You shouldn’t care about the negative things people tell you.
It’s your life not theirs. Focus on being a better version of yourself instead of letting the bad vibes put you down.
You don’t need a man to complete you.
So what if you’re already 30 and still single? It’s the perfect time to meet new people and make connections that really matter. While having a significant other has its perks, life has so much more to offer.
Cutting off toxic connections is one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.
If they’re not doing you any good, then it’s better to stay away from them. Some stay to help you grow while others leave to teach you a lesson–not everyone is meant to stay in your life.
You shouldn’t give in to peer pressure when it comes to marriage.
No one should tell you when and who to marry–it’s your decision and if you think you’re not ready for it, then don’t give in. The big 3-0 is not a deadline to get married
You know what you really want.
Whether it’s with your career, relationships, or friendships, you’ve got it figured out.
Having a small circle of friends is fine.
What’s the point of having 2,576 friends on Facebook if you don’t even know each one of them personally? Having few friends allows you to get to know them better, leading to stronger, deeper relationships.
Not everyone will like you, and that’s okay.
You can’t please everyone. As a matter of fact; you shouldn’t force yourself into doing something just to be liked. Life is too short to waste your time on people and things that don’t really matter.
You’re more confident.
It could be with your body, the way you interact with people, or dating. You’ve been through a lot during your 20s and you definitely know what works for you and what doesn’t.
You learn to forgive and forget.
You’re done with dwelling on other people’s past mistakes and negativity that could put you down. You would rather focus on the brighter things in life.
You’re more careful when it comes to relationships.
Meeting different kinds of people with varied backgrounds has taught you how to adjust and read people. Once again, you don’t have time for toxic people.
