4. Teenagers Treated You Different

5.Your Top Hit Became A Throwback

Another submitter found it unsettling hearing their beloved music termed a throwback on the radio. Though it hurts to hear a music you love branded old, you understand you're from a different generation.

6. Shift In Conversation

Young people talk of wild nights out, flashy automobiles, and lifelong experiences. One commenter says the subject immediately switched to 401ks, mortgages, and retirement planning. It hit them then.

7. Next-Gen Babysitting

When the kids you babysat have infants, it's surreal. They were kids who needed bedtime tales; now they're parents. Life cycle moments like these make you think, "Wow, time really does fly!"

8. Lost in Translation

When were you the cool one that knew slang? It sounds like younger folks speak a different language. You're not alone in wondering what "on fleek" or "lit" means. It's a subtle indicator of changing times.

9. Healing Became Hard

A person describes how their 10-year-old niece's fractured arm healed in two weeks. However, they suffered from a years-old fracture. The body's natural regeneration mechanism slows with age, making recovery difficult.
