Its rather odd to me when someone become an adult and people continue to ask, “how old are you?” I find this question rather annoying and uncomfortable as I feel like the person is annoying me. I personally look rather young for my age. Since I was 18 years old people have constantly treated me like I was a child. Now I’m in my mid twenties and its really bothering me.
I AM NOT A CHILD!!!!
I feel like constantly screaming at the top of my lungs. Even people who knew me from middle school saw me grow up even forget how old I am. I think to myself. You really think after over 10 years I just stopped aging and have been 13 for the past 10 years. WOW, you really must be living in another planet or something. I feel need to speak up about this issue, not everyone is aging the same. Some people age different. Just because someone looks one way doesn’t give you the right to treat them disrespectful. I had to stop laughing, smiling, and being sometimes just genuine friendly and nice just because if I did someone would assume I was younger and treat me like I was a child. I miss so much laughing and smiling in public.
In the few moments that I do smile and laugh many times people compliment me and others just think “Aww, yours so cute.” I’m not okay with being insulted and mistreated just because I am a child. If I am out with someone else who just so happens to look older then me, sometimes people will refer to me as “her” and point to me like I don’t understand what they are saying and while talking to the other person. It’s very insulative to me.
When I was 22 years old my eyes for some reason started bothering me when I got my eyes dilated for my yearly eye exams. I decided to ask my mother if she could come with me so she could drive me because of me need to dilated me eyes. The doctor and nurses treated me as a child. I had to keep explaining myself to each person in the office just because my mother was with me. Yes, I left very insulted. I say this as many examples of different people who have treated me young. I simply want to say that just because someone looks younger, doesn’t mean you should disrespect them.
Treat people with kindness and respect
Have ever been mistreated because you look younger then your age?
Whatever life takes you, just enjoy your life. Think positive and be positive.
