believe what people do rather than what they say.”

Seek many opportunities as much as you can

“The more you look for them, the more they find you.”

Burasa Octave, 37, believes that opportunities do not come by chance. Sometimes you just have to get up and look for them.

“You will not always have as many opportunities in life. You must seek them out and take advantage of them as much as possible.”

Get more experience

“Make use of your experience.”

According to Burasa, many people underestimate the value of gaining diverse experience while still young. However, he believes that leveraging experience can be beneficial.

“The experience you gain along the way will teach you things that you will use for the rest of your life,” he said, adding that young people should value their experiences and gain them in a variety of fields.

Take more risks

“You don’t want to be sorry.”

Ngoga Christophe, 37, says he wishes he had taken more risks in his early and late twenties and that he sometimes wonders what could have been.

“You have to take more risks, believe me, living a risk-free life is good, but you don’t want to spend the rest of your life wondering what you could have become or where you would have been,” he said.

Remember, life does not stop at 30, but isn’t it better to learn from those who have gone before us?
