Old is thinking you know all of the questions and writing out the answers to them in advance.

Old is refusing to change your answers even if they have nothing to do with the actual questions that present themselves.

Old is being afraid to learn something new, or thinking that you’ll never master it because it’s been so long since you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone. So rather than trying you give up before it even begins.

Old is worrying about getting old.

Old is judging other people by their age. Or gender. Or race. Or sexual orientation. Or class.

Old is shoving yourself and others into boxes based on these things.

Old is parroting what someone else said without ever stopping to consider whether you truly agree with them.


All of us will age. Not all of us will grow old.
