Old in heart, old in mind and old in soul, old souls have an outlook towards life which is vastly different and more matured than those around them. Old person trapped in a young person’s body. Sounds too long and boring? Let’s shorten it, shall we? From now on this particular sect of people will be called “Yoldies”! Are you one of the yoldies? Let’s find out-
Yoldies by default have an understanding that knowledge is supreme, wisdom is bliss and truth is liberating, so why not seek after those things? If all the things mentioned above mean more to you than reading up on the latest gossip about Snooki’s latest boyfriend, or about the party next door. Then, behold the winds coz it smells too rotten. Congratulations, you are a certified yoldi!
The girl next door just brought you some house warming cookies. Why not eat all of them with utter disgust and, then never talk to her coz talking to people annoys you. From babies to the youths, literally everyone annoys you. Every. Single. Person.
3. Lonely,Yoldi so lonely
The prospects of hanging out with people in your age group just makes you crawl under your bed sheet and watch the latest episode of a popular sitcom.The result? Yoldies tend to find themselves alone a lot of the time.
Your T-Shirt size is 32 but you buy an XXXL! Wearing loose clothing liberates you and your thoughts. You wear comfortable pants and shoes because WHY IN THE WORLD would you wear anything else? I can give you a clue. TO NOT BE A YOLDI!
You are having a conversation with your junior (About 2-3 year’s younger perhaps) and, you get into the mode of nirvana talking about how thing were done when you were his/her age. Yoldi, Howdy? A sure indication that your life support unit is on its way is when, you unnecessarily tell people only slightly younger than you about “back in my day.”
Don’t get excited. I haven’t launched a new version of Intel Inside! Before putting a name to what you feel, here is a simple assessment to make sure that you are an “old person” inside. The feelings that accompany being an old soul are usually: a feeling of world wariness, mental tiredness, watchful patience, and detached calmness. Unfortunately, this can often be perceived as being aloof and cold! You have to find which one fits your bill!
Getting old is beautiful but, it should happen at the correct age! Otherwise, you are just a Yoldi reading through this blog just to find out one thing that doesn’t resonate with you. Sadly, all are synonyms of your life! Are you still young at heart but in an older body? Prove it to us! Write down the most freakingly awesome thing you have done. Peace out.
