    Judged Because Of Age

    and not because of experience. I know that I am a lot younger than most here on EP, but I am also the same age for some. Older people dont believe when I say I want to help and hurt me with painful insults. But adults are supposed to be better and that and overlook age right...

    The amount of times I've heard the words

    'you're too young to understand' 'wait until you're my age' Yes, understandably I haven't had as much life experience as someone who has lived twice, or three times as long as I have - but that doesn't mean that I don't know anything or that my opinion isn't just as valid...

    I hate to say it but some people my age have

    more sense than those triple our age. We shouldn't be judged based on age just how act to each other and how we get through life. I guess the rest of the world just hasn't caught on yet.

    My Problems With Age

    So I wrote a story but EP decided it needed to

    vanish immediately after I had finished writing it. It was quite long and I was quite pleased with it so it left me feeling rather pissed off. What follows will be a shorter and less grander version I'm afraid. I find it rather annoying this idea that age equals maturity...

    Just because some of the kids on here are

    immature, I speak for myself too, that doesn't mean we can't coexist with you fellow adult people. So what? You see our posts, ranging from meaningful to funny, our questions that can be immature but also some just ask for guidance, you can easily ignore them or try to help us...
