forever 18

Hot 3185 views. 2018-7-9 18:10

When I was 18, I regarded myself as a loser with low self-esteem because I failed in study.

 

When I turned to 28, as a mum, I was told to be too old studied with classmates who are more than 10 years younger.


When I reached 38, I finished a bachelor’s degree and found first job in Australia by competing with 20-year-old college graduates.


I felt as young as 18 because I have found a stone of hope out of a mountain of despair and changed my life to be a new version with self-confidence.

 

Now, when I turn to 48, I start a new journey- writing, traveling and live the way I love.


One can have a new dream at any age. Without it, life will be so empty and boring no matter how luxury material life you are having.

 

In China, there’s huge pressure from age.


If one failed entering into a desired Uni or finding a good job in his 20s, then he might have to believe as useless.

 

Even an elegant 30-year-old single lady will worry about being too old to find a dreamed prince, so that she needs to lower the standards in order to find a husband, just for getting married and having a kid.

 

That would be very sad as I don’t think it’s the truth, a woman in her 30s and 40s is the best age.

 

You can still be classy. It depends on how you think about yourself and take action to become an attractive one.


The same as a man,one can set up a dream at any time and any age, please do not give up.

 

Please don’t think you are too old to do something you like, that’s your narrow mind.

 

Please don’t discourage yourself and live at the eyes of someone else.

 

It is easily being advised that you are supposed to find a good job in a big company at early 20s, you are supposed to get married at 26, you should have a kid before 30, you should do what someone else is doing, otherwise, you will be a loser.


I don't think it works, you should do what you like as long as it makes your life full, anyone else is unimportant, why care so much about others.

 

Let’s make a new plan which is related to you and do it with lots passion as if you were in your 18.

I try to find and not afraid to face every challenge in the past 37 years. But I doubt if I'm wrong for that and  I should make a fixed direction before.  I regain confidence after reading your words.

You have achieved something in the life journey and set an excellent and inspiring example. I think that you can realise more. Just believe that we are not old in heart then we can really do something. We are never old.
