I realize that this is not necessarily the place to vent about things such as turning 30 but this site was such a help to me a few
years back when I was going through an emotionally turbulent relationship. I thought maybe I could come here once more for some advice.
I turned 29 in October and ever since I'm dreading turning 30. There is so much I haven't accomplished with my life. I spent almost all of my 20's in a verbally abusive relationship. I'm glad I got out of it even though I did love him, but I feel
like I wasted soooo much time.
I still look younger than I am but I notice the age starting to appear on my face. I don't have a "grown up" career...I'm currently
teaching English in Taiwan and I have no idea what I want to do next.
I'm trying to enjoy the freedom I have right now and I also am proud of myself for fulfilling one of my dreams of traveling to
a far off place. I'd like to teach ESL the next few years but I also feel like maybe I'm getting too old to not know what it is I want to do and perhaps this job is a running away of sorts.
Then there is the idea that I'm deviating from a path that most follow-I'm rejecting marriage and children and I feel like I'm sometimes wandering around aimlessly. Yet the thought of having those things right now does not appeal to me.
Does anyone have any advice for women on the brink of 30 who still have no idea what to do with their lives?
Thanks for reading.
