Some advice from some random 42 year-old dude

"I'm 42. The single most important thing I've learned so far is that who I am is perfectly OK.
So I don't have the same takes on things that a lot of other guys do. I don't grab at relationships with just anyone. Casual sex depresses me rather than excites me. No, I never wanted to go clubbing. I'm way too prone to want to help people. I'm just not aggressive. I'm really not good at remembering my own past.
All that adds up to lots of people thinking I'm some sort of alien. Why was I not out there being savagely ambitious, chasing drunk girls, stabbing colleagues in the back, getting really excited by football, surrounding myself with loud idiots, and all that sort of thing?
Because **** that ****. That's why.
It never was me. It will never be me. And that's fine. Took me quite a while to accept that there was nothing wrong with being me.
As for about life guidance... If you want to know why, follow the money. Trust your intuition above all. Youth truly is beauty. Run away screaming from anyone who tells you what you are allowed to think. On the inside, everyone feels like a fraud. You cannot force help on people, all you can do is support them while they help themselves. She (or he) is out there, somewhere. Your body gets slowed, heavier, wrinklier -- Gods, so quickly -- but you'll never actually feel older than you do today. There is beauty in everything. And, above all: Stay. Away. From. The. assholes. You don't deserve that abuse, and they're not going to change."

Also, with all the crazy stuff going on here lately - this is for you, Amberleh.

good advice. I saw this guy while I was driving, and he was walking down the street, totally embracing the book he was reading and he was wearing a cape. This was a grown adult not giving a **** about what other people thought... that was pure inspiration

I can actually relate to every single one of that dude's statements. It's probably partially why I've been single my entire life but that's kind of beside the point. I still can't quite come terms with who I am so that's probably the only thing I'm still struggling with and, based on what he mentioned in his post, it appears to be quite common. That doesn't exactly make me feel better but at least I know I can relate to something to a certain extent.

I'm 25. I say the same sh!t to people and no one heeds my advice. That just reconfirms my ideal age to be somewhere between 30-40. >_>
