15 Signs That Confirm You’re An Old SoulBeing an old soul doesn’t necessarily mean you’re uncool and way out of synch with the reality of the modern world. In fact, being an old soul is something beautiful and is a definite rarity these days. If you’re not afraid of standing out from the crowd and embracing life’s little pleasures, then you could indeed be an old soul. Are you an old soul?
Have you ever felt like your priorities don't match up with those of your friends and even other people of your age? Do you ever feel the need to explain yourself to friends and family who just don't understand your old-fashioned ways? Do you look back fondly on simpler times and wish you could go back there? If you can relate to these scenarios, you are probably what we call an ‘old soul’.
Signs you are an old soul…
As an ‘old soul’ you are no doubt more mature, logical and down to earth than your peers. Whilst it may be frustrating to out of synch with people of your generation, you're definitely not alone, there are plenty of other old souls out there!

In your fantasy world, every weekend you’d thrown on your most beautiful and eccentric gown, grab your partner and head out to dance the night away. Oh, if only!

There’s something about winter that you just love. Perhaps it’s the crisp and cool air, or the beautifully pure snowflakes that sometimes fall; you can’t get enough of this season.

For you, silence really is golden! You love sitting in silence and emptying your head of all negative thoughts and escaping to your happy place.
