    Still A Kid

    Many people in real life think that I am mature because I act proper and try to make the right decisions. I interact well with adults and seem focused. I have decent grades and have a high potential for success. I didn't goof around much and act like most of my peers do. ...

    As A Little Girl I......

    Got away with all manner of things where my parents were concerned! I still do, and my parents still don't lecture me about the things I do, people I see. I think gone way a person develops should be guided by parents but in a very relaxed way, to coax rather than berate.

    Little Girl

    Flying kites, playing with sand on the beach, watching anime and fairies it's all fun!   Perhaps that little girl who enjoys the simple things in life, will grow up one day and notice, life is not as magical or enchanting as I see it.  Yet...

    I'm Not Sure She Ever Will.

    The little girl in me is definitely still there. The side of me that still wants to be adored and cuddled and tucked into bed each night. The part that wants to lie in my bedroom floor with my crayons and color in coloring books. The child with the unruly brown hair, laying in...

    I have a love/hate relationship with the idea

    of growing up. I am small and look young for my age. I am 15 but people guess I am 12 or 13 all the time or younger. When that happens I hate it. I get very annoyed but because I am really shy I don't have the tools to do much about it. I usually just stand there quietly and...

    Big Girls Don't Cry.

    Maybe this is a good thing, always keeping that inner child..still when you feel like that little girl is in pain..then maybe not. I am mature, I think. I try..constantly try to be an adult. My head tells me that I should be able to do so much more by now, that I am an adult...

    She Hasn't Grown Up And Never Will, But I Love Her!

    The little girl in me hasn't grown up and I do know why. She's still hurt, afraid and feels lonely. She is the part of me that split off when I was at her age, thanks to my miserable abusive parents. I didn't understand when she took over at times, but now that we've arranged...

    On My Own

    I am now 18. Inevitably, I'll have to adjust to the change I will soon encounter, but still, I am hesitant. This is all I've ever known and although I REALLY want to get on with my life I am unsure if I will be able to handle all of this on my own.
