What you quickly learn in your 20s is that there's a big difference between doing something alone and being lonely. Doing something alone means that you're having quality and much-needed "me time." You're finding space to grow, learn, and make memories with the one person who should always be your best friend: you. Over the course of this decade of your life, you realize that having zero regrets at 30 means mastering a few things in life without someone else by your side.
Let's start with the basics. By now, you've probably been told that you shouldn't compare yourself to others. Everybody's on their own path and enjoying life in their own way, including you. Someone you know from high school is about to get engaged, while the other is traveling the world with love and relationships barely on their mind. Your version of your 20s may not be the same, and that's totally OK.
Being able to do some things by yourself will show you that you're creating your life one day at a time. You're living it up in your 20s, while slowly preparing for your 30s — which is closer than it may seem. Get ready by making sure you've mastered doing these nine things alone, right now.
