People My Age

They still want to go out and party and have a lack of responsibility that I just don't understand. Maybe it's because I have a child. Or that I think of myself as an old soul. Or have been in a long term relationship. But it's relatively frustrating. I'm fine with being friends with people much older than me or much younger than me; it really doesn't matter. A lot of people I like to talk to are 5-10 years older. It just seems they understand more and are more down to earth. The handful of friends I have around my age have been there since high school. But even with them, we're just not as close as we used to be. I find it sad sometimes, but try to think of it as a good thing. Not sure how feeling like i'm in my 30's when I'm in my early 20's is a good thing, but still. I'm learning to put myself out there a bit more and embrace the people I do find I can connect with. Maybe having older friends will enrich my life!
