Just Another Awesome Stage: 20 Incredible Things You Only Realize When You Turn 30

There are some incredible things you have to realize when you reach age 30. Here are some of them.

1. You will have fewer friends.

The quality of your friendships improves as you reach 30. You are not concerned with having a lot of friends; rather, you are more concerned about having the right friends.

2. You will have more weddings to attend.

You’ll be attending more wedding ceremonies than you did you were younger or perhaps you’ll be visiting families more rather than going on vacations.

3. You will become more selective.

You will find it easier to say “No” rather than trying to please everyone by saying “Yes.”

4. You will become more interested in purposeful work.

Unlike when you were younger, and you just had to tolerate and do anything to get by, reaching 30 will mean that you want to do something you enjoy.

5. You will find more pleasure in the simple things.

Reaching the age of 30 makes you realize that golden moments are lived during periods of simplicity. You will take pleasure and appreciate the simpler things better.

6. You will focus on yourself more than on the opinions of others.

You won’t be consumed by the perception of others around you. Rather, you will find more excitement in focusing on yourself and how you can become a better person.

7. You will be referred to as Uncle or Aunt.

You are now older and people see you that way. Younger ones, who you may not be related to, will refer to you as Uncle or Aunt.

8. You will value every item you buy.

You become responsible for yourself and find value in everything you buy to make yourself more comfortable, from the bed to the TV screen.

9. You will be more focused on your health.

You are concerned about your lifestyle and how it will affect your health. You are more cautious about what you eat and drink.

10. You will understand that life is fickle.

Some of the people in the course of your life may have passed on or are facing serious health issues. You start understanding that what is may be gone in the blink of an eye.

If you are married, you will give attention to your husband or wife. If you are single you will pay attention to the romantic ties you have.

They say experience is the best teacher and reaching the age of 30 must have provided you with some experiences to make you think smarter.

People that you care about must have broken your heart and made you disappointed enough to make you more cautious any time you approach a new relationship.

14. You will appreciate knowledge.

You understand that knowledge goes further than you thought. You find that life is a wonderful teacher.

15. You will be let down by people.

The best favors come from the most unexpected sources. And the people you expected to be there for you fall short.

At the end of the day, family will be the closest people in your life and you will start cherishing them.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
