Everyone freaks out when they turn 30 or 40yrs old. I am turning 29 in a week and I am really depressed about it. The thought of being closer to 30 and feeling like I have accomplished nothing in my life I am kind of freaking out about and being really hard on myself. Social Networking has really messed up my view on life. I sit on facebook and look at everyone elses pages and see how accomplished and happy they are with their lives. Granted I am sure some are just "posers" and aren't as happy as they seem but 98% of my "friends" have children, husbands, wives or significant others. Me on the other hand…. I am going on 29yrs old and living with my father (not paying rent) and broke all the time. No kids and just not happy with how life has turned out for myself. I know I am still young and I have goals of what I want to do but on how to reach them is a different story and having the motivation.
Some of the things I do have is I have a job that I like, an awesome boss and a decent co-worker. Bad thing about it is I dont make much money. Am I stupid for staying with a job I love but can't survive off of? There is room for advancement and I am striving for that but is it worth the financial struggle and depression? I do have a boyfriend but he is gone all the time (he is a military indepedent contractor) and we have only been dating a few months so not sure on how serious it is yet. Some things I do want to accomplish is to move out on my own and adopt a child, or even volunteer at a children's shelter but lack of funds stops me.
There are all these mountains to climb and I feel as if I am not strong enough to pull through. GOD give me the strength!
