I’m not even sure how to describe it or where I am going with this thought. As a child, you know only your age. You are a child, you get seated at the kids table until you’re like 12, then you move to a different table which is mixed and you have no idea what is going on. You know you want to have the benefits of being an adult with the benefits of being a kid. This goes on for years. Probably until you head to college…or get a full-time job because not everyone has the same experience of adulthood.
Okay, so then…there is years where you still get to act like what is described as a teen…but also an adult. You get stuck and your parents help you.
But then, all of a sudden, you are an adult. You’ve lived alone, you got married, you have children. You’re in one of these groups.
Something happens. I feel, from personal experiences, that this happens probably between 22-32. You may be in one of these groups, but all of a sudden you may be at a different “age” than other people that fall into that group.
Example, I have a friend who is in her early 30’s and a cousin in her late 20’s and they are both on their second pregnancy. Imagine if they were in the same town…their kids could be in the same class so would their age matter. They could be phone tree buddies!!
I went on a trip recently and our ages ranged from 19-34. We had a blast, we all got along!!
Well, I’m just saying…you get to a point where age doesn’t matter.
