13 Signs You Are An Old Soul Trapped In A Young Body

You feel more like a fifty year old than a twenty year old.

13 Signs You Are An Old Soul Trapped In A Young Body

"The old soul doesn't see the purpose of pursuing things that can be easily taken away from them. Additionally, old souls have little time and interest for the short-lived things in life, as they bring little meaning or long lasting fulfillment for them."

Here are 13 signs you may be an old soul:

1. You spend a lot of time doing things on your own.

You tend to be alone, and enjoy it. You likely have well developed social-skills, yet still choose to spend your days alone. This is not because of anxiety or depression, but rather something you are comfortable doing and seek out.

2. You are very inquisitive.

Because of this, you may find yourself spending a lot of time reading, learning, and exploring new things. You probably ask a lot of questions about the world and the things that happen in it.

3. You're not like the people your age.

You'd rather stay in on a Friday night instead of going out to that party everyone else is attending. Maybe the other college age people think you're boring, or even anti-social, but you're just doing you.

4. You're responsible and independent.

And you always have been. You're unusually stable and reliable for your age, every since you were a small child.

5. You're extremely sensitive.

You're an empath. You truly care about others and what they have to say.

6. Mainstream society seems silly to you.

You don't always understand the hype and excitement of things people your physical age are into. You don't always care, for that matter.

7. You're friends with people more than twice your age.

You relate to them better. They may even forget you're young enough to be their child.

8. You're more mature than most.

You're wise beyond your years, and it shows. You're the source of advice for your friends.

9. You value deep connections.

Quality over quantity. Surface-level relationships aren't for you.

10. You're early to bed and early to rise.

Your bedtime is 9pm, after all. If you sleep past 8am, you're sick.

11. Reading on a kindle?

Why would you do that? You'd much rather have the real thing in hand, so you can feel the pages and mark up notes in the margins.

12. You feel you were born in the wrong era.

You relate to other time periods and cultures much more than your own. You dream of what it would be like to live back then.

13. You're perfectly content the way you are.

Other's probably don't understand you, but you don't mind. You wouldn't change for the world.

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
