Passing my own birthday doesn't bother me in the slightest.

However, when I realize how old my younger family members are, that makes me feel really old.

For example: It's perfectly OK that I'm 52.

However, the fact that my little sister is nearly 49 and my baby cousin is 43 is just plain wrong. What's worse, their kids (and mine) are all teenagers now. This is completely unacceptable. Hell, all but one of them are taller than me! Whose idea was that?

I just don't look out of the corner of my eye at my eldest son who is 42 about a third of the way through next year.

First time i realised my youth was probably over, was when people were graduating university who were born after i started school.
Does this mean i should now be mature and responsible? Hah! Not likely!

I have known that feeling, too!
Last couple years in the Navy, the youngsters I was training quite literally WERE young enough to be my kids. (And no, I don't have any kids that I know of...........)

And now it's the same at my current position with the USDA. Some of our recent new-hires are young enough to be my grand-kids.

Feeling old #3: my youngest sister's oldest daughter turned 29 in September, last week she got married.

I'm sure it was hard on you. In 1986, my mother was diagnosed with cancer in November and was dead by the end of March. I still deeply regret not having more time and resources to have cared for her better.

She was very trying at times, more so after She retired and started drinking full time, when She was sober She was great, heck She did manage to teach Me how to cook from scratch if I needed to and She even tried to teach Me at one point on how to dance, like in a ballroom, She needed Dad, badly, but She chased Him away and It was Her fault that He took His life later on(the theory is that a sexually transmitted virus causes prostate cancer and a bullet finished Him off) and yet until Her dying day She proclaimed that She loved Him, She was just in denial that She couldn't have children and to Her that meant no more sex with Dad and that led to Her filing for Divorce and eventually His death. Yes I forgave Her, She's been gone since 1998(76, heart failure due to mouth cancer, She smoked a lot) and Dad's been gone since 1993(75), His Dad(82, 1969, loneliness, otherwise old age) and his Grandpa(87, 1954~, old age) lived into their 80's with no cancer of any type...
