    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...

    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 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...
