An Old Soul is a person who feels much older than their age reflects. This feeling is often accompanied by the gift of intuition, empathy, and profound existential insight.
Old Souls are also often social outsiders who feel as though they don’t “belong” in this world, or this period of time. As a result, most Old Souls long for a sense of true meaning, purpose and inner fulfillment that money, power and success can’t achieve. This longing is often described as the thirst to “return back home.”
Common signs of an old soul temperament include:
- A preference for solitude
- Sensitivity and empathy
- Profound understanding of the human nature
- Ability to deeply introspect
- Psychological tiredness
- Disinterest in worldly achievement or status
- Inclination towards spirituality
- A mystical approach to life
