The honest story of the 35-year-old influencer who has no boyfriend, no children!
An honest post by Danae Mercer, an influential and dedicated journalist in the field of health, shows the reality of how age affects the lives and psychology of many girls and women anywhere in the world.
I like being in my 30s. I like to hear stories of women finding love in their 40s. Of people starting a new career in their 50s. The timelines that follow their rhythm, their path, their magic.
I love all these things.
I would just like society to do the same.
Growing up, I just realized that a 'woman never shows her age'.
And that it was rude to ask him.
I knew the model life had to take: high school, university, career, marriage, children.
At age 25, I knew this was not for me.
And as the 30s approached, I recognized a kind of deep-rooted shame.
Because a part of me felt I had gone wrong somewhere, I missed a step,
Slipped to the back of a shelf.
But no more.
I like being in my 30s. I love the faith that has come with them, the deep joy in my body and all it can do, the awareness of who I am.
Judging by my box, I am not alone.
So many of us struggled as teenagers. Crashed in the 20s. And finally hit our fast pace, our incredible pace, at 30 or 40 or 50.
And these are incredible things.
After all, each of us has our own unique path.
Ose kohën tonë të fuqishme.
Pavarësisht se kjo do të thotë që të kesh katër foshnje deri në moshën 25 vjeçe (si nëna ime),
Ose asnjë në të 35-at,
Pavarësisht se është të gjesh një dashuri të re,
Ose ta zbulosh në atë të universitetit,
Cilido qoftë udhëtimi ynë,
Ajo që ka rëndësi është se ajo është e jona.
Dhe secila rrugë
Është e vlefshme,
Dhe e mrekullueshme.
Kështu që, po. Më pëlqen të jem në të 30-at.
Kudo që je, në çfarëdo moshe apo faze apo hapi,
Shpresa ime është që të gjeni dashuri për të.

I love being in my 30s. I love hearing stories of women finding love in their 40s. Of folks embarking on new careers at 50. Of timelines that follow their own rhythm, their own path, their own magic. I love all these things. I just wish society did too. Growing up, I simply understood that a ‘woman never tells her age’. And that it was rude to ask. I knew the pattern life was meant to take: high school college career marriage kids. By 25, I knew that wasn’t me. And when 30 loomed near, I knew a sort of deep rooted, quiet shame. Embarrassment. Because part of me felt I had made a mistake somewhere, missed a step, Slid to the back of some shelf. But no more. I love being in my 30s. I love the confidence that has come with them, the deep joy in my body and all it can do, the awareness of who I am. Judging from my inbox, I’m not alone. So many of us struggled as teens. Fumbled in our 20s. And finally hit our stride, our own incredible pace, at 30 or 40 or 50. And these are incredible things. Ultimately, each one of us has our own unique path. Our own powerful timeline. Whether that’s having four lil babies by the time we’re 25 (like my mom), Or having none at 35, Whether it’s finding love young, Or discovering college old, Whatever our journey is, What matters is that it is OUR own. And each road Is valid, Worthy, And wonderful. So yes. I love being in my 30s. Wherever you are, at whatever age or stage or step, My hope is that you find love for it too. x #selflove #agepositive #feminism #selfacceptance #bodyacceptance #iweigh
