1. Being told to "act your age." Who says there's an age limit on having fun and being yourself? Don't let anyone dull your sparkle.


2. Constantly being asked about marriage and kids. Just because we're getting older doesn't mean we have to follow society's timeline. Let us live our lives on our own terms.


3. The pressure to look young. Wrinkles and grey hair are a natural part of aging. Embrace them and don't let society's beauty standards dictate how you should look.


4. Being called "ma'am" or "madam." It's a reminder that we're no longer seen as young and it can be a bit jarring. Just stick with "miss" or "hey you."


5. Being told to dress more conservatively. We're not teenagers anymore, but that doesn't mean we have to dress like grandmas. Let us express ourselves through our fashion choices.


6. The assumption that we're not tech-savvy. Just because we didn't grow up with smartphones doesn't mean we can't figure them out. Don't underestimate us.


7. Being told to slow down. We may not have the same energy levels as we did in our 20s, but that doesn't mean we can't keep up. We'll slow down when we're ready, thank you very much.


8. The expectation to have it all figured out. Life is a journey and we're constantly learning and growing. It's okay if we don't have everything figured out by a certain age.
