Let’s be honest. Getting older is not for the faint of heart. You are constantly riddled with questions about your future, whether or not you have one, and when you will find someone to settle down with… The list goes on. If you google “the benefits of getting older”, you will get a deluge of articles responding to what we all assume are the downsides to aging: loss of youth and beauty, memory loss and so on. However – there is another side to this coin. What if getting older has its perks? Here are 5 reasons why my favorite age is now!
You are more aware of who you are and what you want.
One of the best parts of getting older is that you are now aware of who you really are. As children, we are constantly changing and finding out who we are, but usually around the age of 25, we have found a groove and we have a pretty good idea of who we are. You know your strengths and weaknesses, your likes and dislikes, your style and other factors that really define who you are. So, when you are in a relationship, you know who you are and what you want. You also know what you don’t want in a partner. You know what you’ve gone through in your life and how to pick out a partner who will be understanding and supportive of you.
You have a better grasp on your life’s purpose.
With each passing year, you come closer to finding your purpose in life. You are more aware of the things that drive you, the things that make you happy and the things that you would love to do. This is one of the best parts of getting older. You also have a better grasp on where you want to be in life. You have a better idea of what your long-term goals are, what you want to accomplish with your life and where you see yourself in 5 years time. This is a major advantage to getting older. Once you have found your purpose and your life’s goals, you can set out to achieve them and find a way to make them a reality.
The people around you get better by the day.
With every passing day, the people you love become even more amazing. This is partly due to getting older and partly due to the fact that the kids grow up! Anyone who has been a parent knows that kids go through many stages of development: tantrums, mood swings and the terrible twos are just a few examples. The best part about the people in your life getting older is that they become less moody, change their attitude, become more mature and start to act like the adults that they are. They become better people as time goes on and they become more confident, secure and self-aware. This is one of the best parts about getting older. Having people around you that are genuinely good people and getting to see them grow up and become the amazing people that they are destined to be is a huge advantage to getting older.
And finally, you know exactly what you don’t want in life.
As you get older, you learn what you don’t want in a partner, a job and in life. Once you are aware of the things that you don’t want in a relationship, you can use that information to find the right partner. You can sift through the dating apps and find someone who fits your description and description. You can find a partner who is compatible with you and brings out the best parts of you. If you know what you don’t want in a job, you can actively look for a job that won’t bring you down and support you in your life goals. You can use the knowledge of what you don’t want in life to find the right things in life.
You can see clearly now that the fog has lifted.
As you get older, you realize that the fog that has been lingering over your eyes for most of your life is lifting. You start to see things as they really are and not what you thought they were. You start to see yourself and others for who they really are and not who you thought they were. You can see their good qualities and their bad qualities, and you can distinguish between the two. This is one of the best parts of getting older. You can see the people you love for who they truly are, you can see the path that you want to take in your career and you can see your future in general as a much brighter place than it was when you were younger. You can see what is ahead of you and you have a clearer picture of where you want to go in life.
