Birthday Blues | Turning 30 | Life Stress

A mom and daughter discuss the stress surrounding the daughter's upcoming 30th birthday.

I’ve been in a funk for the past few days, partly due to finishing the semester and losing a lot of creative momentum. My birthday tends to hit me hard because it’s so close to the end of the year, and I end up reflecting on my accomplishments and setbacks. I’ve been dreading 30 for the past year, and I don’t think I ever could measure up to the expectations I’ve put on it at this point.

I’m trying to be kind and compassionate, and my mom helping me navigate these feelings was really helpful.

I know it’s a bit of a downer comic, but I’ve been thinking about this conversation a lot, and trying not to be hard on myself.
