I recently turned 33 and I can’t accept my age. Well I don’t need to consciously accepting it since I can’t change the fact I am 33. I hate myself for being this age. I try to stay look young, but never gonna be able to beat natural beauty of youthfulness for sure, right? I also feel my personality is immature. like I care about the way I look too much. I understand it is meaningless but I can’t help feeling jealous for 20’s. They still have beauty and they can do what ever they want to do. They are too bright for me…
Have you ever felt the same? How did you get over it?
“I am 33. I hate myself for being this age.. I also feel my personality is immature”-
– the serenity prayer may be helpful to you, it says: “god, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”.
You can’t change your age, but you can change/ mature your personality. Try to focus on what you can change, it will take away from your focus on what you cannot change. And post here again if you want to.
I have had these same thoughts for most of 2020, and I am turning 60 in November. Several years of ill health and managing a changing body have played havoc with my self-confidence. I recently went to my GP, a wonderful woman. For the first time, someone listened to me. Her response has changed my life. She said you are in good shape, your weight and vitals are fine. You are intuitive about your body and take care of it. You have nothing to worry about, you have beautiful skin and hair. As she was standing up, the doctor looked at me and said, my assistant, can’t believe you are 59. At that moment, my life and outlook changed. I can’t turn back the clock and be younger but I can enjoy my life and be thankful for all I have: rewarding work, a loving family, and a sweet dog who greets me at the door every night. Please try and enjoy your life, don’t worry about caring too much, you are who you are and the world is better for you being in it.
