Do you think it's wonderfu to be old?
I wish I was old but I am only 17 I don't like myself I think it's wonderful to be old because when you are old you are closer to dying and you are closer to stop hating yourself

It sucks I have a long time to die and have to deal with myself for a long time

I’m sure that if you tried you could think of at least one thing you like about yourself.
I am 60 and while there are definately benefits to being this age:
Your moods and behavior are not longer influenced by hormones
You understand (hopefully) how your life and the world works
You have established, dependable routines
You have skills to support yourself
You have established and stable relationships
You feel like you know and understand yourself
Obviously everyone is on a continuum somewhere but hopefully, with luck and work this is where you are.
What sucks is that your joints ache, your vision requires glasses to see really well and your hearing is probably not what it used to be.
Your muscles are not as strong, you gain weight easily and it’s harder to lose.
Your skin is not longer so elastic and it...is sagging or starting to sag
Your feet are bigger, your boobs are smaller
You get tired more easily
You can’t party all night and go to work the next day anymore
Your sex drive is diminished (this can be a good thing)
There are lots of great reasons to take your time between there and here.
I suggest you find some.

No... being old means your choices become fewer and fewer. You also start feeling concerned about health and most of your friends die if you live a longtime

The price of enlightenment, age? I'd rather be young and dumb.

Yea I feel that way sometime but then I remember, before you get to dying (of old age) phase, you lose yourself and depend on the care of others, someone else will have to wipe your a$$. And I'd rather not, so I'll just live in the moment bc no one promised that you'd die of old age. There are plenty things out there that could kill a 17y/o so count your blessings

Actually, you could die tomorrow. You can be old and die, but you don't have to be old to die.
