The need to be realistic about my future and ask for help

I have many more physical needs as the years go by and my health deteriorates.

In my 20s I needed to care for my kids more. In my 30s I need to care for me more.

I have fewer personal needs as I get older simple pleasures are the best

Pretty hedonistic in my 20's and 30's.. Pleasure via gratification. Professional quest important. With 40's and beyond began to grow up, really grow up..

I'm retired and really don't give much thought to needs.

Absolutely! As we experience life at all stages, our needs change.

Lots of material needs in my teens and 20's. Somewhere in my early 30's my frontal cortex finally developed and I started to be more grounded. Still collected a lot of material things through my 40's and even into my 50's but now, in my early 60's I've finally stopped. I need more spiritual stimulation and close, personal connections more at this age.

Not much at all.
Still seek out and need social contact.

Not much - God and Love has always been a constant quest.

All through our life stages our needs change as we change. Basically as you get older, you slow down, simplify your life and need less to be more happy.

Well took care of sisters and brothers, raised my children, all grown now, I can enjoy my life, seeking out fun things to do that I never got to do. Just trying to see what it's like just being me.

Money, my own transportation, my health, friends, sexual relationships.
by Member on 3/29/2016 12:16:08 PM
yes. I used to need everyones approval, now I am going to live for myself and when I find the right people in my life they will love me for me and I for them, not to change, conform or hide from who I really am

Oh wow! I've grown tremendously since my 20's! I've gained so much more clarity into who I am and what I want...

In my 20's all I wanted was to smoke weed and wallow in my sorrows, I had no motivation because of depression and I'd basically given up. Early 20's is like a blur because I was depressed or losing it 95% of the time. I did have my man though. And after I had my daughter at 27 I finally put my all into my recovery and turned my life around. In my 30's I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life but just lonely. I hardly ever drink I don't smoke(just vape occasionally) I'm conservative mostly, I need spirituality in my relationships, I need loyalty, I need someone who understands that I have my moods and sometimes I need space but I also need someone who will be there I'm a ride or die friend and I need someone who is the same. I don't care about race but I am a Black woman and you have to be sensitive to that issue if you're not black because I will be sensitive to whatever issues your race has. You must be conscious. You have to know how to have fun- and understand that ratchetness happens sometimes but don't live that way 24 /7. Yes I'm slightly bougie but I keeps it real. I need someone who understands kids and isn't trying to sleep with my man.

Now that I'm in my 50s I'm swayed less by the opinions of others. I know who I am and don't contort myself for approval as I once did
