How do you stop yourself from feeling old 👵🏻😔?

So I'm turning 20 in two days and oh gosh.. That's two decades! I feel like I must start writing my will since I could die any day from old age. I can feel the arthritis setting in. I feel compelled to read The Wall Street Journal. Death is looking over my shoulder as I write this!
What can I do to make myself stop feeling so old? 😭 I swear I'm not just being silly I feel really ancient guys..

  • Stop thinking like that. If you think your old then you will start feeling old. Change that mind set. Go out and have fun for your birthday. Go clubbing drink listen to music and dance the night away. Enjoy your youth. Your not 30 or 40 yet. Don't act like your old.

  • :(
    I turned 20 4 weeks ago...
    Does that make me old? :(
    Do things you did as a little kid like going to the playground and trying out the swings or the climbing equipment. I sometimes go to the playground with my boyfriend for fun and it makes me feel like I'm a little girl again.
    Go to a ice cream shop and taste all the flavours as 'tasters' and eventually choose the most chocolaty one like all kids do.
    Go to the beach and chase the waves and run away from them.
    There are so many things that you can do which can remind you of your childhood :)

  • Welcome to adult life. I do know one thing that might work. I know a person that could make you feel young again, almost like brand new. He says he can't do things that facial surgeon can do, but the inside can be made new.

    • Ehh that's kinda creepy tbh

    • I forgot that you don't like guys, this wouldn't work on you. Maybe just change you mind set, there are a lot of positive things about growing up, senior discounts, more mature relationships, handicap parking, and the most important of all; some people don't get to be old, they die young. You have life, even though it might be draining fast you still have it

  • Do something that makes you feel like a kid again. :P. I always feel like a youngster at an amusement park. :). Just hop on a roller coaster. ;). Then scream like a kid again. :D.

  • Achieve things, make money, have a stable income, have fruitful relationships with the opposite sex and form strong relationships with people, so as you grow, the effects of growing older are lessened.

  • I was like Peter Pan for all my life but you see it couldn't help me and I am 19 now.
    But I always feel myself young.
    Realize your youth while you have it.
    Youth is condition of mind not a body.
    I don't remember who said "If you want to never get old do the same crazy things and mistakes you did in youth." I do this everytime 😂
    You are not only one who thinks about death. You are afraid of it, you choose life. It is youth.
    You are young,
    I am young,
    We are young.

  • Well, how about focusing on all the amazing things being 20 involves? If we would focus on the negative things of each stage in our lifes, no one would be happy. Put a smile on ur face now! You are 20! Still young, but independent! U can work, travel, try different hobbies. There's so much out there, enjoy and look at the possitive things :)

  • I felt the same way when turning 18, 20, and 21. You just have to cry in your bed for a while and then suck it up. It's what I did. xD

  • Simple change the way you think, and never lose your humor... you are as old as you think if you think old you become old, if you are active and think young so shall you be, it all starts in the mind regardless of your age.
