At 43, I'm definitely happier than in my 20's. For me in particular, I had a lot of self esteem issues, didn't believe in myself, and required validation from other sources. That decade was the most turbulent for me as far as self & relationships goes....

Now that I'm older and wiser, I feel more relaxed and in control. I know what I want, do what I want, knowing that I don't have to take anyone's crap if I don't want to, and get to actually enjoy life! Now, I can look back and appreciate, instead of loathe, those experiences because all that got me to where I am. Smile

On the other hand, I do think it's a matter of perspective. Some see 40's as the end, others see it as a beginning. It's all in how you choose to overcome certain challenges and situations before then.

I wouldn't know about 40s as I am still in my 20s, but I'll say late 20s is better than early 20s. I have more common sense now. I was a stupid young person.

I don't know. It's all very subjective. There are advantages and disadvantages to every era and personal trajectory will influence this as well. My 20's were great. My 30's sucked. My 40's are picking up and I know myself better.

I'm 30 now and so much more sure of myself than when I was in my 20s. My 40s should definitely be interesting.

I travel now, to be my age I've traveled a whole lot.
especially compared to my peers and friends.

I don't want to just be starting my major traveling at 40. sounds lame....
i actually want to be married with kids at 40. so that wouldn't even be an option. we could go on family vacations and trips but those solitary trip days are over.
honestly they'll be winding down around 30 for the most part.

@honeyb87

maybe it's because I'm a big kid, anything older than 30 is not ideal to me

I'll embrace it once it gets here but until then...live fast
