I Act So Much Younger Than I Am

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 446 People

    I am 16 years old already.

    I am a childish or a childlike, whatever! But I always act like I'm still their baby and their one and only princess. They said, I'm too old for acting that way but that's the way I like it.

    I'm definitly not old, but I guess people are starting to consider me as an adult.. young adult. I still act like a six year old sometimes. I'd rather blow bubbles and run around outside barefoot in a sundress. Hitting eighteen felt like I couldnt act like a kid anymore...

    I've been told that I need to grow up.

    Well, I don't want to! Why should I? I'm going to remain a kid forever. Just call me Peter Pan!

    Just The Same Person In An Older Body

    I remember reading someone saying that they didn't expect that growing old would work the way it works. They likened it to just being the same kid in just an older body. Each year that passes, you're kind of the same person, but you look in the mirror and you look older. That...

    I Am Who I Am and Will Always Be
