Whoever said they started to feel more confident and comfortable in their 30s is a damn lie. I've been "in my 30s" for a little over 2 years now & I don't know a damn thing.
In your 20s, it's still socially acceptable to make mistakes & really not know what you're doing in this thing called life. Not good at saving money? It's cool, you'll figure it out when you're 30. You have a job but not a career? No problem, that's what 30 is for, settling into your career. Not married? It's fine, God sends husbands on 30th birthdays.
What no one tells you about your 30s is that when you don't have the answers (just as you didn't have the answers in your 20s) you'll feel waaay worse. Should I accept this job? Maybe it's time to buy a house? Should I have a baby or get a puppy? (Either way you gotta potty train it.) Ah hell, just pour another margarita, I'll think about this tomorrow.
So here I am...in my 30s (32 to be exact). Admitting that the only thing I know for sure is that I still don't know what I'm doing with my life and trash day is on Monday. But really, should I get a dog?
