    Anyone ever feel like you don't belong in this

    lifetime? Like you've already experienced things multiple times and you feel above your age group, and you can't relate to people your age.

    I am 18 and the last few years my connection

    with people around my age has diminished more and more as time has gone on. I find myself being connected to people 10years+ older than me and would rather have conversation and spend time with them then those that are my age. I recognize this to be a blessing and to appreciate...

    I am definitely an old soul.

    But feeling we were born in the wrong time period doesn't say it all about us old souls. Yes ....we always are bucking trends and often run against the wind. But more importantly we aren't phonies, we old souls are always seeking truth. We never sacrifice are souls to be well...

    I've never felt my age

    and believe it or not I still think the same thoughts since I was 4.I also love the 60s era and especially the 20s era when the Flappers were born to revolutionize ♡

    Its cool being an old soul.

    I mean you can surprise lot of people with that old soul filled with great sense of humour and all charged up with extraordinary energy. Old souls are not out of this world. Trust me, they can give hard time to the young gang. ;-)

    A Place Called Stop

    Hi all. Well yesterday 4/30/15 I turned the

    ripe old age of 50. The old saying goes that your over the hill at age 50. Funny thing is though, I never remembered to climb the hill. I took the short cut by tunneling through it instead. But as of 4/30/15 I'm starting on a new way of staying young. It was told to me ten years...

    I have a hard time relating to the majority of

    people my own age. (I'm in my 20s). My best friend is the only person my age I feel I can really connect with and I think she may have an old soul too. but the majority of my friends at at least 5 to 10 years older than me.

    It's been relatively recently

    that a friend of mine has labeled me an old soul, but as long as I can remember, I've had a curious mind. I had a friend once who called it a seeking mind - the ability to be open to other ideas and spiritualities. My favorite summary of the old soul is the constant search for...

    It's hard to say something like,

    "I'm an old soul" because the logical next step is to ask how many lifetimes you've had. I can't prove or disprove reincarnation, in fact someone very close to me was certain he'd had a past life and I believe him fully. Myself on the other hand, I don't have any past life...

    My Grandma used to tell me all the time, 'You have an old soul." I had a vague sense of what she meant, but not enough to grasp the significance of her words. Now, I have a deeper understanding of the phrase, and this is how my "old soul" has manifested itself during this life...

    I think Old souls can learn a thing

    or two from younger ones. We can learn how to be comfortable with competition, how to put in the effort to work a bit more in this world to get things done. They can get results. Younger souls who are busy chasing the materials in life, we might look at them and think they don't...

    "No Choice In The Matter"

    I am an old soul because I had to grow up faster and take on responsibilities that weren't mine to bear. I also had to become closed off and tolerate very bad acts that were forced on me, and I was threatened. I truly believe to this day that they were not empty threats because...

    Here's the thing..if you feel you are an old
