Do you mellow with age?

I find myself mellowing already during different situations.... No sense to cry over spilled milk. Right?

Yes, but at the same time I find myself tolerating less bull. I just do not have the time for it. Back to the mellowing part I believe comes from my faith. God has seen me through situations and will continue to. You are right about "spilled milk". It is over and done with. The situation may be bad, but we make it worse with our reactions.

Hmmmmm. I have shifted. In some ways yes, in other ways, my "fire" looks different and more mature, but is still very much there.

Yup. As you age, you have been through some real shit in your life so you learn some things just aren't worth the time and effort it takes to get upset.

I've been pretty miserable to be around lately.  Some days are better than others though.

 I think I definately have. I used to have a very short fuse in most situations, and I tolerate alot more than I used to.

It has for me. But it also was caused by having less and less responsibilities, and finding real happiness in my day to day life.

Actually, I've become more outspoken and less willing to coddle or keep my mouth shut to keep the peace.
