As Years Pass, These 22 Things Become Unbearable – Are You Feeling It Yet?

It makes sense that your perspective of the world tends to shift as you age. An online survey recently asked, “What are you starting to dislike more as you get older?” These are the top 22 answers.

Not feeling like you’re getting older

A coworker asked me on my birthday how old I was turning, and I said with full confidence and not missing a beat, ‘28.’ She laughed. ‘Really, you’re turning 28?’ ‘Wait, did I say that? 38.’”

I was in healthcare a long time and saw more and more patients die with birthdates in the 1940s and 1950s, thinking, ‘Oh damn, that’s so young.’ Nope, that’s my parent’s age, and those people are in their 70’s and 80’s. They die from falling or from other minor accidents. It’s a hard thing to adjust to.”

It’s like I was totally unaware of it when it did happen until it started happening more often. Now I notice it pretty quickly, and it drives me a bit mad.”

“A friend worked at the same job for 30 years. He said, ‘I’ve been working here longer than my coworkers have been alive.’

People

I’m 40, and I’m starting to dislike people altogether.”

My inner hermit gets louder every year. I wish it didn’t.”

Subscription services

Everything is slowly ‘evolving’ into a subscription service. Even heated seats are getting those.”

“This is what kicked off my blu ray collection. It’s gotten a little out of hand, but I know in ten years when you can’t watch anything without an ad, I’ll be glad I did.”

Dating

When I was 20, it was fun. It’d take ten minutes to get ready, and I’d have a good time. Now that I’m older, it’s a whole ordeal and feels more like a job interview.”

“I can’t even date anymore.”

Fear of losing parents

That my parents are also getting older, and the fear of losing them soon terrifies me.”

“I’ve lost one. It sucks. It’s one of those events that rocks the foundations of your life.”

Lack of motivation to do things anymore

I find myself always exhausted and unfulfilled by just everything around me, and I can’t seem to do anything about it.”

“Two of my family member felt this way, and BOTH have hypothyroid! They both had some slight weight gain and were lethargic. Don’t just accept that feeling without visiting a doctor.”

Dust

My pro tip for dust is when I finish drying my dishes, I wipe over my kitchen with the wet towel—top of the fridge, benches, etc. Walk towards the laundry to put the towel in the basket wiping all surfaces on the way. It means I never actually have to ‘dust’ those areas when I’m dusting.”

“I had to buy a datavac. Easily blows the dust off anything you point it at. It won’t get stuck on dust, though.”

Adverts

“The more I see an advert or whatever, the more I try to avoid it.”

Personal space intruders

Agree. I can even look past the rudeness and judgy behavior because I honestly don’t care anymore. What really gets me is the lack of social awareness, like is it really cool to be up in someone’s ‘personal bubble.’”

“Finally, someone that understands the concept of a personal bubble. Drives me bonkers when people don’t get it.”

Negativity and drama

I went on a girls’ trip last year, and two of the girls (verbally) fought in the hotel lobby, complete with shouting tears and runny mascara. (It was over nonsense.) On the one hand, I was absolutely fascinated by people acting like that in public. On the other, I went back to my room because I am too old for that.”

“Yep. The kindest, most clearsighted, and drama-free people I’ve met, even from a very early age, have been the ones who have suffered major losses or have had major problems themselves (usually health-related).”

Concerts

My feet hurt, the music is too loud, I’ve become very sensitive to the strobe light effects most of them use, the fees to buy tickets are outrageous plus parking… and frankly, I get bored. It could be the greatest show on earth, and I still get bored after an hour or so.”

“For some reason, crowds have started to stress me out as I get older.”

Targeted media

Shockingly, media that is targeted towards my actual age demographic, it comes off extremely forced and overly dark to the point where it’s just stupid.”

“Businesses do what makes money.”

Leaving the house

It’s a coin toss as to what kind of day I’m going have every time I leave that front door. But if I stay home, it’s always at least gonna be a decent one.”

“Yeah, it’s where you keep all the stuff you like!”

Other people’s music in public

Put on some headphones.”

“I was at a coffee shop yesterday that was playing some loud techno and noise rock. It would have been my ideal hangout ten years ago, but it was too loud to have a conversation.”

Women’s clothing options

Clothing available for women. Is it too much trouble to make a full t-shirt? Also, no, I don’t want to wear clothing that takes me back to me feeling like I am in elementary school again.”

“And pockets. I want functional pockets, not fake ones or ones I can’t even fit a toddler’s hand into.”

Possessions

All the stuff cluttering up my house and closets. All those things not worth enough to sell and potentially still too useful to throw away.”

“I want to get rid of all my stuff. I don’t need it. I’m trying to find places that will take it, as most of it is craft supplies. But a lot of it is also clothing that can’t be donated, so I’m trying to make sure I make better choices in the future regarding anything I buy.”

Fewer things

I’ve noticed the older I get, the fewer things that I dislike.”

“On one hand, that is true for me too. But that’s because I just don’t really care anymore, so I can’t be bothered. On the other hand, people annoy me more now.”

Teenagers

Teenagers scare the living daylights out of me.”

“I’ve actually come to be more and more sympathetic to teens as I’ve gotten older.”

Anywhere that isn’t bed

“Anywhere that isn’t my bed. If I were always given to option to stay home, I would literally never leave my house. That may be the depression talking, but I also just don’t like people.”

“The ‘anywhere that isn’t my bed’ part definitely sounds a lot like my depression.”

My skeleton

Your skeleton or the soft tissues that are supposed to keep your skeleton from grinding itself into a fine paste? Because if you’re like me, they’re really starting to not do their job anymore, and I’m not OK with that.”

“Same here. I never had problems, then within a short space, my back, knees, and hips just turned into disaster areas.”

Bras

Yeah, I gave up on bras many, many years ago.”

“Amazing what happens when you ditch the torture devices and let your pectorals do what they are meant to.”
