Is this true when people say good things happen when you wait?

all my friends are starting there lives having kids and getting engaged its kinda strange to me cause i never thought about any of these things in high school should i be doing the stuff my friends are doing in life by starting a family and finding someone or should i just wait and focus on the things that will get me somewhere and let all fall into place in the end so pretty much im asking has waiting helpped any of you in life and are you happy?

I'm a big advocate of waiting. The right person can come along at any time, any chance meeting but it's amazing how often it happens when people are not looking. I really think love finds you, when it's time, rather than the other way around. Keep your eyes open but just keep doing what you're doing.

Focus on what is important to you. All my friends did the same thing. They all got married and had kids. I didn't. I waited for the right guy and I didn't take the next step in a relationship because that was what was suppose to happen. I got married later then they all did. I am also still married and half of them are not. Follow your heart and gut, and do what is right for you.

To answer your first question: Who knows, we can't exactly say whether it is or isn't.

To answer your second question: For now, focus on what can get you somewhere in life- get a head start. Not everything "falls into place" without some effort. It's great to have fun but you need to work to earn it.

To answer your last question: Yes, things could be better, but overall I'm happy where I am because I've put myself there.

Just do what you need to do to make yourself happy in life (career-wise)...and the other things will most likely fall into place for you along the way. You really can't compare your life to your friends' lives. What makes one person happy does not always make the next person happy.

What's important is that you set priorities and goals in life. Set to achieve them. It gives you purpose and something to focus on when you get lost like how you are right now. Waiting is important, BUT, so is GRABBING the opportunity by the throat and getting ahead of the pack. YES, good things comes to those who wait, but then again the other person is working his but+ off to get ahead of the race, not really waiting but, taking chances, knowing the mistakes enough to not do them again. I'd like to think that in life, you should learn as much as you can by yourself. Not that other people's opinion doesn't matter, it does, there are just some things that you have to learn yourself and those are better that way. Peer pressure is just something you CHOOSE to put on yourself. Your future is in your hands.

Youu need a career before anything first babe because , how can you look after your children without any money :) You need to do what you love first like dreams and goals because if you have kids , you dont have a social life .. because you can't do the things you wanted to when you were young because all they have to do it look after there children and provide for them , so i would just wait , careers come before children to know that you are gonna good with some money , and not full of kids :D but yes good things happen to those who wait :) xxxx
