This is not something I just realized but felt this post fits perfectly into how I am and always have been. Some will get it, others will not.

The older I get. Dang it. I forgot what I was going to write.



I love it. It could have been written by Hermann Hesse. At age 81, I understand it.

My life my way ?.


Got it at a young age.
No one has to understand anything about me, you or them.
Edit to add : no one is under any compulsion to try getting another to understand either.
Again, don't get it ?
You don't have to.


Damn skippy!

Makes it a lot easier, doesn't it?

Exactly. You eventually realize that your opinion is the only one that counts in your life.


I think that is a natural progression... Your priorities change, as does your attitude/opinion of things that you felt very differently about when you were a kid...Once you are retired, it is time to slow down & enjoy your accomplishments... Doesn't matter flip to me what people think, I am running my own show & don't need any advice or suggestions on how to be more "normal".... Normal is only an average of all kinds of behaviors, anyway, & is grossly over rated as far as I am

Certainly applies to me. Sometimes I don't understand it myself.

jlynn37 Level 8 May 18, 2018

That pretty much sums me up.


Who's Understand? (Think I'm high)

I like it.


I've been going my own way for so long I'm known as the "anti-geist". ?

I get it. And I’m doing it. ?

Mikeb56 Level 7 May 18, 2018

Yep. I can only be me and on my own terms.


Oh yeah.

nvrnuff Level 8 May 18, 2018

I like it. Thanks smile001.gif


I don't have to age to live like that. It's kind of been the story of my whole life.


I kinda live my live the way I want. I try to be kind, but don't push me, I think about and try to do for others. I can't do everything. If you like thats good. If you don't like me that's good also.

kenriley Level 8 May 18, 2018

That's been me since the age 20.

Clauddvon Level 7 May 18, 2018

That really has been my life mantra.


Right on. No time wasted in nonsense.
