The other day I was chatting with my girlfriends and this idea of either we’re “ girl” or “woman” came up. My girlfriends and I are all about the same age, however, we feel differently as if we’re “ girl” or “woman” or in betweens.
Some of us feel that when we’re by ourselves, or at the work place, we feel like a “ woman”. However, when we’re at home, or with our BF or Hubby, we feel like a “ girl” or even like a “baby” !!!!
Others feel like a girl, or a woman, as for me, I feel like I am something in between. So why do we feel this way? I personally feel like I am no longer a girl, because the super cute clothes that I used to crave (even when I feel like physically maybe I am a little too old for them?) I no longer crave for them. I know I can probably pulled them off, since I’m still in my 20’s and with my face I can easily pull off as a girl. ( I been mistake for being 18 on multiple occasions.. lol ) But I don’t crave for them, not because they are not cute anymore, but because I have matured inside.
( Although I don’t feel the pictures represent exactly what I mean, but close enough)
So Basically, how we dress is the age we are inside. You may sometimes see older people dressing like teenagers, & that is probably because that’s their age inside. They still feel like a kid, so they dress like one. I know that sounds kind of harsh right there. ( but if you look good then you look good! ok, not judging!) & I know many people, especially woman likes to stay as young looking as possible. But when you have honestly matured, you would not want to dress immaturely.
I think this is also the reason why the dress code is so important at a work place. How you dress reflects who you are inside, and if you’re an employee representing a company, they do not want you to represent poorly!
So let’s go back to the whole “ age theory”. As I mention earlier, sometimes we feel different age or act different age when we’re with different people. I conclude that it is because of the different level of connection with another person. When we think of innocence, we think of young people or children. The characteristic of an innocent person is the fact that he/she can easily trust another person & we only easily trust the people who we are closely connected with. Which is why sometimes you may see a guy who is totally manly in public but acts like a baby with his girlfriend in private!
At the end, what is my real age? I don’t know, but I still think it’s somewhere in between a girl and a woman. I realize I actually don’t act very differently in private or in public. I like to dress womanly and act cute sometimes but I don’t like to act like an girl who needs to be help or rescue from a man constantly.
What do you think is your real age?
