Whether you are over 19, 19 or just about to go through the heavenly gates of 19, do know that this is a must read for you.
19 is that age that officially helps you pack up the bags of your teenage years.
So many 19s got you wondering what the big deal about 19 is anyway. I will tell you with joy in my heart.
19 is that age that officially helps you pack up the bags of your teenage years and translate you into the real world. Like you know! The adult life where everything goes down. The very place where you begin to think about that dream career, how to make world sized sums of money, lush lifestyles to enjoy life, a beautiful woman/wife by your side and maybe, even children of your own.
Now, there are 5 things that are very peculiar to the 19th year in any and every real man’s life. Get ready for the ride; we’re going through this journey, together.
#1 The Freedom Struggle
At 19, you would have found yourself demanding that level of independence from your parents or guardian. You cannot just afford to stay ‘colonized’ for so long.
However, how you gain your independence makes all the difference for a healthy relationship with your parents or guardians much later in life. Some earn their freedom by having lived responsibly and asserting their ability to handle issues and challenges maturely. Others simply rebel. “Rebel men” ~ kidding.
#2 Glimpse of The Future
By 19, the ideal man has had a glimpse of what he wants to do with his life. He may have taken on many names, put himself into lots of things, all in a bid to know exactly which road to take. At this stage, he rarely would have life all figured out but at least, he knows what he wants. He is beginning to think as a man.
#3 Little Drops of Hustle Make A Mighty Money Bank
A lot of men interviewed during the course of the survey on life at 19 admitted having started earning income by then. Some had taken on jobs like writing gigs, coding, web design and others have served as interns at companies. Whichever it was, there was money rolling, walking or even creeping into the account.
#4 First Romantic Relationship
A gentleman must have had his first romantic relationship. Really, it is not usually so serious or deep. It is most times, as basic as tasting your meal before having it. Amazingly, relationships gone sour at this time seem to be the major heartbreaks guys experience, even with the non-seriousness.
Thank Mr. Naiveness for the deception our dream men face(d).
#5 A Clique of Life
At 19, you would have had an inner circle of friends whose friendship normally may last a lifetime. One or two may pull out depending on the number and change in beliefs but usually, most of your clique members will stay through.
So, there you have it; 5 things that must have happened by the time you were 19. Do you have more to share? They may be personal or trends you’ve observed in your nineteen-year-old male friends.
