To everyone that told me to grow up or act my age. This is not meant to throw shade so sorry if it does just needed to vent my bad I meant to express my feelings in a constructive way. I don’t understand how you can say act my age when we do the same things at all different ages. But then there’s this thing called maturity adults like to throw around. But honestly I still don’t know what that means. After a break up we express our feelings in our own ways some very stupid and some just a little crazy. Example most people talk about there breaks up to friends or social media or both. The most thing I noticed is when we found out something that really hurts us like our spouse had cheated on us. The first thing we do is dis that new person up and down like you went from all this to that. Down grade this and upgrade this and all the other fun stuff. Then the next thing we do is stun on that person. So we go buy some new clothes, maybe hit the club, get drunk, put up pictures with your close friends or people you just meet that night “having a good time” later that makes its way to social media. Some people like to fight to get our anger out. Sometimes you find yourself eating more to de-stress. Maybe you find yourself wanting to loss weight but why is it something that was said to you are your self-conscience after that heart break or what ever happened Hmm so many questions. Also we have a temper tantrum as my mom always called it. Which means hold up let me look it up….. O boy look A tantrum, temper tantrum, meltdown or hissy fit is an emotional outburst, associated with children or those in emotional distress, that is typically characterized by stubbornness, crying, screaming, defiance, anger ranting, a resistance to attempts at pacification and, tiredness , hitting and etc. Did you know you never grow out of this also bet you didn’t know that. Now the Big Bang o there not fully Mature yet. Maturity is never a destination that you reach someday while growing up. It’s more like certain amount of common sense or general knowledge as well as sufficient control upon your emotions which you really cant control.”In psychology, maturity is the ability to respond to the environment in an appropriate manner. Maturity also encompasses being aware of the correct time and place to behave and knowing when to act, according to the circumstances and the culture of the society one lives in.”Well that was a lot to process, but enjoy your life don’t let anyone tell you to grow up or act your age because it doesn’t mean anything. I love my family because they don’t act there age they say little dry jokes and just are crazy in general we reflect them and they reflect us just the way it is. I love my grandma I swear so is sooo funny I don’t know how this world would be if there was something as act your age because we couldn’t it’s the way we connect to the people around us. Thank you for reading also another way to relieve stress is to write. Peace
