Age may be just a number, but it also provides some insight into how you really act as a person. For example, someone who's 90 years old on the outside may feel like a 15-year-old on the inside. This doesn't make them immature; it means that they have a youthful and playful spirit that enjoys life. On the other hand, someone that is young in age may actually be wise beyond their years. But what does wisdom have to do with the age of your soul?
Wisdom is compounded knowledge that stems from both good and difficult life experiences. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that you have to go skydiving or travel the world to gain wisdom, but those with a wise soul tend to open their hearts and minds to other people. They use every opportunity to learn and grow more, even if that means failing at something. This can also lead to a strong sense of maturity, as well as newfound meanings about life. So don't be afraid of getting older, because life is full of wisdom, adventures and a few surprises. Tell us more about your life so we can determine how old your soul really is!
