Question How different are you...

From you were 10 years ago? Or 5 years ago?

You think you're never going to change, and you will never learn more, but you always do.. you always look back and go... oh, crap.

I have officially decided that as a teenager and 20's are the kind of "I know it all phase" and I was firmly in that camp.... I was in my early 20's when I joined here, and now I am in my early 30's The board felt a lot more firey then - but again, perhaps you only get that perspective depending on where you choose to stand yourself

I wonder what the 30's will be.... I would like to tap into my right hemisphere more in my 30's so if anyone has any ideas about how to do that, let me know I reckon everything before that was all about the left LOL

I think you can look back on every stage of your life and see a change... And at each point, you never imagined you'd be any different

So how about YOU?

I'm only 16 now, but I have changed a ridiculous amount in the past few years. (as do most teens) My best friends say when they first met me (in grade six after I started French Immersion), they thought I was a huge nerd.. which, if you saw pictures, you'd understand. I also used to be incredibly introverted and now I can talk anybody's ear off. The difference between appearance though is the biggest.

I went from..


I'm really looking forward to my 20s and 30s though.. I have quite a few hopes for myself.

I am 33 about to be 34 in a couple months , I look back and just wonder at the things I have seen / done / been put through / put others through.

I have been the child watching the grown ups do bad things , I have been the teen looking around wondering where i fit , i have been the brash and sassy bitch looking around pushing my thoughts onto others , i have been the one wondering if i did right by keeping an unplanned unwanted pregnancy , i have been the one with a broken heart by a woman and a man , i have been the one to have a wonderful real realtionship that has lasted the test of time and more children . i have been all these things and seen so much good bad horrid and beautiful thing/people/places .

I am so glad that people change , in changing i have experianced so much more than if i stayed that mean loud mouth i was in my teen/early twenties.

I can give a dinosaur perspective..."golden years" my %$#^&%$*&...even in your 40's you still have time to fool around, course ya don't know that cause you're so busy. But at 50 you really realize your own wake up in the morning and one of your parents is in the mirror...But deep inside you still feel 25...and you've almost figured out what you want to be when you grow up...and you know in fifty more years you will probably be dead...wahhhh it's so not fair...but if you can laugh anyway it's okay:he adbanger:

I agree with you Dizzy........from about 16-ish<--->25-ish is definitely the 'I know it all' phase in most people's life. Once you are past it, you can see others still in that phase of life, you can smile to yourself instead of arguing with them 'cause you KNOW it'll catch up to them eventually LOL

25-ish<--->35-ish is really (IMO) the time you realize you don't know it all, (it's rather shocking really, LOL) you've been wrong about so many things, and you start to truly find out about YOURSELF.

I'm not long out of that phase so I can't really size up my current phase just yet. But again, I agree......looking back on each phase, I have changed a bit (or more) each time and that's a good thing.

Not even the same person. I wouldn't even recognize my life. It embarrasses me to look back at how I was.

I was still in high school 10 years ago, so it's safe to say I've changed a lot! In that time I've graduated high school, college, accumulated 5 dogs, traveled quite a bit, got married, bought a house... so many things have happened!

I don't think I was much different 5 years ago. A lot has happened in the last five years though... I had just graduated from college, wasn't married yet (but had been engaged for 2 years)... I'm similiar in a lot of ways, but have just grown up and learned about myself more!

I wouldn't say I'm a whole lot different, honestly. I think the only thing I really see as different is my tolerance for fighting, arguments, nastiness, drama in general. I just don't really see it as worthy of my time and emotion anymore. I don't really know why or what exactly caused that change... just how it is. About the only time I really get hot anymore is in defense of others. Might get a little scrappy to defend myself, but the claws really come out when somebody else is under the gun, especially if it's a friend. It's kind of always been that way though. I'm a sorta fierce friend. So I guess that part of me hasn't changed... I just don't feel the need to jump in just for kicks anymore, or to even take part when it's a waste of time. Ugh, so many more important things in this world.

Oh, I would also like to say I am SO GLAD I didn't have the internet during my 'know it all' phase..........I would not want to look back and/or have proof of that phase! ROFL!!
