You are definitely allowed to make some mistakes in your 20s. These are your first years as an adult and you will have a lot of choices to make. You will make wrong choices, but at least you still have time to learn from them.
9 worst mistakes you should never make in your 30s
They are unforgivable
But once you hit 30, some mistakes are unforgivable. You should be wiser and know better than making careless mistakes. Here are some mistakes you should never make in your 30s:
1. Repeating the same mistakes you made in your 20s
It’s as simple as that. The best thing you can do is learn from the mistakes you already made in your 20s but not repeating the same.
2. Unnecessary debts
By age 30, you will realize that most of your friends have good jobs and businesses and you might feel the pressure to be at the same standards with them. But the last mistake you will want to make is taking unnecessary loans to maintain standards that are above you.
3. Neglecting personal relationships
Your career may be at the prime but you still need your friends and family. From your busy schedule, always make some time for them.
4. Sticking to bad relationships
Honestly, we shouldn’t be telling you this. If you are not happy in a relationship, just leave. By now you should have set clear standards on what you want in a relationship.
5. Neglecting your health
Say goodbye to binge drinking, careless eating habits and not exercising. Age is slowly catching up with you and you need to be more careful about your health.
6. Not having fun
You are 30 yes, but that is not beginning of the most boring chapter of your life. You most likely will have a family and a hundred other things to do but you still should make time for some fun. It’s never that serious after all.

7. Not saving
By the time you are 30, you have probably finished paying your student loan. So, unless you are still living from hand to mouth, you should have no excuses for not saving.
8. Not investing
And once you have saved enough, please invest. Start a business, buy land, build rental houses or invest in yourself by taking a course or furthering your studies.
9. Stagnating in your career
If you are not where you wanted to be, keep on chasing your dreams. Don’t settle yet; you can never be too old to dream.
