What is older? I am 43. I guess that is mid-life in these days.
For me, shaking up my entire life and starting fresh is old hat. I can't count how many times I have done that. Student, wilderness guide, science tutor, dog groomer, staff reporter and photographer, marketing director for an orchestra, guide for the disabled, freelance writer, magazine editor, book author, naturalist, radio DJ...
So when people tell me to stop being comfortable, i kind of freak out. I NEED comfort. I think I have PSTD from all the change, plus moving over 100 times, living in an RV, living in the back of my pickup, starting over and over and over in different states and careers my entire adult life.
So maybe it's just me that finds this kind of advice condescending?
I know lots of people like the 'harsh truths' sort of advice. But it just irritates me.
