Growing older can be strange and interesting at the same time. Lately I’ve been thinking about people I knew way back in elementary and high school. I’m wondering if Facebook is playing a part in this. It’s interesting to see how people have changed and how their lives have taken shape. But I find it more interesting to see how they haven’t changed. Little traits that they held as young children still show through in their adult lives.
It is fascinating at the same time but very strange to me. My Mom once told me that no matter how old you get you still think the same. She didn’t mean you always reason as a child, but the same insecurities and fears can grip you in your adult years just as they did in your childhood. Certain characteristics such as being uncomfortable talking in front of a crowd can be just as difficult in grade school as it is in a meeting when you are 35. Life is interestign and fascinating at the same time.
