>>Tomorrow, I turn 47, but in my heart and mind.......I feel 26.Wish the world could see me that way

Exactly. The people who really are 26 don't understand that we feel like they do. They think we're an alien race that belongs in rocking chairs.
Like new music? Enjoy skateboarding?
Then you're "trying to act young", which disgusts people, and they think you should do the things society says older people should do.
I am in college in my late 30's, and I get attitudes from people all the time.

Hey, I'm not here to live up to their expectations of what older people should or shouldn't be doing!

getting oldes doesnt' scare me becuase I know I'll find somebody and you'll either be married with your significant other or you'll find out you want to be a priest, in which God is the only person who is significant to you..........I have my one and only so I don't need to be afraid, the women I'm dating will come down to only one and I know who that is so I'm good.

I'm not scared because I know that once I have a child(which I still don't at 30) I'll be OK, atleast my baby girl/boy will love me and that's all that matters to me. atleast for 18 years, you know, LOL............

Well I cried at 30 and now 35 is around the corner...Is this the coming of midlife?? as in midlife crisis or am I way off...I find myself completing an entire self analysis these days. Yes scared I am.

Getting older doesnt scare because it certainly beats the alternative.

44 and only getting better!!
Posted: 2/24/2007 8:03:44 AM
Each year I get older it only gets better! Getting old doesn't scare me ith the exception of the thought of my body not being able to keep up with my mind and all that I want to do and experience in life. With each birthday life just seems to get more interesting. I am having more fun in my 40's than I did in my 20's. My daughter is at an age now where I can do my own thing and also enjoy her as my friend which is awesome. Some say *life begins at 40 when the dog dies and the kids leave home* at this point I tend to agree. I intend in the next 30 years or more to squeeze every ounce of joy and wonder out of this life and just get better and more desireable doing it!!

No. I am not worried about getting old/older. The only thing that is on my mind is being older and being alone.

But yes, when I was 21 - 27, I had soooo much fun, hanging out late at night, doing all kinds of stuff. Now I am 31, all my friends are marred and it seems that they can't do anything anymore, so it isn't as much fun as it use to be. But, that's just me. I know it can be fun if I really wanted it to be. But, it will be hard to match the fun I had when I was in my mid 20's.

Hell No!!! As someone stated, age is just a number, you are as old as you feel, so sure if you're all depressed and worried all the time, it will take a toll on your life and you will feel like heck so probably "your age" but if you try and live life to it's fullest and for the moment,and enjoy every precious one we are given, you should feel as young as you are old, LOL. Make any sense??LOL

Heck, at 35, I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. So, all has been postponed until further notice. Simple.

Sometimes it's worrisome only because I forever feel I haven't accomplished anything worthwhile yet.
Yes, I agree with some posts that say they have completely changed from who they were in their 20's. I'm one of them. I can say now I probably have more empathy now and I am not so quick to judge anyone.
Now... if only I could get back to my old weight... that would erase the feeling of wasting my 20's...
