Alright, this is probably going to sound kinda stupid, but I very stronly feel like I was born in the wrong time period. Like I should have been born in a time like the late 1800's or early 1900's. I just don't feel like I belong in 2006. My friends all say that it's stupid to want to be born back then, because all women could do was cook and clean and all that junk, but I really don't mind living a simple life like that. Is it possible that people can be born in the wrong time period? Anybody else feel like this?

It wasn't me! My Body Thetans made me do it!

Ya, I think I know what you mean, sometimes I feel like I should have been born in Japan during the late 1800's, other times I feel like I should have been born on a space colony 100 or so years in the future.  I guess it's just wanting what we can't have.  It's totally understandable though, especially if you don't like the place/time period you live in now all that much (aka: America+Now=PLEASE take me away hehe)

The past is always portrayed as being better than it was.
It was a hellscape and we are lucky we do not live like that now.

I feel like I belong back in the early Mediaeval period.

It's common to feel like that.  Some will say it's because we romance the past because of how it's portrayed... some will also say it's because our soul had lived back then, and is having a hard time leaving the desire to stay in that time period.

Personaly...  I feel a jumble.  Sometimes I feel like I should have lived in the 60's... sometimes the 1700's... even sometimes back as far as pre christian ireland.

Oy...

Just my luck, to be born in pretty much the only period in time where I can't have my own slave. disgust.gif

But it'd be cool to be a Greek, or even Roman.

I like being clean and not smelling so the 1800's or before would not really work for me(also dying from lack of good medicine would suck too). I would have loved to be in ancient Egypt but only as royalty. Truthfully I wish I had been born around 2100.Right now we are starting to see amazing advances in technology(really for awhile now). Imagine 100 years from now and I would still smell good.

Sometimes we need a kick in the butt to wake us up. Well, I'm up now!Boo ya.

Mmm maybe, but I'm thinking about without getting 30 years imprisonment for people trafficking and death due to neglegence.

I thought that it was only me who felt that lol I was unsure about replying to this topic until I read that, thank you  original.gif

With me it tends to come in phases, I'll go for quite a few years feeling an affinity to a particular era.

Yeah I know we romance it a lot, I watch a lot of old movies. And I know we have a lot more medicine now than we did back then, but I just don't like the way the world is now, just turn on any news channel and look what you see: Terrorists blowing up people, drug addicts running amock, our country being taken over by like 5 different countries. The 1800's had it's share of problems, but it wasn't a madhouse like it is today. If I could be born anytime, anywhere I wanted, it would have to be Victorian era England, like I said, whenever I read books or watch movies that happened in that time period, or when I studied it in history class, I just get this strong feeling like I belong there, not here. Life was just a lot simpler back then, and that's what I really want.

PS: I would still shower! wink2.gif
