I am coming up to 25 and am sick of people saying to me things like: 1. Quarter of a century. Time is getting on now. You need to be thinking about settling down and kids. 2. No longer a young girl now 3. Time to stop going out to clubs and bars. What I dont get is that 24 is considered young. 25 is only a year older so why does everyone act as though your life is over? I want to cry when I think about being 25 in a few weeks. The only thing I have going for me is that I am good at my job with young children. Other then that, I am single, still living at home and in a job below my degree qualification although I do enjoy it. I am a failure and I know I am a disappointment to my mum as she thought I would be married and with kids by now. I just feel so utterly depressed.Who next to this issue???
