Meeting People And Living Life - Over Thirty-five

Meeting People And Living Life - Over Thirty-five

It's not as easy as it used to be. Now that we've “found” ourselves and discovered and learned more of what we like and don't like it seems we are compatible with fewer and fewer people. Gone are the days of superficial beauty and no opinions to get in the way. In the mid-thirties people have developed their personalities more, experienced more, and had successes and setbacks further sculpting their personalities. Life is more complex. Yet emotions still have virility and strength.

What can we who have moved into our mid-thirties do to ease loneliness and meet new people? I guess stay close to the friends we already have and work from there. There are always the old standbys of taking classes, joining reading groups, and so on. Venture out on occasion to local taverns, but not so much that it interferes with your goals and motivation to get things done. Stay active. Exercise. Do what works best for you.

These are stressful times for a lot of people and change at this age can be very difficult since many people have achieved stability by this point which is expected of us in many ways by the tendencies of our society. I personally believe that societal norms should not hold and judge us. Let us not be bound by what the majority does. We are all unique and beautiful individuals. No matter where life takes us. Let's try to see beyond our differences and appreciate our uniqueness.
