You've heard it before, but we'll say it again: age is just a number. It doesn't define you, or necessarily say anything about your experiences or intellect.
Some people mature much faster than others and feel significantly older than their actual age. These people, wise beyond their years with strong emotional intelligence, often consider themselves old souls.
Here are some signs you've got an old soul inside you:
1. You crave spending time alone.
2. Your friends always seek your advice because they know how wise you are.
3. You don't get caught up in petty drama.
4. You have a thirst for learning that can never be quenched.
5. When it comes to friends, you value quality over quantity.
6. You focus on the solution rather than the problem.
7. You never get FOMO.
8. You were comfortable holding a conversation with adults long before you were one.
9. You don't waste your time in relationships that are obviously not going anywhere.
10. You appreciate the little things.
11. People are often surprised when they find out how old you are.
And, sometimes, you hate telling them.
