Your 20's is when life really begins for many people. You have more independence, and you are finding out who you are as a person. With all that in mind, Bustle believes that there are a few lessons everyone should learn while in their 20's.

  • Hard work does not promise success which sounds impossible because we're always told growing up that if you work hard at something that you will win out over those who don't work as hard as you. However, there are so many factors that determine success, and unfortunately, hard work is only one of them.
  • Bad things can happen to good people and, I know, this one is another tough pill to swallow. Not everything will always go your way no matter how good you are. Just because you donated your holiday bonus to charity last year doesn't mean that you will get that promotion this year. I am so, so sorry for that.
  • And good things can happen to bad people because life just is not fair. It's something that you have to learn to accept as an adult though. Other people's lives, good or bad, you have to understand, are not any of your business, no matter how unfair you think it is.

Your 20's is a time for self-discovery, and all you can do is be the best you that you can be.
