I am very youthful within appearance and I am soft-spoken.

Many think I am younger than what I am. Even when I was in my twenties and thirties, I was either mistaken for a teenager or other than the age that I actually was.

I turned forty-seven this past spring and I still have a young-looking face, body, and young-sounding voice.

I am not at all complaining, however, some ignorant people misjudge me by my appearance.

I don’t take it personal (it is not a reflection of me but of them and their lack of experience or diversity) yet I get tired of it.

As a younger person I was never the naive, silly or vulnerable type. I was wise beyond my years and spunky.

People were often shocked at the knowledge, strength, and understanding I had at an early age.

All young people are not dumb and all older people do not possess wisdom. And vice-versa. It all depends on the individual. I have always been an open-minded person.

I am not one to be underestimated and I am not one to be played with.

It is funny when certain people think that they can or could destroy me- I turn around to destroy their asses!

    1. It is true. A lot of older people don’t like to admit when they are wrong and that they do not know everything.

      They often generalize younger people yet if they were truly wise they would acknowledge that kids and those younger than them are people who have a mind too and everyone is on different levels with different mentalities.

      We are all individuals.

      They need to remember it is even in the Bible. Each generation is weaker and “wiser”. Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age. It comes with our own experience and our ability to perceive and understand life and circumstances.

      A younger person can teach an older person something and a older person can teach a younger person something. It depends on the individual’s knowledge not their age.
