"Acting your age" must be the ugliest sentence in the English language. There is no "right" way to act when you're a certain age. We are far too much influenced by media, pop culture and the rest of society telling us that you're less of a person when you don't do this, act like that, dress like this etc. If I don't measure up to the image of what a 20-something should be in someone else's eye, then so be it. I do want I want, or at least try to.

Being an adult just means being biologically fully grown. Emotionally, there isn't an adult on this entire planet.

I'm 31, but feel more like a kid at times. When my father was 31 he was well-established in his career, owned a home, had been married for years, had one son and another one on the way.

What do I have at 31? I live at home in the same bedroom I've had since 1973. Instead of owning a house I've never even lived on my own. I've never even owned my own car and I've never yet had a real job of any sort. Instead of being married, I'd be lucky if I ever went on a date.

I feel like an adult in some ways, a kid in others. I am responsible, have a job and my own apartment and support myself, and I am working on a degree to start the career I want. But in many ways i am still a kid because I can't handle any type of romantic relationship (I've never even dated), and I am so insecure and lacking in confidence. I am constantly questioning my ability to make the right decision.
