I can’t adult today

What does the word “adult”mean? And when do we become adults? I’m closer to 30 years old than I am to 20, but I still wouldn’t call myself an adult; I don’t think I ever will. It doesn’t mean that I’m immature or that I didn’t get wiser with the years going by, I just didn’t see myself growing older.

When I look at myself in the mirror, I see the exact same person I saw when I was 10, 15 or 18. When people ask me how old I am, I freeze because I have to think about it (have you ever experienced this?). I may be a certain age, but I just didn’t see myself getting to that age.

I think everyone feels the same way, we just don’t realize how fast life goes by and we remain children at heart. There are days when we take responsibility for whatever is going on in our life, and there are days when we wish we were still the younger version of ourself, the one who didn’t have to worry about anything other than playing with our friends and enjoying the present moment. No matter how old we may be, the child in us will always be there, it is the very essence of ourself.

There are days when I want to dress up and look elegant, but there are days when I just need a funny purse and a cool graphic t-shirt. One day, I read a quote that I really liked: “I don’t dress my age, I dress myself”. This is exactly how I feel!

Do you ever feel the same way as I do, or am I alone in this?

What I am wearing:

  • T-shirt: Francesca’s, available here
  • Skirt: Lilly Rain,similar here and here
  • Purse: old, similar here and here
  • Shoes: old, I also really like these
  • Necklace: H&M

Que veut dire le mot “adulte”? Et à quel moment devenons-nous des adultes? Je me rapproche lentement mais surement de mes 30 ans, mais je ne me considère toujours pas comme une adulte et j’ai l’impression que je ne me considèrerai jamais comme telle. Cela ne veut pas dire que je sois immature, mais simplement que je ne me suis pas vue grandir. Quand je me regarde dans le miroir, je vois la même personne que je voyais quand j’avais 10, 15 ou 18 ans. Lorsque l’on me demande quel âge j’ai, je dois y réfléchir avant de pouvoir répondre (avez-vous déjà eu ce problème?). J’ai peut-être un âge précis, mais je ne me suis pas vue atteindre cet âge.

Je pense que tout le monde ressens la même chose, nous n’avons pas conscience de la vitesse à laquelle les années défilent et nous gardons en nous l’enfant que nous étions. Certains jours, nous assumons nos responsabilités, mais d’autres jours, nous rêvons à l’enfance et à sa tendre insouciance, lorsque nous profitions pleinement du moment présent. Peu importe notre âge, l’enfant demeure en nous.

Il y a des jours où j’ai envie de me sentir élégante et féminine, et des jours où j’ai tout simplement besoin d’un sac à main mignon et d’un t-shirt à message rigolo. Un jour, j’ai lu une citation qui a résonné en moi: “je ne m’habille pas selon mon âge, je m’habille selon qui je suis”. C’est exactement ce que je ressens!

Avez-vous le même sentiment que moi, ou suis-je la seule dans ce cas?
