Advice for Young adults

B.R.Hope (@brobp2) 8 years, 10 months ago

I love to seek advice when it comes to life experiences. I was hoping others would like to share some advice for young adults like myself. Something in the \”things to do before you get old\” category of life experiences. Also negative experiences one should avoid. Thank You

Ask your self what you want to do, then do it. That is the important advice. Don’t avoid experiences others tell you are negative experiences, do them if you want. You can’t learn from other peoples mistakes, despite what they might tell you. You need your own negative experiences. The only things I would suggest avoiding are; rape, murder, heroin. Have fun :D

@brobp2, To believe something is to accept a truth presented to you from outside of you as your own truth. Of course it’s not. Go by what you know. Follow your gut. If you’re not born with it, it’s not yours. Anytime you hear, “you must”, “you have to”, “you should” and the like, leave the room. Be you. Not anyone or anything else’s idea, opinion or dictate. Travel. Join the Peace Corps and blast your life for 2 years. See where you are at the end of that gig. Don’t live from fear as a base. Repeat: do not live from fear as a base. Peace, Love & Light ~ ricky

@chekovchameleon, thanks for those good words. I guess negative experiences arent so negative after all.

@rickyferdon, thanks a lot sir. After reading your response, i have looked into the peace corps. I must say it sure does look interesting. Is their any other programs worth looking into that you might recommend?

@brobp2, Peace Corps are actually pretty difficult to get into. I did a lot of research a month or two ago when I got very into the idea of joining. They have AmeriCorps, it’s similar and easier to start with and I don’t think you have to sign on for 2 years. There are also many different missionary trips available.

@brobp2, If you have grown up comfortably and you have a house and generous amounts of food and water, I think it is extremely important that you visit a country where they have next to nothing. I mean somewhere with no running water, no electricity, no toilets, etc. Every human being should experience both the paradise and the hell, especially if you have a choice in the matter.

You will notice that, despite the poverty, people are still people, happy people. They can still be content living in nothing and they can survive living in nothing. We privileged people need to see that so we can strip the image that these “materials” mean anything in our lives, because they don’t.

@brobp2, Habitat for humanity Global Village offers some pretty amazing trips to under-developed countries. You help build for a few days and then you live and experience their lives.
