    I Think I Need To Learn How

    I wish I could act like a normal 19-year-old girl! I can't though. I'm actually too mature for my age. I can't get into the partying, drinking, or being crazy. I think people my age are just ignorant, petty, and annoying. I feel like I'm too serious for most people's tastes. I...

    I want to feel like an 18 year old teen.

    Instead I feel like I am almost 30 because of the people I am constantly surrounded by.

    I don't think we ever should act our age.

    I think we should always maintain some sort of maturity but never losing a sense of childhood and adventure. Never becoming to "old" to be in touch with your younger self.

    I'm 18 years old and I still feel like I'm 10.

    I don't want to be an adult.

    So ya I'm 15. And I don't act my age.

    I either act as an adult, (people say I'm an old soul) I don't do any of these "trends" kids do. Also most of my friends are adults. Or I act like a young child! I get excited over kid stuff, like new tv shows like Sofia the first. I know it's weird but hey I'm my own person.

    Actually, I Do...

    I do act my age.It's just the years on my personal calender which are all wrong...Our actions and behaviour are a reflection of our spirit. But that spirit never gets older.Wiser, maybe.More mature, possibly.Gathering experience, surely.As we move along the time-line, we...

    Hell. what am I supposed to act like.

    A hundred years ago I would probably be dead by now. Fifty years ago I would look and do what my grand father did and that was not much at all, he was worn out by then and actually died 4 years younger than I am now. I am disabled, my back in ten vertebra are basically in a...

    That hidden kid inside us sometimes makes us

    I was at work over the weekend,

    and everyone was getting ready to go out on the pool deck. I teach swimming lessons. Many lessons all start at once, and there's this strange but beautiful hush just before lessons start. Kids are lined up at the meeting areas for their levels, and all us instructors are...

    I try to ignore people

    who tell me this. Being a teenager is a double sided edge. Were told to "grow up" but we're still treated as a child. So...NO! I won't act my age. Neah. 😛

    everyone says to me act your age,

    but when I do I get in trouble for it, what they mean is don't act your age act like a grown up

    Im 17 years old. And yes,

    technically i am still a child. But do i act it? no. I've had to take on a lot of responsibility and gone through many things to help me mature much quicker than normal. I don't like being treated like a younger kid. Yes, i expect it, but once you get to know me i'm totally...

    I think I don't act my age because

    so many teenagers go to clubs get drunk, smoke and think that destroying their lives is the true meaning of being young. And I'm just thinking about my future, about how I'm going to change things with my work, how I love to investigate, read, paint, write, create and learn...

    I guess behaving like an adult like you should

    be is not good when all your friends are immature. I feel like there is a gap in our connection.

    I am 18 years old yet I don't act my age

    because I don't feel it.in reality I feel like I'm 20 years old because I've experienced and seen things well beyond my current age. plus I'm pretty spiritual and wise for my age as well which adds to it.
