Age…just never the right age?!

A few of us were talking about age a couple of days back. A friend then said how he as a kid used to think that a person born later than him was older than him. (the year was greater than the year he was born in was his funda! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) He used to then change the year he was born to be “older” than the other it seems! ๐Ÿ™‚

Makes me wonder, how most of us want to be either older or younger. As kids, we cannot wait to be older, come close to thirty; we dread the mid-life crisis or whatever…ย and want to be younger (infact have a few acquaintances who have not gone past 25 for the past 7 years! lol!) ย Why cannot we just enjoy the age we are – after all that definitely comes only once in a life time (definitely! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )ย  I don’t remember if I ever wanted to be older when I was a kid; but I definitely don’t think I ever dreaded growing older or hitting thirty. Even now, surrounded by people quite younger than me, I don’t feel old nor do I want to mask my age!?! Am I the strange one?ย  One thing though; I have been told I am pretty immature most of the time – just old chronologically ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe that is why I don’t want to be younger ๐Ÿ˜€
