Have you ever felt disconnected from all the things that trouble today’s generation? Maybe you prefer the simpler life? There are times when you feel that your views and opinions, resonate with someone much older than you and you find it hard to connect with people your age. Despite the fact that you’re still young, you approach life with a sense of maturity and a perspective that cannot be understood. If so, the chances that you’re an old soul are very high. Here are some distinctive signs to help you figure out if you are indeed one.
People often turn to you for advice when they are stuck in a troubling situation. Many times, you find yourself being able to give advice about things or situations that you haven’t experienced yet. You’re the go-to person when it comes to offering solutions. In fact, you’re sometimes so accurate and good, you surprise yourself.
Whatever you do, you always give it a 100%! Whether you like it or not, if you’ve committed to it, you’ll do it with all your heart. For an old soul, it’s not about instant appreciation and gratification. It’s more about quality over quantity. This doesn’t only apply to work, it’s just generally how you are. You’re always looking for new experiences and challenges which often means that you will take up new things, just to learn about it.
Anyone who enters your life has a special place. That’s also because you don’t really allow a lot of people in. You might have a lot of friends but the people who you’re super close with are just a handful. Each of them is important and you’re always going out of your way to make sure they’re okay.
You’re not bothered about all the latest trends and stuff. The things that would be a priority for many others of your generation, simply aren’t as important for you. You’d much rather invest your time and money in something that would make you happy and create a memory, like a vacation or something.
Most of your friends or acquaintances are older than you. For some reason, you find a complete disconnect with people your age. You find their priorities questionable and the conversations they have, seem drab. Good conversations and learning new things is a priority for you and that usually comes from people who’re much older than you.
You like helping people out and giving back. To an old soul, the true meaning of life is giving back. Time and money hold no real importance, other than being able to facilitate you being able to help others. While many people think you’ve got an inflated ego, you know the truth is far from it. You know you’ve got one life so you try to help as many people as possible, without expecting much in return.
For an old soul, nothing is more important than learning. You’re always up for learning something new. When you fumble and someone corrects you, you don’t take it to heart, instead, you thank them for the new knowledge. You walk through life with a lot more attention to detail than others because you know that there is something to be gained, from the smallest things. Anything that can help you gain personal growth is something you’d consider a priority.
