I Don't Always Act My Age

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,584 People

    My age group is.. It's whole own thing.

    I often find myself hanging out with people younger than me or older than me. I guess I'm mature enough to converse with adults and yet so very playful-enough to get along with little kids ^.^

    Sometimes it's hard to hang out with my old

    friends because they either have kids or are married and can't have there freedom to hang out like before. I tend to act younger and be pretty relax yet work hard if I have too.

    Family Time

    Sometimes it is just fun to forget that you are a wife and mother to simply enjoy the moment, fool around with your kids and just have fun for the sake of having fun. I think in today's society we forget to enjoy the simple things, all too often too focussed on our lives...

    A Little Bit Of This, A Little Bit Of That

    Ever since I've been a kid I've been more responsible and mature than most people I know. However, I can change that attitude and in a split second I can be 5 again. Most people get confused when they meet me, as I always act more mature when people first meet me, but I love the...

    Never Do!

    I don't think I really know how to. I always stop to think after a birthday, like the one that just passed. And see if I feel any different. I don't look it, why should I feel it. I should act more mature I just don't think that would be me though. :)

    Advice On Acting Your Age

    When I was a little girl, like 4,or 6, people would tell me that I needed to act my age. At that time, it was me acting "too old" and being told to lighten up and act more like the child I was. There would be time for me to be "so serious" later when I grew up. Then, I hit...

    Anything But Mature

    Almost 15, yet I don't feel like it. I still feel so young and naive, such a dreamer, running around with my little cousins and getting mud on my leggings while climbing the big tree in their backyard. It's nice, though. Just sometimes I can be anything but mature.

    Why Should I?

    I have so much more fun on the weekend when I just let go and act as i want or as the mood its me.  I am adult when i have to be and can be childish and have a lot of fun.  It would be dull not to be flexible and enjoy the life I have now.

    How Old Am I Again?

    For many years, I have been accused of "not acting my age." I had a hard time making friends in school, preferring my own company as opposed to other people. I was still (mentally) a kid when I graduated. And even then I still have issues with maturity and stuff. I think I am now...

    Yeah, I've Always Been Different.

    You know, every time I think about when I was little I've always acted more mature. Actually, I was sex crazed at a very young age. My mother actually took me to a doctor because she said my unusual need to be held and touched was bad. i've always wanted to be held.
