Have Been Told This....

One of my friends circle on here has said it a few times and I have always thought it about myself as well. I am 27 but feel a lot older in my soul, kind of like I have led several lives. That's not to say I have all the answers of how the world works as I certainly don't but I feel like an old soul in the way I think and feel. I appreciate things in life that others my age pass by and dont even recognize. I find comfort and meaning in nature and see things in others that they dont see in themselves.
I am maternal towards others, even others much older then myself. I am a true nurturer.
It's hard to explain really but perhaps its my life experiences that have made me this way. Either way, I kind of like it.

If you feel this way you probably are. My new son in law is completely new born. Try tracking back.

dont worry your not the only one like this. There are a few of us.

Yes x

I think you are an old soul Jenni..Still, you have a young body and a new heart....so, I want you to enjoy your youth and have some fun if you can darling! :-) I know this is easier said than done, but, it is possible to live just for yourself .....now and then....even if it's only for a few minutes each day.

I get that, just hard when you dont have anyone to do fun things with.

I have taken myself on trips, and to dinner, lunch, breakfast..on drives, and the odd thing is, people will offer conversation more freely when they see someone alone, it's kind of fun if you can get into it.

You just described me in this. :) I'm 24 and I too feel older than what I am. Mom says I'm wise beyond my years. :) its is our experiences that shaped us like this and I love it :)

Yes, I do think it is experiences that shape us.
