It's not my birthday, sorry, I just wanted to comment.>>9533
I'm a few birthdays short of my 30s now. It's rapidly approaching at a rate of one year per year and i'm terrified of being too old for certain things that I want to do but haven't done. I'd like to blame this anxiety on a culture that fetishizes youth, but perhaps I need to find my own strength to persevere.
I don't want to fall into that same pit of despair and self-loathing that I feel I only just clawed my way clear of. I'd been stuck there for 15 years, I don't wanna go back.
I hope you had a nice birthday anyway. Maybe you got to do something nice with a friend.
