We’re all older than we think, says TikToker


Getting older is something many of us dread, but what if we told you that you are actually older than you think?

Yes, you heard that right…that’s the sad truth uncovered by a woman on TikTok.

The woman, named Emma, ​​was really excited to be 29, until she realized she wasn’t quite the age she thought she was.

She posted the viral video in March ahead of her April birthday and said she hoped to live her life to the fullest before she turned 30 – but soon realized she was technically already there.

Emma explained: “If you don’t want me to ruin your life, keep scrolling.

“It’s my birthday next month and I started thinking, damn it, I’m turning 29 next month and this is the last year of my 20s.

“And then I realised.

“Your first birthday is when you finish this year.

“Your birthday is like a congratulation for all the hard work you’ve done – the last 365 days, right?

“So I’ll be 29 next month, which means I’ve actually completed the 29th year of my life.

“So on my birthday, I actually start my 30th year of life.

Emma took to TikTok to share her claim and it left people very confused.

“Now I just lost an entire year because I didn’t time that this year was actually the last year of my 20s and next year is the first year of my 30s.”

Emma’s video clearly shocked many, as it racked up 81.4ik views.

Emma’s achievement came as a shock to many, with TikTokers left “mind-blowing” on discovery.

One person said, “That blew my mind.”

While another wrote: “Me, just turned 28, in sudden panic.”

A third commented: “Well as if I wasn’t depressed enough, now I’m just closer to 30 than I thought.”

A fourth said: “I should have kept scrolling.”

But others pointed out that it wasn’t as bad as it looks, because the day after Emma’s birthday, she would be 29 and 1 day old, rather than 30. .

One TikToker said, “But you’ll be 29 and 1 day, not 30 and 1 day, so you still have a year, don’t worry.”

Another posted: “But you only have one more day than the day before, not a whole year.”
