I feel jealous of old people.

Old people endured life for so much and soon they're gonna have the reward of eternal rest.
I'm 21 and I can't stand living anymore. So when I see old people, I just feel jealous. I wish I was in their place. I can't stand these 21 years of live, but they could stand almost a century being alive.
Old people, you are heroes. For enduring this ridiculous life so much without doing something to your lives. Thanks for being an example.

I don't envy old people. Most of them look unhappy.

The point is they're gonna have their eternal rest soon without having to go through the pain of killing themselves. I didn't say anything about happiness. For me happiness is an illusion, nobody is ever happy, all a living being can be is satisfied and that's it.

I understand depression, I've suffered it all my life, I know what it does to a person but oh boy, you really don't know what you're saying.

I have several elderly relatives and the relentless decay they have to endure is pretty sobering.

I am middle-aged. I understand that now. I am the generation in between old and young.

It is kinda cool. I am still young enough to do sports and old enough to be confident. :)

I don't like how my parents used to change my nappy and look after me and stuff. I think they must be narcissists trying to make me co dependant.

And I guess many old people are often jealous of young people. "Oh, to be young again."
