Being in your twenties is a lot harder than people make it seem, especially in the year 2018. Today, we live in a world where it is difficult to find jobs or to be paid fairly, all while attempting to save for retirement. You can imagine the amount of stress twenty-somethings are going through after being thrust into the scary world ahead.
So, we complain. We complain to our twenty-something-year-old friends, who understand us or anyone else that will listen. And, what do we do when we’re done complaining? We sleep. Then, when we’re done sleeping, we sleep some more.
Basically, we’re just exhausted. Being in your twenties s is exhausting. Here are 30 tweets from some cleverly exhausted young adults that you might enjoy.
It's a scary world, Charlie BrownThe world is a good place, but can also be quite scary. It's natural for a bunch of twenty-something-year-olds to feel terrified of the world around them. And yes, many of us would love to protect ourselves by being in a bubble.
Drama, dramaWe all love a good drama. But when you start to get sick of the drama in your own life, you need a different way to unwind. It's time for television to take a hint and give us some TV shows that are just pure fluff.
It's not their fault
Guys in their 20s have personalities that consist of one or more of the following: lifting weights fantasy sports video games making music— Father Okra (@Father Okra)1537664603.0
PrioritiesAdmit it, you laughed out loud at this tweet. It's true, at least some of your flexibility will go away with old age, no matter how much yoga you do. So enjoy your body before gravity gets to it!
We tend to get out of handOkay, so maybe we panic a little because we are nearing our thirties. But hey, we can't be blamed! Growing up is scary, and some of us can barely make it through the day without panicking. We are trying our best.
We are trying

Grandma and grandpa
I know a lot of people go through their “party stage” in their 20s but is there also a “grandma stage” or is it just me????— Hailey Mays (@Hailey Mays)1537545490.0
The finish lineThe problem with growing up is that the whole world is watching you, waiting for you to do something amazing. News flash world! We are also waiting for the moment when we do something amazing! It may feel like you're running out of time to be successful, but the truth is, there's always plenty of time. Just because we left out teenage years behind us, doesn't mean we have to be full-fledged adults just yet.

Sleep is our favorite part of the day
Being in your 20s means, being tired at 8pm and sleeping... and waking up at 9 am the next day. 🤦🏻♀️ #OldSoul— crybaby walker ♡ (@crybaby walker ♡)1536897910.0
The awkward stageIt's happened to all of us. Sometimes we feel as if we can no longer relate to anyone. The people younger than us are still out partying and the people older than us are getting married or having children. So we just stand there awkwardly, waiting.
Seriously, we're exhausted
When you are in your 20s but Friday’s feel like you are in your 60s! Tired and sleepy at 8pm 😅😅😂😂— Teddy Awa (@Teddy Awa)1537580595.0
No bad vibes!When you become an adult, you want to leave all high school drama behind you. You're are no longer interested in chasing people who don't want to be in your life. Let them stay in the past, we can only go up from here.

Single and ready to not beAs you start to see everyone settle down in their 20s, you might get a little envious. We all just want someone to love.
really really hate being in my early 20s. it’s such a cliche but i’m tired and i just want everything to be figured out— a glazed ham (@a glazed ham)1537473984.0
Life is really, really hardGetting thrown out of school and directly into the workforce is nothing short of traumatic. It messes with your mind. Everyone expects us to be okay, but life is tough! And there are no instruction manuals to follow!

Don't compareSure, some people's lives may seem more successful than yours, but everyone is different. Don't compare yourself, especially when you are trying your hardest. You'll get where you want to be!
Pumpkin spice latte anyone?
being in your early 20s is wanting to travel the world when u can’t even afford to be getting Starbucks daily— hel? (@hel?)1537103717.0
Take it easyIf you are lucky enough to have parents who want to help you, take advantage. But thank them endlessly, and remind yourself that not everyone has that kind of support.

School is still badNot everyone in their twenties is in the workforce. Some of us are still trying to get through school. And kudos to you guys, for fighting the good fight, considering the fact that school only gets harder the longer you're in it.
Love yourselfYes, we are tired. But between school and work, make sure you take some time to smell the roses. Remember who you are, and figure out the things that make you smile. You are only in your twenties once.
Not having kids
Being in your 20s with no children is a real bliss— 💎 (@💎)1537065031.0
But to those who do have kids...GOOD FOR YOU! SERIOUSLY! That is hard stuff, and the fact that you have it so together that you are able to take care of another human being is AMAZING! Good job! But don't forget to take a nap because we know you're still tired.
No more late night clubbing
Going to a club in your late 20s is great if you want to scream at teens for being too damn loud— pops✨ (@pops✨)1537656595.0
