    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...

    But Not For Much Longer.

    The big decade-turning birthday is a couple of months away but I am fighting it tooth and nail. I won't be one to age gracefully.

    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...

    Yep. In my mid 30s and I don't feel the least

    bit put off about it. I'm glad to have gotten to this part of my life as I didn't like my teens and 20s as much. Given, in my 20s I sure had a lot of fun exploring different things and learning about new interests. The interesting thing is that it wasn't until about two years...

    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'm Twenty-seven...uh...actually, Thirty-one

    I read an article that said something like, "Most people feel approximately 13 years younger than they actually are."  Well, I am still in shock that I am in my 30s now.  It is not that I feel old, but there are moments where I can feel my age.  I ...

    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...

    So Many Changes Though Very Rewarding!

    When I turned 30 I seemed to get my voice to stand up for myself and my beliefs. I've found my true friends, divorced, stood up to his family, wrote my books, worked through my past experiences. I love being in my 30s!

      I am 30 hitting 31 in a few months, and honestly, 30 doesnt feel any different than my twenties. I have the same problems, same work ethic, more bills however, but thats it really.

    Amazing, Really

    I am amazed to realize I actually survived my 20s.  I know that sounds like the leading part of a joke, but it isn't.  I had such a rough time in my late teens and most of my 20s that for a while it was debatable whether I'd live to see 30.  I did, and am grateful...
