1. Worrying too much, either consciously or not, about the life goals you are supposed to have achieved by 30.

Job. Partner. Kids. We are not our parents' generation, and we can live at a different pace. We can even choose different paths entirely.

5. Tanning too much.

Ugh, too much sun is super bad for you! You're not an irresponsible twentysomething who can slather on coconut oil at the first sight of sun. Take care of your skin!

16. Ignoring your instincts.

One of the most useful parts of getting older is having more experiences to draw from. At this point in your life, if something smells bad, it's rotten. Trust yourself.

17. Paying too much attention to others' opinions about your lifestyle, your beliefs, your body, or your experiences.

People love giving advice, and everyone wants you to know what they would do if they were you. But (spoiler) they're not you.

23. Thinking that every day counts.

There will be days where you feel more powerful than Wonder Woman, but then other days where you can't bring yourself to get off the couch. Not every day needs to count. Let yourself take a break now and then.

24. Being a bitch.

Maybe it feels like the world has treated you poorly. Maybe you want to hide behind your attitude, and give as much as you get. But don't forget that it's best to treat others how you want to be treated.

26. Thinking of 30 as a limit (rather than just another number) and no longer doing the things you love just because you hit a certain age.

This applies to anything: Wear shorts if you want to wear shorts, travel, laugh out loud, get out of that relationship if it doesn't make you happy, and even if you should be "thinking about settling down and getting married," take up pole dancing. No, girl, age is not a limit.
