There comes a time in one’s life when a person needs to change. They need to stop acting like teenagers and to mature no matter whether they want it or not. Time flies and asks nobody whether they want to grow up. Surely we cannot stay in Neverland, so the best thing we can do is to follow our age’s responsibilities. Today we have prepared for you a list of things that you should stop doing in your early 30s. Or if you stop doing them in your 20s, it would be even better.
#1 Treating your parents like your slaves
There are a lot of people who still live with their parents even when they are old enough to live on their own. There is nothing wrong with this, of course, but they often take advantage of their parents and act like their still children. A person who is in their 30s should not wait for their mother to do the cooking, or to wash the dishes. They should not only help with chores, but also with bills. They are no longer children who should wait for their parents to pay the bills and should pay at least 1 third of the bills. After all this is what is fair.
#2 Envying your friends
People in their 30s are supposed to be grown-ups, but believe it or not, there are still people who act like teenagers despite their maturity. There are women who continue envying their friends about their possessions. Some of their friends bought a house, another one got married, and the third one already has a baby.
When a person is in their 30s, they are supposed to know that people are masters of their own lives and should not constantly compare their lives to the lives of others. This will only make them bitter and miserable. It is best to try to be happy for these people and not to envy them. And if one cannot feel happy about this, they should remind themselves not to compare their to other people’s lives.
#3 Having a crush on a star
We have all probably been there, to be a teenager and to really like some celebrity, usually an actor, or a singer. However, once a woman is in her 30s she should definitely stop drooling over celebrities. It is true that there still will be hot guys in movies and on the stage, but this does not mean that you should faint when you see them. This kind of behavior is typical for teenagers and not classy ladies, remember that.
#4 Criticizing your weight
Stop, stop, stop! It is about time to stop complaining how fat you are every 10 minutes. It is true that this trait is typical for women and they have been complaining about their weight for centuries, but a woman in her 30s should already have her priorities straight and to know that we are the ones responsible for the way we look. If you are not satisfied with your weight, go on a diet and start going exercises. And if you do not care anymore about your muffin top, then go ahead and have a pizza for dinner. Who cares if you have a couple of pounds on or not?!
#5 Being ashamed of your hobbies
There are a lot of people who have unusual hobbies and they are ashamed of them, just because they are not attractive or sexy in the eyes of others. But who cares if other people will like your hobbies or not. You may like knitting and this is great, and it does not mean that other people should like it as well. You are no longer a teenager who is afraid if the cool kinds at school are going to approve of them and their choices, so be proud of your skills and the things you like doing especially if you can do them well.
#6 Feeling uncomfortable when somebody complements your looks
This is a typical trait shy girls have. They are in a way embarrassed to receive complements because they do not feel pretty enough to deserve them. If you are in your late 20s and you have still not learned that you should not feel awkward when somebody complements you, then you are in a serious need of some self-esteem boosting.
You need to remember that you are beautiful, no matter if you think that you have flaws. If somebody complements you on your makeup, hairstyle, or outfit, accept the complement with a smile and gratitude. After all, it has probably taken you and hour to achieve this look. Or you simply need to thank your good taste for choosing this outfit. So, yes, you definitely deserve the complement!
