For the same reason, that so many old souls suffer from anxiety.. The current world in which we inhabit, is hardly at all old soul friendly, if anything, one would pertain to the idea that the powers that be, already knew of the forthcoming arrival of these sensitive type of beings, and made it so that not only would we be unable to thrive in such a world, but if we tried, we would soon be met with the gruesome realisation, that there is no place for us here. That there is no place on this earth delicate enough to engulf us, the ways that we long to be engulfed.
From a young age, old souls are likely to be the children playing alone in the play ground, the children who cling desperately to their mother’s clothes when being dropped at the school gates.
Even on an unconscious level, that early on, the old soul is aware that they are not entirely safe here, on this planet. This is where the anxiety comes in, and this is why it is so very important for empaths, and these sensitive light working souls to do daily affirmations, and ground techniques, reclaiming the safety that they feel is lost.
The old soul has so much occurring internally, that they often lack appropriate expression. They may be over expressive, (aggressive), if they possess an imbalance of too much masculine energy, or under expressive, (submissive/passive), if they possess an imbalance of too much feminine energy. This makes it difficult for them sometimes to cultivate friendships, and close inter-personal relationships, because they often fail to voice their opinions, and feelings, consequently failing to get their needs met.
These souls are also more likely than others to spot the insincerity, and inauthenticity in others. This makes it almost impossible to maintain steady friendships, and close bonds. The old soul has known much emotional disturbance, and likely betrayal on their paths. Whilst most people will probably stick around, and give somebody who’s motives are unclear a chance, the old soul will find the friction in vibration absolutely unbearable, and will likely run for the hills! They value their energetic sanity more than anything, and above anyone, and rightly so! If not careful, they can fall victim to energy vampirism, over stimulation, and even emotional imprinting from others.
Old souls typically are so different from their peer, social group and family because they have existed much longer than them all. This is also the reason they seem to have acquired so much knowledge, even at a particularly young age, none of this knowledge is exactly, ‘new’ to them, they have had so many life times to learn it and master it, so in a sense, they are only remembering it, and not learning it for the first time.
Their preference of solitude is related to their need to process all of the information that is signalled to them from other planes, and also from remembering specific information from their previous incarnations. They tend to have a sensitivity parallel to none, because they have existed for so long, they have seen all of the evils of man kind, from wars, to loss, to ill treatment, and truly appreciate that the foundation and the core of existence is love, acceptance and compassion. It is also likely that they have been separated from source for so long that their craving for this intense loving energy propels them to try to recreate this with their actions on earth. Their solitude is also born of being unable to do so, given the dense, and egotistically operating nature of our general society today.
In the case of empath old souls and twin flames incarnating in this time period, I strongly believe that this is their last life time, and that is why so many are being reunited with their twins, they have gathered much knowledge, but need this final push, (reconnection with source energy) to utilise all of the skills and knowledge learnt to teach others, before finally ascending. From there-forth they will become masters, guides, who no longer incarnate, (unless they choose to), but rather assist other struggling empaths, and attempt to guide other twin flames remaining on earth to find one another, or learn of their divinity. Old souls are old in their eyes, their eyes hold great wisdom, and great pain, as they have known so much loss, (losing friends, family etc over several life times, over and over again). This is also the trait that gifts them with the ability to give accurate love, advice and guidance to all whom seek their counsel.
