23 Things Only People With An Old Soul AKA “Buddhi Rooh” Will Understand

By Astarte | 9 Mar, 2017

An old soul isn’t someone who relishes in quietness. Nor is an old soul someone who finds delight in sitting back, watching life pass them by. An old soul isn’t someone who hates adventure or excitement. Rather, an old soul is one who feels trapped in a young body.

An old soul wants to truly live every moment they experience. You’ll feel patience and tranquility ooze out of them. A sense of stillness and calmness befalls you around the presence of an old soul. Being an old soul is a rarity, and here are 23 things you’ll only understand if you’re one too.


1. You’re always curious because you’re an old soul that seeks to understand the world

You love asking questions and live in continual wonderment.

2. You don’t care about worldly things and are content with whatever little you have.

You don’t care for gifts. You don’t really want too many clothes, nor do you want more than the basics. An old soul loves the little things in life and desires nothing but time and attention from the one they love.
