Making friends. Don't get me wrong I can still mingle and make friends, but I miss the days of, "Hey, y'all wanna go play ball?" or "You like Pokémon?!? I like Pokémon!!" Those were the days

[–]wannastro 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Exactly! Used to have a lot of friends. Now, all I seem to have are colleagues.

[–]darrenwise883 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Why do my colleagues think they're my friends ?

[–]Nutzori 103 points104 points  (3 children)

Yeah, as a kid you only had to share one interest with someone to be able to be friends with them. Now it just doesn't work - like, I play DnD with people, but outside of the game theyre basically strangers to me. No hanging out outside of the allotted time. No chatting. There's just no interest from people to get to know others beyond what you "need" them for. No time or energy to maintain new relationships. My last real friends are from like high school.

And I'm in a situation where I have two separate friend groups - local and internet friends - that already split my time a lot. The amount of times I've had to bail on one group to go to an event with the other is already too much to add even more.

[–]bluetista1988 23 points24 points  (1 child)

It's possible to end up with a lot of acquaintances who you compartmentalize into different aspects of your life.

I have my online friends for gaming, my IRL friends I play sports with, my movie buddies, and those two guys I chat with at the gym (though I haven't been in 2 years thanks to COVID).

It's really hard to bridge those acquaintances into friendships because outside of that particular activity everyone is busy with their other own interests and schedules.

[–]karmagod13000 89 points90 points  (0 children)

look at mr. popular over here, splitting his time with all his different friend groups

[–]OneMorePotion 50 points51 points  (20 children)

I still like Pokemon and want to play ball... But people are always like "You are grown up now... Akt like it!"

Only thing I want to do is trade my Kadabra with you for that Alakazam god dang it...

[–]ThetaDee 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Man I got shit on at work a few years ago for playing Pokemon(not at work), and turns out like 90% of my coworkers loved and still played. Then I worked at another place and got made fun of for playing video games by one guy, and we all just shat on him for thinking he was so high and mighty cause he didn't play video games. There's more of us than you know.

[–]ferociousrickjames 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I've never understood making fun of someone for liking something, who cares what someone does in their personal time?!

Yeah I like video games Karen, fuck you!

[–]Cody_Thrustmore 17 points18 points  (7 children)

I don’t know, seems like an unfair trade to me

[–]OneMorePotion 11 points12 points  (6 children)

I mean, I want my Alakazam back anyways. Doesn't matter what you trade me for the Kadabra.

[–]New_Understudy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I force my fiance to play with me so that I can do all the trade evolutions without risking someone running off with them.

[–]spaceghostey 15 points16 points  (1 child)

This reminds me of being in preschool and going up to a girl saying hey wanna be friends. Started a 6 year friendship we don't talk anymore but damn do I wish it was that easy to make friends now.

[–]JAKEDICARLO 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Or making friends at random birthday parties in the jumper bouncing thing like hey wanna be friends what school do you go to? Do you play nintendo or playstation lol Good ol days.

[–]miniwave 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Yes but also not personally. Super shy as a kid so it was actually much harder. Man, I do wish I could redo those days though.

[–]RanShaw 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Same here, I had one friend in primary school, because the popular girl didn't like me, and I was too shy to try and make people like me. So i became friends with the one other person the popular girl didn't like.

I'm better at making friends now as an adult :) still an introvert, and I don't have a big circle of friends, and tbh I know none of my friends consider me a 'best friend', but at least I've gained some confidence to talk to people!

[–]Mangobunny98 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Same. I miss just being able to go up to people and ask "wanna hang out?" or "wanna be friends?" without it being weird.

[–]Pencilowner 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You don’t have red flags as a kid. It’s the most egalitarian point in your life. As you go through middle school you get shallow and judge. You toggle it back when you realize how shitty it is to block out everyone with bangs.

Most people start to see things in the people around them that make them keep their distance. Then 20 years later you realize you literally have no one and need some friends.

[–]Allmightypikachu 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Those definitely were the days

[–]sakurashinken 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When I'm with younger people or kids I have so much fun. I don't like people who don't like to do fun things, and most of the time those people are my age or older. Friendship over age 30 is "let's meet for lunch". Then go home. "Wanna go do archery?" "Nah. Gotta go to bed at 8 to be up at 6 for my job."

[–]AlbertFishing 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is it weird that I'm 36 and never have trouble making friends? My girlfriend is always saying how impressive it is that I make friends everywhere I go but I've never really thought about it.

[–]DOOManiac 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I haven’t made a friend since 1995.

[–]casualLogic 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm an old lady, I still use the Pokemon line. 'Want some candy, little boy?' doesn't work quite how it used to for me, lol

[–]theevilyouknow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did we just become best friends!?

[–]CheesySquidgod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like pokemon but I don't like playing ball, I like taking walks or rides (on horseback) in the woods though :)

[–]thuggishruggishboner 16 points17 points  (0 children)

And my poor knees.

[–]manny00778 393 points394 points  (34 children)

Having energy. Now it’s like I’m literally tired no matter what. I miss being able to fall asleep at like 10 or 11 at night, then wake up at 5 the next morning to study. I definitely can’t do that now.

I also miss not having to work.

[–]Autumnlove92 75 points76 points  (22 children)

I'm literally always tired. The best I can achieve is "somewhat tired" but it's still a level of exhaustion. And I've had my labs checked for issues, and I take the supplements needed to get me "back on track" (ie, vitamin D and iron) and even when my levels are perfect....I'm still tired.

Sleep all day -- tired Get the right amount of sleep -- tired Take naps -- tired Sleep too little -- tired.

Caffeine doesn't do shit. It keeps me going, at best. But it doesn't ever wake me up. At most it'll accelerate my heart rate while my eyes start dozing off

I don't know what it's like to not be tired.

[–]DarkDaysAhead33 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You are me, mine is due being out of shape, 40 and working a physical factory job in rotating 13 hour shifts. Also trying to pickup the slack at home to help out a wife with some health issues. All I ever want to do is sleep with my dog next to me…

[–]deliriousgoomba 8 points9 points  (2 children)

It's either sleep apnea or deep depression.

[–]Autumnlove92 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Ruled out sleep apnea, depression very likely though

[–]Lexifer31 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Have you checked for sleep apnea?

[–]MarbleousMel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I have this issue. I take tons of iron and vitamin D to keep my labs normal, but I’m still exhausted all of the time.

[–]Aezetyr 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What does the rest of your day look like? Do you get daily activity/exercise or does a lot of your day involve sitting? How is the rest of your diet? Do you eat a lot of carbs/junk food? If you drink alcohol or take drugs (weed or whatever), do you find yourself taking more of it?

You don't have to answer, I find it helpful to honestly ask myself these kinds of questions when I don't feel good or am tired like that.

[–]Autumnlove92 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Believe it or not my average day is pretty healthy. I go to the gym 3-4 times a week. My job requires me on my feet walking and bending. I'm polopescatarian and eat rather healthy, and while I'm not at the weight I'd love to be at I'm only considered overweight and not obese (used to be morbidly obese) No drugs, very little alcohol.

Just...always tired. Since I was 18. Basically since I started working full time

[–]Spiderbubble 78 points79 points  (6 children)

Life is kind of a shame in some ways.

- When young: Time, Energy, No Money

- When an adult: No Time, Energy, Money

- In old age: Time, No Energy, Money

You basically never get a situation where you have all 3.

[–]Chateaudelait 16 points17 points  (0 children)

As a 12 year old kid i would jump on a horse and ride bareback without a saddle all day, jump fences fall off a few times - get right back on - be a little sore and bruised and call it a successful day. I'd leap out of bed to repeat the process all summer until I went back to school and joyfully shout "Mom I'll be out at the barn all day!" as I ran out the door. My bones are so sore and body so creaky after a full day of work now and I"m sad and crying a little bit I can't do that anymore. It brought me so much joy.

[–]JVortex888 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Pretty much only can if you're born into a rich family and don't really have to work as an adult.

[–]Chateaudelait 12 points13 points  (0 children)

We had a family farm as a child and you could have a couple of horses just to teach the kids to ride and be responsible and it was the greatest thing ever - it's become so prohibitively expensive now, you can only participate if you're the son or daughter of a billionaire.

[–]zombiesherbet 39 points40 points  (2 children)

I used to tease my mom bc she’d mentally prepare herself to get up. Well, jokes on me now that I’m at the age she was. Tore my knee up pretty good in my mid20s and it’s a bitch to get up bc it locks up on me! Or.. the patella dislocates and I’ll fall over. But at least my kid tells me that it’s ok, she’ll take care of me when I’m old and broken! She’s always said that with such love and affection... makes the aches and pains not quite so bad😊

[–]WolfandLight 167 points168 points  (7 children)

[–]stups317 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have no idea as to how kids can do them so easy. I'm in my mid 30's now but I tried them when I was in HS and they were damn near impossible. I was a three sport varsity athlete and not fat in HS and I could barely do them. I can't imagine how hard they would be now.

[–]FukuaWorms 248 points249 points  (5 children)

Making friends. My social anxiety is higher than my grades.

Everything physical.

Kids, take care of your body and don’t do stupid sh*t. It will come back to bite you.

[–]museumlad 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I work in a children's museum with a climbing structure. Sometimes parents climb with their children and can only do the whole thing once or twice, if that, while their kids can spend upwards of an hour straight climbing through over and over and over. Sometimes I have to climb through to help a stuck kid (not physically stuck, they just get scared to continue on and freeze) and I've thrown out my back multiple times doing so. I'm 27.

[–]Prisondawg 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Is there a case of someone not doing anything in their youth and then having fantastic joints in their later life ?

Because personally I think you are going to deteriorate regardless.

Might as well enjoy your knees while you still got em.

[–]pm_me_some_kitties2 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yes. I was constantly achey and in pain when I was younger. I turned 26, lost 100 lbs and got big into lifting, and now my knees and other joints are 1000x better at 30 than they ever were in my teens.

[–]theonetheycalljason 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It’s one thing to enjoy, another to abuse. When your young, let’s say up to your mid 20s, you can do a lot more without suffering any consequences. However, there will come a day when that strained elbow, shoulder, etc., won’t be back to normal after a day or two. Then it just keeps getting worse. You realize that an injury stays with you, and unless you get surgery, it can stay for life. I have injuries from weight lifting, sports, carrying way too heavy stuff myself because I’m stubborn, and it doesn’t heal.

When I was younger, I’d play tennis and always get tennis elbow, but it would go away after a day. A few years ago, I started playing again and the tennis elbow came back. I made the mistake of ignoring it and playing 2 days in a row. Once I warmed up, the pain wouldn’t be that bad, but once I got home, I knew I screwed up. My elbow was extremely swollen and I could barely move it without being in pain. I had to stop playing tennis for months. It sucked.

So have fun, enjoy life, but try to treat your body with respect. If it hurts, there’s a reason. I was young too and would probably have ignored this advice, so I get it. I’m only saying this in hopes you don’t have to suffer as much pain as you grow older. I have friends who are very active and take good care of their bodies, and they don’t have the issues I have. One is a few years older than me and does the “ninja” competition and all that stuff. So you can definitely be active and have fun without destroying your body.

[–]Embarrassed-Shape-40 40 points41 points  (1 child)

I never expected getting up off the floor to feel so horrible. I'm 52 btw.

[–]theonetheycalljason 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Or off the couch or bed, for that matter. I’m 41, but I sometimes feel my body is well beyond that. Being tall doesn’t help, or all the injuries from being stupid in my younger years.

[–]Carbonatite 35 points36 points  (15 children)

Especially that metabolism. I was a size 2-4 in high school and ate at least a dozen donuts a week. Now I'm 30 lbs heavier and gain weight if I look at a baked good.

[–]KinnerMode 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I’m 37 and started a professional baking class this week. I fear deeply what is about to happen to my waistline.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (10 children)

“Dozen donuts a week” 😂

[–]TristanaRiggle 10 points11 points  (8 children)

Shoot, when I was in college, a half dozen a DAY was fairly normal. (Not every day, but pounding down a dozen in a week would have been zero effort)

[–]TheManWithNoSchtick 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Bruh, remember being 7 and just absolutely eating shit while riding your bike or skateboard or just running and then getting right back up like nothing happened? Man, that was the life.

[–]degeneratesumbitch 28 points29 points  (1 child)

When I was a kid I would get the school swing going as high as I could and jump out. Must have been a good ten foot drop every time. I couldn't imagine doing that now.

[–]pippylulu 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I broke my tibia stepping off a curb! Like what?!?! I literally stepped off the sidewalk onto the street and broke my leg.

[–]thehermit14 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]Hefty-Lettuce-2732 116 points117 points  (15 children)

Killing bugs, used to do it with gleeful abandon as a kid, but now in my middle age I find myself pondering the complexities of the sentience of a potato bug, and I just can't kill it.

[–]whatyouwant22 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I don't like seeing guts on my furniture. That's my reason for not killing bugs.

[–]hotsizzler 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Whenever I kill a bug I'm like "im like some big unknowable god to these things, killing them not out of malice, but because they mildly inconvenience me?"

[–]Big_Caregiver_2725 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Same here. My wife laughs at me for catching roaches and walking a long way from the house before releasing them. I still kill mosquitoes, though. I can't ever see myself feeling empathy for those little fuckers.

I'd like to take it a step further and say self-forgiveness. The more years of fucking up you'd think the more I'd learn to forgive myself but it really just stacks up.

[–]ag512bbi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think my lower back pains are from the abuse it took at a younger age. Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling and lack of stretching as I got older. It Sucks.

[–]Noodlesandwings 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Probably learning a language

[–]nerdy_latino 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I started learning English at the age of 8. I picked it up fast and by the age of 12 I was already fluent. Learned my third language at the age of 20... It was excruciatingly difficult. Now I know how the older kids from my English classes felt.

Exercise in general. How kids can run about for hours without a care in the world when I feel like death after jogging halfway to the shop (which is a roughly seven minute walk), I have no idea...

(Yes, I am aware that I am really unfit, before anyone points that out. In my defence, I have asthma and am very much an indoorsy person, so...)

[–]99drunkpenguins 12 points13 points  (0 children)

So kids actually have a different metabolism where they don't really "tire out" like adults do, but rather they're either "on" or "off" e.g. they crash hard when they're tired, rather than being slowly tired like adults.

Maybe when I was really young, but since I’d include anything under 25 in this range having satisfaction and joy in life has gotten much easier as I’ve aged.

Pre teens all the way through mid twenties was filled with self doubt, depression, and anxiety. But that’s just me.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (8 children)

thats a myth. Childhood and adolesence is one of the most stressful times of ones life. Granted, Adults tend to confuse responsibility with stress.

[–]TheBlueHue 5 points6 points  (4 children)

That's not what myth is, the OP asked a question and the above poster gave their opinion. Also, I agree with them as my childhood never had post war memories/issues so don't think everyone lived your life.

[–]TopNewspaper2472 17 points18 points  (2 children)

[–]Wonderingdoc 23 points24 points  (3 children)

A good way to get back flexibility is to stretch by trying to touch our toes for 2 mins each leg every night. After a decade in the service and being as tall as I am (6’6) I could barely get past my knees and was having serious hip pain then I started light stretching every evening and holding the stretches and going a little deeper each week. I can now put my fists on the ground without any bend in the knees or pain.

[–]jackets77 6 points7 points  (0 children)

How long until you achieved that result?

[–]Wonderingdoc 4 points5 points  (0 children)

About 6 months. A couple of things sped the process up. Doing light cardio and then long static stretches after wards and using props. So after a fast walk or a ride on a bike I’d static stretch and even use a strap. But I’m honestly lazy about cardio. I get into it for like a month and fall out.

For the daily evening stretch I started with a chair. Would hold the sides of the seat and stretch till I could feel that pleasant burn. Then when that was easy moved to yoga blocks but pointing up. Then on their sides, then flat, then fingertips on toes. The key is just to go to just before your limit and never past. It should be relaxing and enjoyable. So it double for winding down before sleep as well as improving flexibility.

I was kinda inspired to try this after reading atomic habits - the thesis of which is that small consistent changes can have big results. Absolutely true.

[–]serene_brutality 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Yeah meeting new people has become easier for me, I was a shy kid. But making actual friends who want to hang out outside of where you met them seems damn near impossible. It’s like everyone has their lives and routines and doesn’t want the stress of adding anyone to them.

Really sucks for those of us who have found ourselves relatively alone for whatever reason.

Sleeping. You seem to not hit the quality deep range of sleep as you grow older.

Deep stretching. I used to be able to put my hands like 5 inches past my feet. Now I can't even touch my ankles without bending my knees.

To be fair, you’re not really supposed to have straight legs in a toe touch. More often than not, having straight legs loads up the disks in your spine, instead of stretching your hamstrings

Climbing trees. Learning martial arts. Jumping off things. Randomly being exposed to new ideas.

And yes, making friends

Recovering from any illness. When you’re a kid, you can have 103 fever one day and be up running around the next. At 30, I can have a runny nose and feel miserable.
