Have decided that in a lot of ways, I love being in my thirties. Not something I thought that I would say, especially considering the overwhelming dread I had about turning 30.
The thing is, still being single aside, living situation aside, the thing that overtakes all the regrets, is how I feel now.
I have always felt a little, well in truth more than a little lost, but in my thirties, I finally feel like I am starting to know who I am, what I am, and more importantly, I like who I am.
I have a confidence in myself now that I never had before. I have the confidence to say my opinion, have an opinion without being scared to say, instead of as in the past, hiding what I thought and agreeing with the other person for fear of being disliked.
Some people might say I have too much of an opinion now, I can be judgemental sometimes, although never of the ones I love. I have a core sense of what I believe in now, things that I strongly believe in, and I wouldn't change for anything.
Realisation is a wonderful thing, and I bloody love it. I am living again, not surviving under pretense.
