I really enjoyed this article because it really resonated with me.I turned 30 last year, and I have to say that everything in this article is true! I spent most of my twenties feeling fairly insecure, and mostly busting my ass at work while trying to navigate dating after a long-term break-up with my high school bf.
I had to move out on my own for the first time and truly become an independent woman. I am very grateful for that experience - but so glad that transition is over!
All that work paid off and I’m totally in the zone - both professionally and personally. I’m confident in myself and my decisions, but it took the whole of my twenties to get there. The 30’s are nothing to be feared, if anything I’m looking forward to more of this!
"It was around age 29 that the number of fucks I gave about other people’s opinions dipped to critically low levels. Which freed up all kinds of mental and emotional space for the stuff I was really passionate about."
