Dreading Turning 40

"I'm Terrified About Turning 40"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!


Some of you might read my post and think that I am a shallow person. But I just cant help not be terrified about turning 40 soon while I am still single and have no children. This age is scaring me, I am missing out on living the moment everyday. It has been two months now that every day I wake up with that fear inside me. It feels like I have failed my life. I look around me and see people in their 40s well established and having built families, might have found love or not but have achieved something on their personal lives. I don't know how to get over that anxiety! I need a solution 'cause I am missing out on living the "now."
