5 Reasons you shouldn’t Freak Out when You Turn 30

5 Reasons you shouldn’t Freak Out when You Turn 30

There isn’t a 20-something alive who doesn’t have a picture of how they want their life to be when they hit 30.

It’s the first decade after high school graduation, and it’s a period when young people evaluate their lives to determine if they’re living the life they want to live. We have to know what we’re doing by the age of 30. It’s acceptable to “hunt” in your twenties, but by the time you’re thirty, you need a plan. Life most likely did not turn out the way you expected it to, in both good and bad ways. If life did not turn out the way you expected, remember that it never does for anyone. As you approach your 30th birthday, here are several reasons why you shouldn’t be discouraged:

It’s OK if you don’t have everything figured out in your life.

Thirty is a significant age, but most individuals haven’t figured out what they want to do with their lives by then. You don’t have to have the ideal career, home, partner, or life that society suggests you should have. It’s a good moment to reflect, but introspection can also bring up feelings of guilt and shame, which are unpleasant and counterproductive. You’ll be fine if you put in the effort and do the right things. It doesn’t imply you’re not doing well just because things aren’t moving as rapidly as you’d want.

You Have the Option to Start Over if You’re Unsatisfied.

Thirty may not be “that young,” but it is certainly young enough that if you do not like your work, your spouse, the city you reside in, or anything else about your life, you can change it and still be the success you desire. You’ll need to save money and establish a plan, but you can improve your life and be happier with who you are and what you do if you put your mind to it. You just must have the discipline to carry out and keep to your plan.

Your Enemy Is Comparison

You must run your own race; comparing the trajectory of your professional or personal life to that of others will only poison your thoughts, discouraging and upsetting yourself. More importantly, you are not devoting your time and energy to achieving your objectives and improving yourself. Simply concentrate on yourself and work diligently every day.

Make Your Own Marks on the Map

Your family, friends, coworkers, society as a whole, and so on will all have expectations for what you should achieve by a particular age. It’s easy for women, in particular, to feel a lot of pressure by the time they’re 30, to be married or have a significant partner, to consider having children, and so on, and I’m here to tell you, you should take it all with a grain of salt. Do things on your own timeline, focus on yourself and your self-improvement, and you will become the person you desire, and your life will unfold as it should. Allow yourself to live life on your own terms.

Your Thirties Are Better Than Your Twenties

I understand that your twenties are romanticised in the media, but it is a difficult decade. The good news is that in your 30s, your learning curve is less steep, you have a stronger sense of self and self-confidence, you’ve benefited from the lessons you learnt in your twenties, and you have less patience for toxic people. All of these factors combined make life considerably easier and decision-making much clearer. Don’t be afraid of turning 30, since the best is yet to come!
