I thought life was very confusing, during my 20s.
It too me 30 years to find myself.

So you're now 60?

You said that " life was very confusing, during my 20s" and that "It too(sic) me 30 years to find myself"

So if you were confused at 30, and it took 30 years to find yourself, then I assume you're 60.

I mean, it took me from birth to 30 years old to find myself.
Hope that clears up any confusion.

Now it all makes sense.

So what were you so confused about in your 20's?

So what were you so confused about in your 20's?

I wondered, if I am going to get what I want out of life and how would I get it.
I had the confidence to move to other countries, all by myself, but still things like getting qualifications and a good job seemed daunting. Everybody else seemed to be sailing through their post high school training and education.

When I was 25, I wondered how other people of my age seemed to have met their ideal partner and had kids, while I didnt seem to be able to even get a relationship which would last.

And all through my 20s, I wondered how others seemed to be able to get some stability in their lives. Not everybody my age was subject to the whims of moody landlords, tempremental employers etc.

And I had the situation where I had to learn to cope with being different from other people. How to handle the critisism, and disapproval. I also had to handle the admiration, which is not as easy as one would think, if one has not experienced it.

At 30, everything just seemed to smooth itself out. Suddenly, I realised, that the reason I dont have all that stability etc is that I dont actually want it. In fact everything I had done in my life was anti stability. I started to accept that I buzz on adversity, variety and change and one can only have a certain amount of stability if one insists on living like that.
