… Because I honestly still feel like a girl.
I recently turned 23 (woohoo!) and I was so sure I’d wake up feeling “older”. Not old, just older. I’m sure of this every year and yet every time a birthday goes by, I end feeling like a little girl.
When I was 16 I was sure I’d feel like a grown up at 18. When 18 came around, I waited patiently for 21 to make me feel like a woman but alas, no such luck. Now that I’m 23 I’m wondering if I’ll feel like a real adult by the time I hit 25 or once I’m married?
It’s not that I don’t feel responsible. I have my moments and I think I handle responsibility well enough at work.
Maybe my problem is the fact that I have 2 much older siblings so I never really get to catch up, do I? Most of my friends are much older than me too. I don’t have any problem with being the “baby”. I’ve come to accept that, but I want to feel like a woman, you know?
*Awkward moment up ahead*
Maybe it’s got to do with the fact that I’m still a virgin (yes, I’m waiting until Daniel and I get marriage, that’s my right). Ladies, does it make a huge difference? What was your experience?
So, I just thought I’d share that with you and I want to know how all of you feel. When did your “womanhood” kick in? Marriage, motherhood, when you bought your first car? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading the randomness that is this little post.
(P.S. I wonder how many of you thought I was about to share that I want a sex change…)
