I've disappointed my 20yr old self!
My younger self would be so disappointed in who I turned out to be. I never wanted to be a parent, hated the mundane drivel of the standard routine my life now has, had no desire to be living in one place for more than 5 years. I loved being able to move around; new places, new experiences, new faces. My 20yr old self wouldn't recognise me today. I have no drive, no passion (except when I'm doing something I love, but then that comes to an abrupt end as soon as I remember where I am, and my current situation). I feel like I'd embarrass my younger self, no end.
But I can change this. As my child gets older (I had my child in my early 20s), I'm going to start putting in place things that I would be proud of by the time I reach my mid 40s. I've felt trapped for so long. My 40s are going to be my independence, my freedom; a new life! I feel optimistic about my future, but so depressed about right now.
