19 Things That Happen When You Really Start To Feel Your Age
You know you're getting old when you can't remember how old you are.
Then all of a sudden you get a really bad hangover after only two glasses of wine and it's all about to go DOWNHILL.
And the occasional PANG in your knee.
Soon you're not feeling so great in a LOT of places that you didn't even know you could feel pain.
Your attention switches from joint pain to skin as you notice your pores are WAY more visible than they used to be.
Before you know it, you've spent $400 on a 10-step skincare routine.
Suddenly you realise it takes a full 12 seconds to scroll to your birth year on a drop down menu.
You meet someone who was born in 2001 — and they're not a toddler.
Your birthdays all mesh into one memory, and sometimes you forget how old you are.
You panic as you come to understand there is no going back now.
Panic slowly turns into acceptance as you realise it's not all bad.
You actually start to feel positive and excited to get older.
Although, you tend to think back to all the naps you passed up as a kid with major regret.
You're actually enjoying things you used to hate, like browsing homeware stores.
All of a sudden your friends start to get married and have kids.
You start to feel a bit inadequate and like you're a failure.
And then you remember: You actually don't care. Because you're an adult! You can make your own decisions!
