The older we get, the more life begins to feel as if it is tightening up around us. You feel the suffocation of responsibilities. We become weighed down by running thoughts of what was, what could’ve been, and what will be, and of course, the great march of time. We often begin to long for the old days, the simpler days. When the world was slower.
Our minds are tricking us when we look behind and think the world was more straightforward when the reality is we were simpler. Time makes us a more complicated version of ourselves.
Rediscovering a less burdened version is a peace that we don’t seek out often enough.
