As soon as you hit 30 you start living by your own ideals. You stop caring about what other people think (for real, this time) and start expressing yourself more freely. You begin to avoid appeasement as a disservice to yourself and others.
Wisdom truly does grow with age. You want to give back. You want to teach and share your knowledge with others while wanting to learn more yourself. You ask questions and give others praise.
“I’m more and more coming to the idea that it’s the lineage and the connection to the past and the connection to the future — that is the real connection.” – Philip Glass
Your inner voice gets stronger. You ditch anxiety for confidence, even if you’re still doubtful. “It’ll be fine,” we tell ourselves. You can more easily step outside yourself and into another person’s shoes to gain deeper perspective.
An open mind and an open heart create progress. At the end of the day it comes down to how well you treat yourself and others. Know thyself and the world opens up to you.
