Growing Up Is Hard to Do

Age is nothing but a number.

Unfortunately, it’s a pretty important number, and even if we choose to ignore it, it will come back to haunt us year after year, especially as everyone around us seems to keep getting younger.

Do you feel your age? Do you look your age? Act it? As we go through this life, one important lesson is that, regardless of how old we are, how old we feel is much more important. Even as our bodies get more feeble, our minds and especially our spirits can grow stronger if we only have the energy to do so.

While it’s important to stay positive and young at heart, growing older does come with its problems, all of which begin to feel abundant once we’ve hit 30. Redditors were asked, “What’s okay to believe in yours 20s, but just dies off in your 30s?” and they had plenty of helpful advice that we wanted to pass along to you.
