What age do people start hating their birthdays? Is it 30, 40, 50…? As a child, who can forget waking up on their birthday with the feeling of electricity pulsing through their bodies – excited. Happy. Another year older, another year wiser, another year closer to whatever lies beyond. Then the shift occurs, birthdays get swept under the rug, forgotten or downplayed. If you are one of the people that despises getting older, we compiled a few lists to inspire your own thinking about why getting older isn’t as bad as it’s made out to be. Who knows, you may just start creating a list of your own.
