I Act Older Than My Age

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,735 People

    I'm pretty sure people find me strange

    because of the way I talk. I like to use "big" words and others can't seem to either comprehend what I'm saying or lack the basic vocabulary to hold an intelligent conversation. I suppose it's a piece of me that you can define as quirky but it really puts up walls when it comes...

    The Price Of Being Responsible...

    At 21 I moved out from my parents house. I never did anything irresponsible before that because it was not allowed. I never really did anything irresponsible after that because I had no one to save my *** if I messed something up. At 21 I was working multiple jobs, paying my...

    I'm 16, but I act much older

    than most people my age. People my age think it's cool to start fights for the dumbest reasons or literally no reason or just for fun, steal from others, vandalize, do drugs like smoking cigarettes or marijuana, or drink, or skip school, etc. Then the morons who are horny over...

    I'm more mature than most people I know.

    Which is a good thing at times but can be kinda frustrating when I'm trying to have fun.

    I've had to grow up fast.

    I basically went from 12-20. My dad is an alcoholic and took all of his anger out from my mother on me. I ended up becoming suicidal. Sometimes I would lay in bed at night and think about who would miss me. Or the least painful way to go about it. I was in and out of placement...

    I don't act it necessarily,

    it's just the way I've been brought up. Looking at different perceptions of life, have different understandings. I think it just depends on how you've been brought up.

    Everyone tells me I am too mature

    and act way beyond my age. I don't see it but they do, I can't stand childish people so I guess this is where I come of to mature. I don't really tolerate bs and I find most people in my age group can be full of it. So I choose to keep to myself.
