    I Just Wish My Worries Could Go Away, Though

    I love being childlike. I love playing with toys and building things with blocks or Legos. I love reading childrens books. I love being cuddled up and just feeling safe. And I so miss not having responsibilities and bills and all of that. I haven't gone and played in the dirt...

    Still See Things Differently And Like To Play

    I don't think it matters what your age is as long as you never let go of your inner child. Being a parent has given me a chance to share things that I always enjoyed with my son and daughter. No surprise that they like some of the same things too!! The inner child that was...

    I'm innocent, and don't talk about serious

    topics. Basically I'm the same as I was when I was 12. Which is an issue when I look to enter a relationship, I'm also interested in older women :/. So I'm a 20 year old 12 year old.

    Child Within Me

    There is a child within me because I enjoy doing things at my older age just like I did when I was a child.For one thing, I enjoy spending time at the playground and swinging on the swings and going as high as I can. The pure joy of climbing up an inflatable obstacle course when...

    Maybe... I Dunno..

    I never really get all the chance of being a child. Yes, I play when I was a child, but i guess i have this feeling of not enough. So i want to make up for it, i didn't grow up well. *laugh* Seriously. Hehe. I am someone with tendency to play and imagining things. Toys still...

    Bright Colours And Such

    I love expressing my inner child; I'm already petite and considered "cute" so it fits. Video games and cartoons still fill me with the same joy and delight as they did when I was younger. Only now, they're more of a reminder of what I strive to do with my life and I what I want...

    White Rabbit

    I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!

    I Feel Like I'm Trapped In A World Of Adults Which I Have Nothing In Common With

    I never rebelled against my parents during my adolescent years. I'm kind of the same person as I was when I was 12. I don't like scary movies or actions. When I watch movies it's always comedies or child movies (Disney, Tinker Bell, Beauty and the Beast). I found a childlike...

    Fact is, I never really got a childhood cos of family problems. Major issues meant I had to grow up in a very short period of time. So now, when things have calmed down a little, I'm able to go back and live that childhood... I'm able to be a kid and do all those things like jump...

    You Have No Idea..

    Ask my parents. They'll tell you how childish I am. I get childish from some people, while others tell me how I'm so mature. I'm apparently childish because I still ask my parents for things the same way I did when I was little, I still like lollipops after I go to the doctors...

    Kids Rock ^^

    I loved being a kid. Thinking back of it, my life as a little kid was waaaay more comfortable than my life as a stubborn and troubled teenager. I still love being childish sometimes. Some part of me never grew up I think ^^ but it shouldnt be that bad, I'm not officially grown up...

    I Am Jo The Woman-child

      I was 42 a couple of weeks ago while on a long holiday in Russia and Estonia, but in my head I’m still a young teen.   I had a very unhappy and loveless childhood home life and was regularly beaten by my father until I was 18. My mother didn’t...

    I am childlike, sometimes. I try to hide that fact, a lot of times, because people will try to take advantage! But, I guess it's because I never lost the child innocence in me, while growing up. :-) Also, I often hang around and take care of children. So, it sort of rubs off. XD...

    I Honestly Believe...

    That I wasn't raised past the age of 8 or so. It shows in the way that I handle life and the situations it brings.

    Growing Up Is For the Serious

    I always liked to think one never truly had to grow up, but that one matures while still being able to indulge in childlike behaviors when appropriate. It seems rather sad that just because one reaches a certain age they have to stop engaging in fun activities that might make...

    I'm Like A Child

    My husband feels like he has two kids instead of one because I am like a child according to him. I also have anxiety so when I have them and have meltdowns, it looks like I am having a tantrum. I do get really childish during them and I even throw things or even hit. I have...

    I'm Childlike, And I Hate When Its Mistaken For Immaturity Or Stupidity.

    I have weird moments where I feel like a little girl again. I guess I just miss being a little girl so much that I sometimes act kinda like it. I'm really playful at times, and I've had people tell me how innocent and sweet I seem. Even when I know I'm not, I just smirk. When I...

    Child-like Sight

    My mother is constantly telling me a situation is more complicated than I am seeing it as. I say people, too often, complicate the world around them, until it is too hard for them to understand it.
