When people meet me they tend to say things like "oh you're so young", which often throws me off guard because despite my physical age, I feel much older than my years. My Mum says I've been like that since a child, I was always quite serious and contemplative. I remember visiting Toronto as a child (which was the big city compared to where I grew up in suburban Nova Scotia) and giving all my spending money to the homeless and vowing that I would one day open a shelter (and this was before I started primary school!)
I'm a worrier by nature and I tend to be overly sensitive toward others (hence studying Social Work in University and becoming a vegetarian). My man is 13 years my senior but I don't notice it until others mention it, because to me, we are on the same page in life. Sometimes I get along better with colleagues my parents' age than my peers and my days of drinking excessively and dancing the night away are far behind me. That's not to say I don't like to have fun, I'm eccentric and silly (and love children activies like playing board games and visiting Lego Land), but sometimes I feel like I'm a 54 year old trapped in a 24 year old body..which to me is the best of both worlds!
Do you act your own age or do you feel younger or older than your physical self?
