7 Things We Love More the Older We Get

Young people, myself included, take a lot for granted. There will come a day when we can't move as well, that we lose our youthful beauty and we'll mourn for it.

But on the other hand, there are some things in life that only get better as we grow older. Allegedly. To get to the truth of the matter, Redditor u/qzlr asked r/AskReddit, “What do you enjoy more the older you get?”

When you're young, it's easy to get caught up in social expectations and in trying to be cool. When you've lived a full life, you know that's not really what's important.

Younger people often prioritize speed and efficiency. But it's important to slow down and spend time in quiet solitude. People find the peace in the quiet more as they get older.

As we get older, we learn that doing what we love to do is one of the most important steps to happiness.
