29 Years old yet feeling hopeless.

Kenya
March 12, 2023 7:16am CST
This year is the year i turn 29 and i feel as if my future isnt so bright. I am only completing my degree this year and i have no work experience whatsoever. I still live with my parents. No income. I dont have a partner therefore no potential spouse at the moment. I really dont see much light at the end of the tunnel and when i read or hear about other peoples achievements at my age i feel even worse. Is there anyone that can relate or may have made it even in their 30s?

When you have a spare five minutes and three seconds listen to the youtube link. " Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life The most interesting people I know Didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't"

I only stopped asking myself "what will I do when I grow up" at around 65 years of age when I was diagnosed with cancer (a lymphoma). Enjoy your present. Life is not a tunnel. It is a bright path even though there are always some stones as in all paths.

God has surprise for you, don't be discourage. I feel like I am a looser to in my age now, but material things are not everything. So just live happily for what God has given to me..

These are all things you can work on and I understand at 29 you feel things should be different. But even at my age, I am constantly refining things. I did not meet someone I actually liked til I was over 50 yrs old. I started my career well into my 40s. And just the other day, I was offered a job at 67 yrs old. So do not distress, you have many options and years ahead.

Maybe you will feel better when you have completed your degree. You are still young enough find a partner and a career. Perhaps you could try voluntary work for now so that you can get used to a working environment and you will get satisfaction from helping others .

Hi! I think what you feel is valid, but you know try to help yourself up, first, don't compare yourself to others but I understand we are just human and that feeling is inevitable. Life has its own timing, maybe a good career and partner are just there but not your time to have it yet. Just keep on trying and improving to make yourself better. God bless!

Do not feel depressed, my brother lived in family until he was 29 and then he started his career and he has been successful.

Don't let current circumstances discourage you. God has a plan for your life.

Life is to be lived, not to be just thought about. And so instead of regretting what we do not have, we should rather just breathe the air in for today, and let life stay as it is, then life will come to you, rather than you coming to it. Life follows its own way for us, and we are mostly just passengers on God's train, his mission and purpose already having been set for us. We more have to just enjoy the ride that we are on, rather than look everywhere for a better ride on another train, elsewhere.

I'm 10 years older and I don't think you should worry about it so much, think about it. You have to act, you are still young. Much ahead of you. Don't get down, just think about your abilities, even if you have no experience. Some have their lives arranged at the age of 20, others 30-40, and still others at the age of 50, 60 and even more. It's never too late for anything.

Don't lose hope! Your future can still be bright, even if it doesn't seem like it right now. Many people start their careers later or continue their education after 30. Don't compare yourself to others and don't worry about what they have achieved. Focus on your own goals and dreams, and work towards them gradually. Time is on your side.
