Corporate wear doesn’t look good on you.
You look like you raided your mother’s closet and you’re playing dress-up. Everything’s just out of place—oh wait, that’s just your face. Ugh.

Wearing makeup looks like you’re trying to be grown-up.
And people think you’re too young for it. They all got it wrong! Do they even know how long your beauty regimen takes?!

You’re expected to be the sweet little girl.
You get haters for partying, smoking, and drinking. Your parents think you’re too young to reason with them or too young to even have a boyfriend. (The expectations are just making you wanna go wilder than you already are.)

Being told you’re lucky that you’ll look young in your 40s or 50s.
Ten or twenty more years of this foolery?! No more, please. And what about the rest of your young life, the present??

You’re still mistaken for a minor.
You can’t watch R18 (or worse, PG13) movies, get in a club, and buy a drink without being asked for your I.D. And when your I.D. is checked, you get a look of doubt or disbelief that you’re actually 25, like you faked your identity.


For more struggles you can relate to, head to!
