    I am 35. I have a pretty good life,

    I Turned 30 Last Summer

    I feel old, but that's nothing new. I've felt old ever since I first started dealing with my abuse history, and ever since I started having digestive and liver problems, and then I shattered my wrist 5 years ago and proceeded to work in a grocery store on cash (bagging and...

    I Hate This

    I turned 30 five days ago and it's really hard. I thought after my birthday it would be okay, but it still makes me so sad every time I think about it. I don't want to do this alone anymore. This sucks. I feel old and pathetic. Dating sucks. Saying 30 sucks. Being 30 sucks. I...

    I am in my mid 30s now

    and besides me getting a full time job, nothing has changed since my mid 20s. In my 20s I was a student in college, more accurately a student at the Conservatory of Music in Norway, my home country. Basically my day was all about lessons, reading for exams, practicing on my...

    I’m 32 years old, and hopelessly lost.

    As my brother would say, much to my ire, “you’ve had s**tty luck.” Yes, Shane, (that’s not his real name), I’ve had s**tty luck. I’m humbled by your discerning wisdom. It’s not my ‘bad luck’ that is my problem—at least I don’t think so? In late 2000...

    30's Work Life Clash - Leaving Work For a Life

    I spent my 20s in a very fast-paced, high-stress career that required a lot of travel. I'm turning 30 in December and I feel like I woke up one day and said "Oh My God! What am I doing with my life?" I thought I'd have my career together by this time so that once that...

    I've had my job 10 years,

    I own a small duplex with my mum. I have watched all my friends marry, and kids, remarry and tonight I ate a frozen dinner with my dog. I didn't expect that even in my 30's the guys would still act childish. Most end up moving in with me, losing their job, or not having one. I...

    All of my friends are in relationships,

    married or have kids. It's as if they've all found reasons to live and gave meaning and I'm stuck. Sometimes I want to get a job in another state, change my phone number and start new somewhere. Forget everyone. 😕

    Never Wanted To Grow Up!

    Turning 35 next year, been married 7 years, no kids. I don't feel a day older than maybe 24. At work, I connect with my younger colleagues better. I find people my age to be pompous windbags. I look younger than my age, I've heard 29, maybe younger. It was all nice at first, but...

    All I can think about is my mom when she reached this age. She's been gone 10 years now this year (reached 50) and I wonder what she must have felt like at this age. She died of complications from alcohol abuse. I made a decision to stop awhile back but I wonder what fears she...
