for years I have been fascinated with past lives and whether our souls die when we die.
A thought struck me when I was watching channel 4s secret life of a 4 year old.
The really timid children have young / new souls and the confident or more knowledgable children have souls that are older and have lived many lives?
Even when my son was 2 years old he acted like a 50 year old. He's always seemed older than his years.
Some children seem really shy and unsure of the world. Maybe it's because their soul hasn't been here before. Maybe children born with older souls are more confident because they know they can just enjoy the childhood stage. So they just run and really enjoy themselves.
