I turned 26 six months ago and yeah I do admit I'm starting to feel insecured about my age, I miss my teenage years were I can be rebellious, carefree, cool and badass. I just dont feel like that anymore. I use to have tattoos cos i feel cool with them but because of my age, and I will be 30 in few years, I decided to have them removed. Its my process of trying to be age appropriate. for sure I should not feel unattractive just because I am not young anymore. I have no problems with my body but and I think I still look the same but I felt unattractive cos I lost that youthful spark I use to have. I lost that energy that I use to have. I guess I changed cos I lived on my own in the last 4 years. I dont knows with this crazy changes, i felt like I'm losing that rebel inside me. I'm losing that spunk.

There are certainly many things that I know now that would have been extremely usefull to me earlier in my life; things that could have been saved me from many of the mistakes I suffered over the years.

I want to sneak in the census, cheat my birth certificate, I want to turn my birthday from 1985 to 1990... I hate it when the year is ending.

I think that I can still recognize myself, even my less independent scared self, it still looks similar to me. They day I can't find myself (my little girl self, teen self, adult self) that will be the day I give up on myself.

Almost everyone goes through that phase in life it's just a matter of how you handle that change. You could try going to the gym to build up your body. You could try to hit the bars gain just like the way you used to. You can live the way you want to live your life. You can do many things to make you feel young again. You can travel, study more, invest or even meet the girl of your dreams if you want to.

there are just things that I wish i can stilldo but I felt like its not age appropriate anymore. Plus inmy country 30 is considered old. I am not 30 yet but now I am 26 I am already fearing for my youth.

throughout my years i am bit confused what meaning my life has exactly. and how i am going to find that meaning. however i did able to find the some aspects of my naure. but that is not ample enough to describe yourself.

if given a chance I wanted immortality. I want to explore this world until God or the aliens decided to destroy this planet.

Hi Captain Seems you are feeling depressed again Buddy, cheer up. There are many more things that you can do at 26 than at 38 I miss my teens and even the 20s too. But then, evolution is a fact and I am thankful that I am more kiddy these days than I was when I was in my 20s. Maybe my UC has to do with it - you know, kind of things like - you dont have to dress professionally, you can go with whatever you feel like - things that werent that easy when I was in 20s and working at office. Today, I work at home, a loners life but yes, I have learned the ways and still am learning how to cope up

The tattoo? Ah you can have one on your arm and age has nothing to do with it... but yes, as you mentioned earlier, you are not a WWE guy and so dont opt for those biggies... a small and more decent one - I am sure you can carry that with flair. All the best for January. Plan out something great for January then. Maybe the tattoo or a time out for a small vacation with your favorite books and writing kit

I am 35 and I have changed a lot since I was in my 20's. I was very and free and independent when I was in my 20's. I travelled a lot and I lived and worked in other countries for a while. Today I am married and I have bills and responsibilites that I didn't have when I was in my 20's, but I like the life that I have today. I have given up the life that I had when I moved from place to place and tried lots of different things during short periods of time, but I am not the least bit sad that I am older today or sad that I live a different life today. If someone had told me when I was 20 that I would buy a house one day and stay at the same place for a long time I wouldn't have believed them but today I am perfectly happy that way.

I want to travel, I wanted to feel carefree and free just like what I use to be. I dont want to care about bills and taxes anymore. I want to tour around the world and I also wanted to be relevant in history. I want to be relevant in history

You're getting too conscious with your physical looks capt. Ya, the youthful sparks may vanish, but most people looks lovelier as they grows older.

I actually still look the same fromwhen I was 20 but I felt so different and I dont know why I did actions like removing my tattoos.
