Play me a few notes, sonny
For me, getting older has been a bit of a mixed bag. In some ways, life gets easier as I figure things out and learn to prioritize what truly matters. If you're struggling with this, consider checking out Mark Manson's book on the matter.
On the other hand, I suppose it's only natural to long for the good old days, a time when the world made sense and we were flexible enough to adapt.
