I’ve been noticing the effects of getting older lately. I’m not as patient as I used to be, especially at work. I have become more of a complainer, about everything, and I hate it. I’ve also noticed changes physically too. I used to love walking to work. But now, it makes my legs tired. I would much rather drive. Maybe it’s because I’ve been spoiled over the last year or two by getting drives all the time from my boyfriend. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I don’t exercise any more like I know I should be. My legs don’t like walking to work and then standing for the next 8-9 hours.
But I also feel like it could just be a mood I’ve been in, for like the last three years lol. Ever since I moved to Alberta, I haven’t really found people that I would really call my friends. I have a hard time making friends, either because I’m too busy, or because I’m too picky. Maybe I’m just not trying hard enough. I only really have one true friend and I haven’t even seen her in over a year because she lives so far away.
I miss my Halifax life. I miss the people I used to hang out with (even if they act like I no longer exist). Basically I miss my past. I know you’re not supposed to live in the past, but right now I feel like I’m wasting away my life. I really hope my future gets more exciting than my current life is.
Oh my gosh I am feeling the same. Given that I also have kids, but lately i’ve been tired and I become tired so much as if I did a lot! 🙂 I feel really getting old it’s weird sometimes I get so emotional about it….
I know the feeling about feeling like your getting old. I feel the same. I feel like life is passing me by and I am regretting so many of the mistakes I made in the past that are starting to come back to haunt me over the last 5 years or so. Like getting in dept and not going to college or university. I am also feeling the crunch when it comes to my biological clock ticking. I feel like I am running out of time for so many of the things I wanted out of life.
I am sorry to hear that you miss it here and miss the life you had here. Halifax is a great city. I love it and would miss it so much if I even moved again. It may not have been where I was born but it’s where I belong. I am so sad to hear that you really miss it. It’s true you should be careful about living in the past and that it gets you nothing but heart ache but sometimes your heart just knows where home is and wants to be there 🙁
I completely know what you mean. I feel like I have been this way at work as well. I’ve been getting irritated easily and it’s just….not always a good day at work. It’s so rare of that nowadays. I feel like I’m wasting my youth with a 9-5 job and sometimes laaaaaaaaate hours at work. I feel like I’m crippling :/
I felt like that for a bit after I finished grad school. I was kind of like…ok…here’s adult time! I wasn’t ready. Are there any types of classes (cooking, yoga, something similar?) that you might take in Alberta where you could do something for YOU and meet new people at the same time?
🙁 It is hard to make new friends especially when you get older. And also, if you’ve moved to somewhere new. I don’t know if Canada has MeetUp, but you should look into something like that. Funny thing is that I just met someone who lives in the Alberta area…
