I second all of the things that have been mentioned before my post. Also, I am in my early thirties and I enjoy being treated more like an adult than I was in my twenties and younger. I've almost always acted more mature than my peers, but as I get older I've noticed the difference in the way people treat me.
1. Friendships get better.
2. One gets more Confident
3. One gets a greater sense of Perspective
4. One grows in Wisdom; feeling more settled.
5. Greater Courtesy is shown as your an Adult.
6. A Greater Understanding and Involvement with God and One's Love.
7. Smokin' Hot Dame's dig older Dudes!.
Any experiences you have to share; advice, or anything above you disagree with; Gents speak up and type hard!.
Priorities would sum up most of it. I'm only 26, but I've noticed over the last few years (especially being a dad, now) that I care about way fewer things. The things I do care about, though, I REALLY care about. You realise what's important, whose opinions of you are important, what you need to keep up with and what you can afford to let slide. You learn to do the really important things really well (such as looking after yourself and your family and pursuing your faith) which make the rest of life so much easier. Hunt down and destroy the little foxes which erode your ability to do the really important things really well.
Hopefully we get better at this as we get older ...
I'm 31, and What I feel has been better with age is...
My Dad is my friend, not the adversary he was when I was a teen.
My friends who have stuck with me all these years will be with me till we die
I am not impulsive anymore
I enjoy little things more then I ever did before
Living without something is a vacation in and of itself (No cable in 4 years, etc)
I am constantly told I have become wise beyond my years, I think I just manned up.
My Marriage is stronger then it has ever been, and will continue to do so.
"I think free will is a difficult concept to pin down as regardless of the position we take the position we take reinforces our own belief. Confirmation bias. We also have to recognize that we can only come to our belief through our own…"
"Of course you say that: you can't help yourself, having no free will. And I can't stop believing in free will; I have no choice either. So there's no point in talking about it. Too bad we have no choice about…"
"In this world, is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true that man has no control; even over his own will." -Kentaro Miura Do you guys think humans have free will? I don't, and I think its an extremely irrational belief to think that we do, regardless of whether you take a religious or scientific perspective. See More
