what’s my age again?

You know what? I’ve always felt just a little different.
When it comes to connecting with others my age, it can somehow feel inorganic to me. I feel fulfilled when I surround myself with people and activities that can give me something back; compassion, experience, wisdom, perspective.

Sometimes, things that seem to be fun for other people my age just don’t stimulate me. It makes me feel a sense of emptiness, and I’m quick to nail my flaws for not fitting into the cookie-cut mold I’m supposed to belong. I tell myself that I’m supposed to be all la-dee-da. I’m not proud that nothing seems easy about me.

But then, there are those times when I feel so young and reckless, so wildly free. And I remember that I’m vibrating with life and youth. And it’s okay that I don’t always align with everyone.

Because there are all kinds of people and things that set my heart ablaze and make me feel alive.

They’re all around me.

  1. I SO 150% get this. Its horrible feeling… but I don’t feel it when I do things I enjoy, when I’m just at peace to be myself.
    And some how I feel more connected to little kids, and Nana, than my peers. Age doesn’t mean anything – it the experiences that count.
