A friend and I have been discussing the idea of age. It’s purpose and what it really means to grow up. it’s true, age is just a number that we’v given to define what we can do and when we can do it. Our age gives us restrictions on what experiences we can and should have. When someone says ‘you’re too young’ or you’ll understand when you’re older’ it makes me want to ask why? it’s true I may have not had the experience that will; make me discover it for myself, but it doesn’t mean that I can’t listen, can’t digest what is being told to me. I have a functioning brain and I am capable of learning and absorbing of new ideas and taking on new perceptions. The person saying it may be older and had more life experience but that fails to give the right to talk down to me when I say something foolish or something “childish”. I have seen women in their forties act like the girls I went to high school with. I have friends who are still in high school who talks far more intellectually than any “adult” I have ever met before. Let the credentials age gives you fade out. They don’t really mean a thing. Don’t let age diminish your capabilities. Don’t let the number of age define you.
