I say that we must stop trying to adhere to societal examples of where we should be at any given point in our lives. Yeah, some younger people have more experiences than me and I am vastly more experienced and capable of thought more so than some of the elderly. It is just the way things are. Worrying about what others have done with their lives is a fruitless endeavor and only serves to degrade your morale even further.
How do I feel about being so unusual for my age? I don't really care. I have long since embraced the axiom that I am an awkward individual who hasn't had many of the typical life experiences and doesn't enjoy typical boisterous activities that the so called "normies" (for lack of a better word) enjoy. I have merely accepted my lot in life and let my awkwardness envelop me.
Does that mean I won't accept relationships or a circumstantial change in the future? No. It just means that these changes will be done and accepted on my terms rather than me adhering to other people's standards like I have done in my youth.
"I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let... lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may."
Thats a good way to look at it. But surely it must be unpleasant when like everyone your age experienced, say, relationships and u didnt right?
idk because, usually I am the one who has experienced more? I usually am the one, I mean I have a pilot licence and stuff, Also been bunjie jumping and skydiving, ya know?
Thats great, it must feel really awesome knowing that you experienced so many cool things like that. Those are two things i want oto try, flying a plane and skydiving.
I feel positive, i think. I like that fact, that im unusual. Sometimes i`m happy that im not like other guys. Sometimes i want to be like them)
Thats a positive perspective

When it comes to love and relationships (and whatnot), I feel angry. It's jealousy more than anything but at the same time I feel like I shouldn't rush it. Even still, I myself have had opportunities that I didn't take because of my cowardice. It's because of that why I'll always feel such regret for my time in high school. I had so much opportunity then that I didn't fully grasp.
So, when it comes to younger folk having more experience than me, it's just jealousy at play. Not much else I can add to that.
As for my peers, I always managed to wind up feeling out of the loop or behind because everyone just had everything set out for them. Take my position while I was in university, for instance: They were all working--I wasn't, they all had networking skills that I simply couldn't copy nor emulate well enough, most of my peers had experienced a lot of things that I simply hadn't. Relationships is one thing, but they've had to deal with other adult things that I hadn't.
Put simply, I didn't see college/university has a means to "let loose" and "experiment" because I didn't need to. I know what acting recklessly gets you and I know what being responsible means. Obviously, I'm not the kind of person you invite to a party but I don't have my objections to it.
What made it more difficult for me to relate to my peers is that I'm just very ignorant on a lot of things. I don't know squat about sports, cars, politics, living alone, taxes, etc.
I never had anything to talk about because I simply haven't done a lot.
Sadly enough, the same thing is starting to happen at my internship as I'm finding that it's not easy to relate to lots of my co-workers.
I feel, i have pretty much gi en up on trying to relate to people in general. Im only really staying alive so i can find people like me. Jealouxy sucks but you must not let any problems affect you emotionally if you want to be truly happy in life. I used to be miserable all the time but i decided why should i be miserable, so now im happy. I still have a messed up life of missing out and a mountain of problems, but i dont mind too much and im often happy despite it
Stuff like having a girlfriend it does hit the heart a bit but other things I don't let it bother me. Never was into drinking and parties and stuff like that. The other stuff like, maybe traveling and that front also doesn't bother me since it kinda out of my hands because I don't have funds to do it anyway.
Being how I am for so long I deal with it and mostly indifferent now.

Yeah when other people, especially unworthy people, have a girlfriend and you know that you might never have one, it suks lol
If I think about it too much it does get me down, but distracting myself helps for a while.
Distracting to me feels like running away
It bothers me when people start talking about the 'cool' things they do or did in the past. It bothers me even more when they expect to hear your stories and you have nothing interesting to share. It kinda makes me feel insecure, will I ever be able to be in a relationship when I haven't had any friend in years, or did leave home to have some fun?
That sucks. Well screw people, at least you can now choose to make your life into a good life
I don't care anymore. I stay calm even about that I not gonna experience even half of it during all my life. I already got used to it.
I don't care about it myself, but I care how other people see me (and would see me). Big difference between the two though.
Ahh. I feel like there is no need to worry about peoples opinions, they can think whatever twisted looney thoughts they want
