Age is Relative

An older friend of mine asked me how old I am, I’m 22, but I’m turning 23 this year, I’m getting old,” I said. You’re not getting old! You’re still young.”

What is old? What is young?

I’m a few years older than many of my peers in university, and sometimes when I’m always the older one, I can’t help but feel old myself.

I remember when I was one of the youngest ones on the teams I joined, then I felt young.

To a child, I’m old, but to my grandpa, I’m young.

To me, my grandpa is old, but to the 5,000 year old tree, Prometheus, he’s young.

Age is all relevant.
