Life as a twenty-something is a lot tougher than we’d probably like it to be, particularly in the year 2019. Jobs may not be the hardest thing to find, but try finding a job that’ll pay a reasonable living wage and allow you to save for things like your retirement.
The pressure twenty-somethings face from dealing with uncertainties like these are taking a toll, as evidenced by these tweets.
In this list, you’ll find lots of complaints. That’s right, we complain. We complain to our friends who are also in their twenties because they’ll listen and understand what we’re going through. When we are finished complaining, we eat and we sleep, and then we eat and sleep some more.
Honestly, it all boils down to this… we’re tired AF, and we don’t know what’s next. Here are some of the best tweets we could find to help us cope with the mess we face daily as twenty-somethings.

Being in your 20s means, being tired at 8pm and sleeping… and waking up at 9 am the next day. 🤦🏻♀️ #OldSoul— crybaby walker (@iinsaaniittyy) September 14, 2018

As I go through my 20s, the importance of actively forging and investing in friendships that can withstand time and distance rather than spreading myself too thin by socializing randomly just becomes more and more clear.— ✨Shubheksha ✨ (@ScribblingOn) September 16, 2018
I just love being in my 20s. Just a whole decade of being in my physical prime and mental rock bottom. What a dynamic.— Jenny (@jenny_rago1) June 18, 2019
