I can see how that can be true for many people but for me it's not.I had a few good years when I was growing up in terms of happiness but that was about it for me what about you?

Not really. I liked my 20's. Had a lot of freedom, got married, traveled, but also had a job that sapped most of my energy. My current line of work is much less stressful, to the point that overall I'm calmer and less exhausted, despite the fact I'm a dad now.

There are pros and cons that make my 20s and 30s about equally enjoyable.

I spent half of my 20s with cancer so I would say it really depends on your situation and your standard of living growing up.

I enjoyed my 20s, lots of sex, drugs and rock n roll. But it all depends of what you want from life at any given moment. In my 40s what I want from life is not the same I wanted in my 20s.

I think people who say that the past was their best time do so out of frustration.

Not for me. My 20s were crap. I'm 34 and I'd say it's only in the past few years I've really got myself together and properly enjoying life.

I had it pretty rough growing up and into my 20's and even 30's,learned a lot,mental issues and a lot of personal problems,bullied at home,school,and I realized in my later adult life that I had no decent friends growing up or as an adult. Pretty muck kept to myself and still do to some degree. I've never even had a girlfriend before. So on topic,my 40's are my happier years to date.

20’s were about drama and having little time at home. Hustle hustle hustle. School, social life, and partying were priorities. I didn’t care about politics, videogames, or TV. In my thirties now with a great job, family, spouse, car, and home. I want to say I enjoyed my 20’s more - they were okay, but I’m more happy I made it out alive. Some crazy crazy nights!

I'll have to agree.

I was out of high school and in college, living in a small apartment, partying almost every day.

Lotta down times in my 20s so far, I enjoyed my teens much more. Things are getting better now though, just hit some hard times in my early/mid 20s.

jesus i hope not, otherwise what the hell are you living for once you're past your 20s?

20's were good for obvious reasons; lots of free time, little real responsibility, really being out on my own.

i guess what i'll miss most though it not waking up in the morning with strange pains in new places.

abuse your body in your 20's. feel it in your 40's :)

Nah, I think that's just a generalization or cliché or whatever.

Dude, tell me about it haha.

I'm 36 now and when I bend over to pick up a pen I'm like "oooof". Granted, I've done manual labor pretty much since I was 14 years old, but still...

I'd say my 20s where the most defining years of my life. My trials and events in my 20s really molded the person I am today and helped me discover who I was. The freedom and excitement of buying your own place, and having the freedom to do what you want was a wonderful feeling.

I think my teens where probably my "best" years for the simple fact that I look at them with a fond sense of nostalgia. As a kid, you have virtually zero responsibility. Everything from a home to food is taken care of for you, and the "big issuses" you had as a teenager are nothing in retrospect.

I prefer my time now in my early to mid 30s compared to my 20s.

I've spent most of my 20s imagining and dreaming how my life and future is supposed to be and I was obsessed with trying to succeed, which often left me feeling inadequate and stressed out.

I am increasingly realizing in my 30s that happiness and satisfaction have more to do with an internal mindset than external outcomes.

Well I'm in my late 20:s, but my early 20:s were just a huge struggle to find identity and purpose in life. I failed at so many things that I don't think I even remember them all. Finding self-respect and confidence tog several years. In a way it feels like I didn't start succeeding in anything purposeful until I was 24 😕

But as of right now, I've never been happier than I am today. My life feels in place and I am contempt 🙂
