As we age, our priorities and preferences change. Things that we used to enjoy may not hold the same appeal anymore. Here are some of the things that people start to like less as they get older.
Staying Out Late
“Staying out late. I’m good with the occasional night out, but more often than not these days I’m happy to be in my pajamas and on the couch by 7:30.”
“Work. I’m getting older and more crotchety and it’s getting harder and harder to put on my work face and pretend to get excited about quarterly earnings and whatnot.”
Glorifying “The Grind”
“Glorifying “the grind.” I used to pride myself on working until I was run ragged. I won’t do that anymore. My life outside of work is important, my sleep is important, my mental health and having boundaries that separate my work from the rest of my life is important.”
Lack of Compassion and Empathy
“Society and it’s lack of compassion and empathy for others. And the fact that everything has to be made into a joke of some fashion, as if things can’t be taken seriously. Yeah, I don’t like that.”
Drinking and Fast Food
“Drinking and eating fast food. It still tastes good but it doesn’t feel good.”
“Social media sites like Instagram and Facebook. I used to check them and post often, now I rarely get on my profiles.”
“Noise. I am so happy I moved to a quietly family neighborhood that will call 911 if neighbors try to have a house party.”
“My tolerance for new music, subpar food and people has diminished completely. On a side note, I’m turning 31 in November and I will say the “shift” to not caring about what others think has increased. I no longer feel the need to clarify myself, please others, or tolerate fake/rude people. I wasted a ton of time in my 20s doing this!”
“Clothes that look good but are kind of uncomfortable.”
Shoes with Laces
“Shoes with laces. Life is too short.”
“I stopped wearing high heels.”
“Driving for sure. When I first started driving, it meant freedom and going anywhere I wanted. Now it’s just blah. And with all the other drivers out on the road it is just stress inducing now.”
“Socializing in general. God I love isolation.”
