Old soul in a young body

Old Soul… we have all heard it somewhere, sometime or other, right? But what does it mean? An old soul can be described as someone who doesn't fit in with mainstream things. They have their own way of doing things and seem to be very wise. This seems very much like me but because there are so many things that define “old soul” I've put together a list of some of the characteristics of old souls…

Think deeply about things

You always seem to be thinking about things people your age shouldn’t be thinking about. Life and death, peace and war e.c.t.  Your mind is always wondering. You seem to be in your little world.

Enjoy your own company

You could sit for hours in your own company. Whether reading, listening to music or watching TV, you don’t need to have people around you to enjoy yourself. You also don’t mind going to the movies on your own.

Simple things in life that matter

You are not so worried about big extravagant things, for you it’s the smaller things that count. Small gestures.

Memories more than possessions

For you it’s not all about worldly possessions. You value time spent with family and friends. Going for a picnic or going to a theme park and making memories.

Empathetic and Compassionate

No matter what has happened you will always show empathy for everyone and everything. You can understand where people are coming from and feel for them no matter what they are going through.

Wear your heart on your sleeve

Being an old soul you are emotional and don’t care what others think about it. You cry in heart sore movies and even when you bump you toe. You declare your love for the people you care about.

Value strong friendships

You value deep friendships with a few people than having meaningless friendships with many people. Getting to know someone deeply is what you want.

Born in the wrong generation

You constantly feel like you were born in the wrong generation. Like you should have been born in the 20’s. You act older and can understand when elderly people from that era talk.

Old things

You love how people from the older generations used to act. From the 30’s, hand written letters and women being courted. The 60’s and 70’s, being a hippy and not having a care in the world. Your soul yearns for that.

Easy to be around

People tend to gravitate towards you because of your nature. You are caring and people love being in your company. You have no drama and just go with the flow.

Don’t always fit in with people your age

Even though you might be in your 20’s you don’t always enjoy what people your age like. You might like music from the 80’s or not want to go out clubbing.

I look at the list and realize that for the most part I am an old soul. I honestly do feel like I was born into the wrong generation. I long to be a hippy, not caring about anything. Sleeping under the stars and going to festivals. Being all loving and caring. But unfortunately I’m caged in this body with an old soul wishing to be set free.  Seems like that is the nature of a Pisces…

Do you have an old soul?
