“Hopefully by the time I am 30, I will have my life figured out. Though I don’t think anyone can ever really have his or her life figured out. Every year we are constantly changing and growing. When I hit 24, I realized I had outgrown a lot of people, and this was really hard for me to accept because I had this picture in my head that I was going to be best friends with these people, or I am going to spend the rest of my life with this individual. Some people are not used to change, and sometimes when I act a certain way people ask me, ‘Why are you acting this way? You never used to be this way,’ and it brings me back to this quote that says, ‘Watch out for the used-to people,’ because they are the people who are used to a secluded lifestyle, they are stuck in their way of thinking and they intentionally prevent themselves from growing. The best advice I can give to people is: enjoy your life; you should never be apologetic for who you want to be and who you truly have been all along.”
