But then, as they say, "Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is optional".
I'm almost 40. I remember when my parents were 40 and they were grown-ups. I don't feel like that. Does everyone feel like they don't belong to their group?
I don't think I've ever felt like the age I'm meant to be (if that makes sense ).
Yes it does.
I find it strange now because i'm the youngest in my family and i've always been babied, but now i'm taking care of things for my parents. I phone and sort out any problems they can't deal with themselves. I drive in my car when we go somewhere out of town together, instead of me being the passenger in their car. They look at me for advice now and I find that a bit hard. Just reminds me that we're getting older. I liked it how it was before.
When our parents were infallible and omniscient you mean. Funny how they seem to know less when you get older.
Somehow 44 seemed a lot younger than 45!!
