To Whom it May Concern;
One of the more difficult and unspoken things about being the youngest and or trying to find your way in life as a responsible and independent adult is a little obstacle called "perfection". You say to yourself that you are going to pay all the bills in a timely manner. You're going to get the perfect job that pays enough money to never have to worry about expenses. You're going to have a car that never breaks. You're going to magically turn into this considerate, charitable and elegant human being.
No. Not gonna happen.
There are pitfalls for everyone in this world. We can forget things, be anxious about things, scared to do things. We are only human. And no matter what image of idealism you have in your head, you are never going to fit it perfectly. The best thing for you to do is shape your idealism around your own personality and keep it as realistic as possible. You know the achievable things that you can change about yourself, you also know the things that you never want to give up. Wearing sweatpants in the middle of the day for a week straight... annoying the heck out of your roommates because you love singing... being incredibly weird...
You need to Embrace you for who you are, improve on the things that you can and accept everything that comes your way. Good luck.
