Society loves to tell women that they're only as valuable as they are young, and that they should stock up on Botox to prevent their face from showing any emotion. We refer to youth as "the best days of our lives" as if there's a deadline for joy, and you will spend the rest of your days remiscing as a withered old crone.
That attitude is harmful to women of all ages, as it puts the pressure on people in their 20s to make the most of it, because that's as good as it's gonna get. On the contrary: women older than 29 responded to a Reddit post asking, "What made your thirties way better than your twenties and why?" The responses are moving and refreshing to see.
I levelled up! I gave fewer f*cks in my 30s. Fewer f*cks about men, shitty opinions I didn’t ask for, societal expectations of me, “friends” who made me feel like I was an inconvenience to them… I had the power and the strength to be able to cut anything and anyone from my life if they weren’t adding some kind of benefit. I became my number 1 and my life improved drastically.
