They say that age is just a number. Youth and adulthood are determined by your disposition and outlook in life. I just turned 25 recently but I feel like I'm still 18 - not that I am immature or anything of the sort (though I do have my childish moments), but because I feel young and I want to live like I'm young. 25 is still pretty young though, right?
For the past 25 years of my life, I can say that I have had so many ups and downs; so many controversies to overcome; and, so many battles to win. Despite having many troughs, I believe they have helped me become a better person because of the lessons I have learned from those experiences. And then there are those apexes which I will forever be grateful for allowing me to experience them.
I am only 25 and it is quite obvious that I have yet to experience more things. But one thing I learned from living for 25 years is that life will always be a series for apexes and troughs. One day you're at your peak and the next day you are at the bottom of the ocean. While it may be depressing to have those low points, it is where we become more mature, stronger, and more knowledgeable. Without these low points, we can never appreciate the high points and work harder to maintain it. Life will never be perfect and it will continue to challenge us and give us hurdles to overcome.
