Thread: "An old soul"

    I've turned into an old soul. People generally use it disparagingly, however, and try to remedy it by dragging me out to the nearest bar. As if that's gonna help.

    You should stymie their efforts by ordering some old person drink.

    I would like to understand it so that old souls are those who have experienced more than one life. Is it true, I don't know. I would like to believe in reincarnation but I'm not so sure about it. So, I'm open to a possibility of old souls as being the ones gone through reincarnation.

    Old souls are souls that have been reincarnated for more times than any other souls that come before - Mature, Young, etc.
    They're generally characterized by wiseness, quickest learning among souls, emphasis towards one-on-one intimate relationships, a tendency to hide from excessive involvement in world's affairs, depression hitting from time to time, low neuroticism.

    That's basically it.

    I remember when I was 12 and thinking of myself as "old as time" -- because I seemed to think about life in ways that only middle/late-aged adults seemed to, and the rest of my peer group was so focused on the current superficial (to me) interests. I also felt like I had experienced my fair share of pain and there wasn't much left to explore, emotionally.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I've read about this before. I relate to the description of the old soul the most, and a lot of people have called me an old soul before. However, I don't actually beleive that stuff. It's nothing more than a fun read and perhaps another way to explain human behavior to me. A person can just naturally act like that, or like anything else. I don't beleive it necessarily means that they have an "old" soul.

    Oh gawd, I have been told that my entire life (even from my high school counselor), as well as being called "an old man".

    I guess it would mean that I am very mature. When I was little I preferred to sit and listen to the adults rather than play with the kids my age. I could watch other children my age and see that they were "selfish brats" or "whiny crybabies". I could tell the difference between right and wrong. I was never punished as a child because my parents only needed to tell me once and I would never do it again.

    Maybe it means that we have a higher degree of prudence and wisdom than what is typical for people our age.
