30!!! Adult? Feel about 12!!!

Do any of you feel a lot younger than your years? I'm 30 (?!). I feel about 12 a lot of the time. I walk, and feel like running, there is a spring in my step, an energetic need to jump, to dance, to giggle. Conversely, I sometimes get an extreme sense of immobility, when my legs feel like lead and are hard to move. It's either one or the other, with me. The intense energy tends to come first thing in the morning, and often after an interest binge. I feel about 5 ha!. How can I be 30? Adult? What?

  • I'm 58, and often feel as naive as a 12-year-old.  On the other hand, a large part of me is glad that I haven't grown up.  Keeping in touch with my inner child is what feeds my imagination and my writing.

  • Yep, seems very familiar. Not when it is about sort of technical work things or so, but anything social and my age shrinks to a third, which is not exactly useful because it's seen as intentional and unprofessional or bad in some other way. Guess I would find myself immature if I could watch myself, but being in the middle of it I can't stop it and behave like an adult...

    Well, the human embodiment of me is 46 years of age going on 47 currently ~ although I have always been quintessentially ancient in terms of being eternally young.

    Learning to be careful with my creative exuberance and exhilarated enthusiasms has though definitely been one of my major problems in life, as these human embodiments can get a bit too overwhelmed and as such blow one or more proverbial gaskets from time to time. As such, the extreme sense of immobility you write about sometimes getting ~ with legs feeling all lead like and hard to move ~ I know in this sense what you mean, along with my arms and hands feeling floaty numb and larger than they look.

    With me I have the intense vitalisation developing progressively along through the day, and this becomes more so the case with fascinating states of affairs going on.

    Maybe you are more a quintessential being than so much a 30 year old human adult, perhaps?
