Blogging, Introvert/extrovert/HSP, oil paintings


…is a funny thing.

When I see little kids playing soccer I want to be nine years old again.

When I see teenager girls talk talk talk and laugh laugh laugh I definitly not want to be a teen again.

When I see babies in stroller I think it would be nice being a baby again, that my parents take care of all day long.

When I see those who have lifelong vacation after a long work life, I’m perfectly happy with my own age, when I see their health issues.

Somehow age is an illusion to me. We are as young or old as we feel. It’s not the years that counts, it’s your experiences and your sence that makes your age, I think.

I found a fresh blog written by a person, which have thoughts that could have been my thoughts twentyfive years ago. But I’d never dared to share them at that age. This twenty year old writer is braver than I was 🙂

This was the post I found:
It is difficult to change… Introvert, Loneliness, Depression

    1. I found out over the years that you seldom need to feel jealous about other peoples lifes. Very often there seems to be another side of their happy life stories. So I’m very happy with my life as it is.

  3. With age as with everything else, there are always trade-offs. I wouldn’t want to be an infant, child, teen or anything but what I am. Now, I am were I belong and where I am at home. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

  4. Everyone has their past regrets which they wants to change. But I think you are right we should be happy where we are. Can’t change the past and don’t know the future.

  5. Age is just a number. Some very young people are wise beyond their years, old souls if you will. Some very old people are unwise, obliviously to the world around and what it could’ve taught them if only they’d listened.
