- What is my age:
- I'm 39 years old
On my 30th birthday three years ago, I had dark chatroom 30 life lessons my twenties had taught me.
When I was younger, not even 20, someone told me that your 30s are the best years of your life.
At the time, I thought it was kind of a random thing to say. Now, as someone in my late 30s, I think I can officially confirm it as true!
Like most people, I slightly dreaded turning 30 when I was in my late 20s. Or maybe it was the realization that the clock was going to keep ticking, for better or for worse, my whole life.
Honestly, I think my fears were sarstedt sex chat club no mild compared to some of my friends. Some people I know get truly panicked over the big After the birthday came and went, my whole perspective changed. I realized that not much had changed. I still had all the same options for what I could wear or do or who I could be that I had when I was 28 … the only limitations were the ones I gave myself. I have loved my 30s and they have definitely been even better than my 20s!
One thing that changed was my confidence. I used to have a horrible fear of public speaking, like I actually cried when giving a speech to run for class president in elementary school.
And by high school I avoided all public speaking like the plague. I quit choir the first day of my freshman year when I saw you had to sing in front of the class for, like, two seconds—haha. I remember feeling sick to my stomach anytime I had to read aloud in class. And that type of fear continued arab voice chat through my 20s. As my career progressed, I found myself in more and more situations where basic public speaking was expected of me—sometimes I did OK and was so proud, sometimes I bombed so hard I can barely even relive the chat with russian woman in my mind.
But something really changed in my 30s and after some practice, lowering my expectations a bit and embracing a more lighthearted attitude, I can happily say I no longer had a convo over a drink tonight fear surrounding public speaking.
Keep in touch!
In fact, the past few times I have done it I actually had fun! Another big change is my confidence about my appearance.
Looking back, of course, I see that my self esteem was what needed fixing—not my appearance. It feels so good to just be OK with myself. Being older, I also feel mature enough to not compare myself to latina naked chat looking for nsa women, at least most of the time.
I can see now that comparison does nothing positive.
There is so much happiness in that simple mindset shift! It feels so good to be free pikki chat that fear. Fearing a birthday is a really sad fear if you think about it, because that birthday will come whether get paid to chat are sad or celebrating.
I promise you, being in your 30s is amazing! I highly recommend it. Haha xx. I can so relate! At the end of my twenties I was already less comparing myself to other people and I was more aware of my own self-worth. This continued to grow as I passed I really enjoy this season of life! I would go back to my thirties for sure! I am still just 31 but it is serving me good so far! I really look forward what the rest of these years have to give.
