“How old would you be if you did not know your age? »Satchel Paige
There are some people in our world who find themselves alone and isolated, almost since they were born.
Their solitary existence does not come from a preference or an unsocial temperament, they are simply old. Old in heart, old in spirit and old in soul, this person is an old soul who has a very different and mature conception of life than those around him. Therefore, he lives his inner life, traces his own lonely path while the people around him flock to another path. Maybe you have experienced it in your life, or know someone who has experienced it? If so, this article is for you, hoping you will succeed in defining yourself, or better understanding someone else.
Here are 9 signs that indicate that you are an old soul:
1 – You tend to be an isolated solitary
Because old souls are losing interest in the activities and interests of people in the same age group, they find it unsatisfying to become friends with people if they have trouble identifying with them. As a result, old souls tend to be alone most of the time.
2 – You like knowledge, wisdom, and truth
It seems a little too grandiose and noble, but the old soul is naturally attracted to the intellectual side of life. Old souls instinctively understand that knowledge is power, wisdom is happiness, and the truth is freedom, so why not look for these things? These searches are more meaningful to them than the latest celebrity gossip, or the latest football results.
3 – You are inclined to spirituality
4 – You understand the ephemeral nature of life
5 – You are thoughtful and introspective
6 – You look at things as a whole
It is rare that old souls waste their time in details like having useless diplomas, job promotions, doing surgery and having a bigger television. Old souls tend to look at life from an overview, to see the most judicious and useful way of approaching life.
When faced with problems, old souls tend to see them as transient and temporary pains that simply serve to increase the joy felt in the future. Therefore, old souls tend to be calm in nature, stable because of their approach to life.
7 – You are not materialistic
Wealth, status, celebrity and the latest version of the Iphone …. Old souls have nothing to do with it. The old soul does not see the point of looking for things that can easily be taken from him. Moreover, old souls have little time and interest in the ephemeral things of life because they have little meaning or take a long time to be fulfilled.
8 – You were a strange child, socially inappropriate
This is not always the case, but many old souls are more mature than children their age. Often these children are labeled as “early”, “introverted”, or “rebellious” because they do not fit into traditional behaviors. Usually, these children are extremely curious and intelligent, they see the uselessness of many things said by their teachers and their parents, and they resist them passively or actively. If you can talk to your child as if it were an adult, you probably have an old soul in your hands.
9 – You feel old
Before putting a name on how I felt, I sometimes had the feeling of being simply “an old person” inside. In principle the feelings that accompany an old soul are: a feeling of mistrust of the world, a mental fatigue, and a detached calm. Unfortunately, people often see them as distant and cold people, but it is only one of the many myths about old souls.
For example, some seniors describe themselves as “young at heart” and others who are very young describe themselves as “old-minded”
