    I can't say I like getting older, since eventually that means I'll die... but I'm loving my 40's. I feel younger now than I have for a very long time.

    Most people think I'm in my late 20's or around 30. That's where I have seemed to "lodge," and I hope that's where I'll stay regardless of bio-age.

    I don't mind. Especially when I'm 29 and most people think I'm 24.

    Not yet, but I most certainly will once the E.D. sets in.

    I'd like to be 25 and permanently stay there.

    The thought of getting older depresses the hell out of me. I'm in my early thirties so according to life expectancy, I have a significant part of my life yet ahead. Yet, I look at what I've done so far, and don't feel like I've done all that much. There's so much I want to do and learn and accomplish and the reality is, there just isn't going to be time for it all.

    Maybe I'm just going through an existential depression right now because I compare myself to peers close to my age and they seem like they've experienced and accomplished far more than I have.

    The only thing I look forward to about getting older is more wisdom and life experience to draw upon. But it seems like everything else progressively declines. Physically, you start getting more ailments. You're not as physically fit as you once were. You get around slower and with more difficulty. Get old enough, and its likely your hearing and vision will start to go. Mentally, you start having more trouble remembering things and you don't think quite as quickly. Your reaction time goes down. The one advantage though, is having a greater knowledge base to draw upon. And appearance wise, it goes downhill. You start getting wrinkles, your hair starts going gray, you start losing hair, etc.

    That's why I see 25 as the optimal age in several ways. Its kind of when physical fitness, mental agility, and looks are at their peak. Actually the 18-25 age range sounds good to me but I prefer 25 to 18 because I think at 25, you have a stronger sense of self-identity. You know yourself better, what kind of people you want to have relationships with, what your ideal career is, etc. At 18, you're kind of figuring it all out.

    Yeah .. I don't mind.

    There is equilibrium where there was none before.
    There is more security in myself.. and less concern for what others think .. and yet much more compassion and understanding for others.

    It helps that I look 10 years younger than I am.

    Mostly I'm neutral, but maybe one day I'll stop being ID'd. grrr. Apparently I still look like a teenager.

    I'll probably start disliking it around 30 or 40, though.

    Maybe you're going through existential depression becuase you are comparing yourself to your peers? Very bad for anyone's mental health I know quite a few people who do this and they are never happy becuase there is always someone who is doing "better", "more", etc.

    Figure out what will make you happy and what you want to accomplish then give yourself mad credit when you reach your goals (and to hell with what everyone else is doing). That'll help make you happy no matter what your age. Easier said than done, I know but trust me...it works
