  1. Everyone has a different timeline and journey. Is there a specific time in your life when you felt age-related pressure piling up? Tell me here!

  2. Hun, you don't even look like your in your 30s. You're good😅❤️

  3. I don't really know where to start with this but i'll try. I'm currently 14 years old and I've been feeling age pressure ever since i was like 11/12. I've had a really hard time dealing with it and on most days i felt stressed and unmotivated . Watching this video (Along with a few others of yours) is really making me rethink my mind set and help me see things in a better way. I know i shouldn't be feeling age pressure at such a young age but i do . I guess what i'm trying to say is thank you. Your words have inspired to throw away that pressure and live my life to the fullest until i die. -Thank you for helping me realize that, i wish you all the best in 2019.

  4. video greatngriae! thanks for sharing

  5. you're 27??!! i thought you were 20, 23 at most, girl i wish i aged that well

  6. it was a lovely video and thanks for the advice:) I am the person who constantly compare myself with others and crave to be the better one. but I now realized this behavior makes me sick.. I love your word "we are all on our own paths" and I hope I can be the person who love myself and know my path

  7. What's the URL of the clip of those women doing the interview about their pressures?

  8. Lately I've been really stressing about life and school,but watching your video have been the greatest and most inspiring thing ever. I love the content of your video it touched on a lot of topic that us Asian American is going through and it feels good to know that I'm not the only one going through it alone.

  9. thank you, thank you so much Jen for telling me the whole thing in this video! i'm inspired! so muchh love

  10. Hey, How u guys doing! I'm about to turn 20 this May. I realized how fast the time is passing once I turned 19 last year, which people consider u as an adult. I grew up in a traditional Chiese family, I was born and reaised in Shanghai till 13. I would say that im very well-protected by each of my family member during my teenagehood and childhood, which makes me not independent comparing to other people at my age. I consider that as a personality shortage. I started my collge 1 year later than other people, and now every one wants me to graduate asap. However, I kinda want to to some part-time job, but this idea got rejected by my pararents. Because from their perspective, study is the only way to succeed

  11. I watched this video a year ago, coming back, it's hitting me again. Like many others who have commented, I think I've followed your channel for at least 6-7 years now if not more. I'm currently 26 going on 27, and this talk is so real and so relate-able.

    In the asian standard, at my age I should have achieved specific milestones in my career. I've decided a year after graduating from university that I did not want a 50 hour work week, heck, not even 40. It was killing my emotional and physical health. So at the age of 23 I traveled and worked abroad for a year and a half. Coming back, I felt behind while I see all my peers updating their linkedin profiles with promotions, and seeing others my age with more financial freedom.

    I know I have deliberately chosen to invest in myself by jumping into startups and learning technical skills that requires long hours but can potentially yield the ability to work remotely with high rewards. However, these are long term endeavors that can be discouraging during the journey. I've failed again and again, leaving my family questioning me and my decisions, telling me to get a safe government job with good benefits instead. Other people's perspective and the inclination to compare myself to others make me question myself almost daily. Until I hit reminders like your video, that living in other people's expectations and comparing with other's journey is a losing battle.

    Thanks for reminding me to just enjoy the journey and have faith.

  12. I'm 37, don't own a house or a car, not married, Indian – so you know what my parents must be like. I'm changing careers so starting from the bottom again. I get down because no matter my positive outlook societal pressure is always on my back and i have to pick myself up every damn day.

  13. You raise me up!

  14. I never felt pressured for college and never went because I knew I didn't want to because hated HS and sucked at it. But do see the pressure about marriage and kids because everyone I knew from HS is now pregnant married or has kids

  15. You are inspirational 🙂 More than often exactly what others NEED to hear <3

  16. Wow thank you for sharing

  17. Jann so thxful make this video! You make me grow up every single day:)

  18. I’m 25 next month. Started college in 2012 but stopped after a year because I was going through a hard time. Barely went back last year & everyday I’m trying to not freak out over feeling like I don’t have enough time. Watching this video & reading these comments is such a huge relief that I’m not the only one ❤️

  19. Thank you so much for always inspiring me through your videos!! I'm happy you exist!

  20. Really insightful video 🙂 I’m a guy who’s 29 and pushing 30. Even though I spend everyday doing what I love, I still have those societal pressures of having to do things at a certain age. ESP being insecure about getting old
    , aging, and not being attractive anymore. What I’m working on right now is not identifying myself so much with what’s outside but rather the power I have in the inside.

  21. Needed to hear this again. I'm graduating college next month and I can't stop stressing about what the next step should be.

  22. Im 32 and just startet university. My first semester comes to an end in a few days. It is very exciting and i feel that pressure for sure. The youngest ones are 19. So there is an agedifference. But i try not to get to hung up on that and i stay positive. Im seriously having the time of my life right now. Im so greatful to have the chance to go to university at that age and do what mages me happy.

  23. thank god i found you.
