I Am Mature For My Age

    I'm VERY mature for my age.

    . We'll... Mentally, I still kinda look like a 12 year old but I don't think that's gonna change.. I'm not a stereotypical teenager, I don't need boys, alcohol or drugs to be happy, in fact, I'm more of a counselor to my friends. They come to me with their problems, I don't like...

    I don't think I'm THAT mature

    but I think rationally. Also, for those who text me sentences like this: "hai, wut r u ^ 2?" Is too complex for me, Hahahahahahahahah. I just think it's a bit dumb looking, but that's just me. What do you guys think?

    Sometimes I think too hard,

    I have to back myself out. Though thinking about things that might not even matter, helps me understand. I remember sitting out at a lake, thinking to myself for hours. It's so crazy, I can't put it into words, but I wish I could sit down with certain people and just talk. I...

    I've always been mature

    for my age. I never acted mature but my thoughts always were. People thought I was immature all the time but my mind was actually sharp and analytical. It never appeared that way though. I think part of maturity is understanding that it's okay to act younger than you really are...

    ...and it's becoming a problem.

    You see, I have trouble "fitting in" and, to me, I can befriend people older than me A LOT EASIER. Most of my friends are in university, whom I met whilst they were in Sixth Form, and the majority of the remainding lot are at least two years older than me. Why? I used to get...

    I was quite young when I learned the fact

    that 'maturity has nothing to do with age.' I had known it was coming, so I never got surprised whenever I was told, "You are way too mature for your age." In the end it is our experiences not age that make us sound mature before the world.

    I'm 15 years old. Around

    that age, a lot of teenagers are immature still as they develop into a adult. I think and act more like an adult (a 24 year old.) and communicate as clear and thorough to people. I speak scientific to people to show proof. No one can judge me that I'm like this, I'm happy the...

    Well in life you have to grow up and realise sometimes you have to stay quite and not argue or try to be funny!! Life's serious, you have to be serious in every situation it's ok to have a laugh every now and again but people need to realise when to stop and be serious

    I feel as if I am actually a 40 year old man.

    .. yes man. I'm not a typical 20 year old. I don't desire the life of going out and partying and drinking all night long, waking up in a stranger's bed. I'm exaggerating of course, but you get it. I'm content with being a homebody. There are some 20 year olds that favor...

    groups and everything I do, I was never really around people my age group growing up, even today in my classes I'm still the youngest among all the men and I learned a lot because of it :)

    Too Mature?

         I'm nearly fifteen years old, and I'm often told that I'm very wise for my age. Especially when I share my views on politics or religion with adults; they tell me that I speak with more knowledge and insight than many of their grown up friends do. My mom says that I've...

    I maybe only 14 but I have strong grasp of what

    happens in the world. I learned at an early age if you don't grow up quick, you get left behind. No way I was gonna let that happen to me anyway with my parents drink problems; someone has to look after my bro and sis, who else but me; big sis. :D

    I hate being so mature.

    It makes it hard not to hate people my age. I never knew how annoying teenage girls were until I entered college. Like OH MY GOD. And boys are just as annoying. I'm moving to Mars
