Are you joking? I'm assuming you have no wrinkles or age spots, why do you say you look 30? You don't even know what a person in their 30s supposed to look like lol.

At 18 I thought I was too old
At 24 I thought I was over the hill
At 30 I thought this is my life passing before my eyes
At 35 I realised I spent wasted many years thinking I was too old.

If you don't start enjoying life now you'll be a 35 year old regretting every second of your youth wasted on feeling old.

I didn't begin to feel even slightly old until about 27 when I was playing on the play equipment with my 4 year old son. I do have to admit that I have recently been feeling older and am frustrated by it at age 61 but I'm working out the kinks in that by planning my life for the next 20 years.

It isn't mentally healthy to constantly reflect on the past and that keeps you from moving forward. It appears OP wants to still be a child. I happily left that era!

I still don't feel old at 61 but then, we have a lot of elderly where we live and they tend to call us "kids".

21?? When I was 19, I met a new friend. She was lamenting how her life was over at age....22

Every age has so much to offer! Just get out there and live life!

I am waaay past 21. At 53, I have new challenges to meet.

If you are constantly looking behind you...how can you ever learn to appreciate what is right here in front of you...today?

Just drink a toast to age 21.....

I also felt old at that age, and a few years later, I still do. I think it's a pretty common feeling.
It's not true, though, we're not old at all.

I need your opinions about age 21, is it too old? I feel like i cant do anything this age anymore like i did in my late teens, i feel very nostalgic about the past, i feel like im peaking in appearance and looks and aging fast to the point where i look like im 30 already.

the difference between 16 and 21 is 5 years not that bad, but I still feel so old since im not a teen anymore and now im an adult.


Try to do the things u love, don't dwell on it before time keeps on going till your older.
