    When you lose your inner child
    That won't ever happen to me, I'm forever young in that way

    (Original post by claireestelle)
    I feel very lucky that two of my grandparents are still going at 76, dad being so young did shift my perception of age massively but it does make me make the most of life so there's some good out of an awful experience i suppose.
    All but one of my grandparents have passed away (when they were in their 80s) and my grandma is doing pretty well at 87 - so I've been luckily in that way. My dad was an older parent and was 45 when I was born. He was 61 when he passed away but always seemed younger as he was so energetic.

    87 is an amazing age Age is also a mentality thing for many people I suppose.

    mostly because i couldn't see the point of living beyond that because there isn't really anything to aim for or structure to life
    ironically it was some ppl on TSR that showed me that this doesn't necessarily have to be the case

    Really depends on what context. I'd say you're getting on a bit once you hit your 30th birthday, whereas 30 is an incredibly young age to die, for example. I'm just the wrong side of 25 and I feel like I'm getting old already, purely because I can't behave a certain way around people my own age anymore without appearing to be immature.
