What is the worst/most annoying thing about being your age?

Updates:
I would say the most annoying thing about being 19 is that I'm expected to grow up and stop acting like a teen and get my shit together but at the same time I'm still not old enough to be taken seriously as an adult, yanno?

  • Being both an adult and not an adult at all. I have to pay for my insurance etc, but can't rent a car or earn like a grown up. Also you're too young for a real job, but too old for a shitty job like being a cashier.

  • I don't know if everyone at 19 feels this way at some point; but it's this feeling of loss/uncertainty that comes outta no where.

  • 1. Not being of legal drinking age

    2. Being one year away from being able to get my license, so close but so far

    3. Hormonal boys asking for sex and nudes constantly

    4. Acne

    5. Being treated the same as my younger siblings, and not being looked at as a mature person

    6. Having everyone ask if I'm on my period when I get mad

    7. Being pressured to act like an adult when I'm not treated as one (although I'm only 15)

    8. Not being allowed to make my own choices and live my own life

  • I was just talking about this with my mom. The more I grow up the more I realize how crappy this world is. I wish I was young again at that age where we believed in the make believe. So, I never have to come to terms with what life is really about or what responsibility and stress feels like. I can lay back play with my legos and barbies and keep thinking today is tomorrow. If that makes sense.

  • Honestly? 30 is pretty great. Everyone takes you seriously, but you're still considered youngish. I can't complain.

    I definitely shared your frustration at 19 and in my early 20s. Unfortunately, as you get older and look back on yourself at this age you will cringe and understand why people didn't take you seriously hahaha happens to the best of us! Try not to let it bother you and just enjoy your youth :)

  • I just turned 18. Literally everything was thrown at me. Good and Bad. I just found out I had money saved up so thats good. i added it up along with what i earned in the summer. I got a credit card, but I had to make the appoinment with the bank i wanted plus all these other student discounts i have to hunt down. My mom was with me but i was asked all the questions.. some of which i didn't know how to respond and would turn to my mom (but i felt like a child doing that. i just felt uncomfortable) i have to make my own dr. s app. now and i need an ID when i arrive. im just not used to it. i didn't even know what the IRS was until 2 days ago. lol

  • Older people won't take me seriously. I'm pretty smart and don't talk unless I know what I'm talking about. But there will always be someone older who thinks that anyone who's younger can't have a valuable opinion.

  • I'm 21 in college full time. Everyone thinks I'm a pos because I'm in college and not working. I feel a lot of times I should be at the bar, messing around with friends, doing drugs and not caring. I've never done any of that so I feel like I'm not alive at times. Society norms. Erg

    • @ anonymous 18-24 dont feel like that, get your degree. Let me tell ya that@ 18 out of high school I had a 9-5 job, went to college and a wife pregnant at home. All my friends were at the bar, calling me to drink and party. Now they're still working at 50ish and I'm retired at 53, so I say get your degree, work and party later.

  • I am currently 18 years old. The sudden jump into adulthood is very tough for me, especially since other people always took care of my life before. I never had to do anything by myself and suddenly, people are like, "You should get it by yourself, you can buy it yourself, you should think about it yourself," Again, I'm so not used with being independent, especially since I am suffering from a lot of mental illnesses, particularly Depression, ADHD, Anxiety, Bipolar. I never really tell others though that I have these problems. I feel like they will not be listening to me if I do tell them and most of the time, it's true.

    • yep the notorious labeling system. try not to label yourself either because we are in a constant state of change and being stuck with a label can seriously impede your growth. im not saying you dont suffer these symptoms but they are not what defines you. much love and have a great day.

    • @emist I know, that's why I dislike the society, because they expect everyone to be the norm and what they are supposed to be. Individually though, not everyone can do it.

      Thanks and you too!

    • you already sound like a very mature lady. just remember it is society that is truelly sick.

  • i got very very depressed when i turned 30 this year. life goes by so fast and even though i look young, my body starts getting more aches and issues with age

    I'm already somewhat wrecked and I'm getting more wrecked as time passes by.

    Oh and being almost completely undesired by the opposite sex. Nothing in my powers can change this it seems. That gives you them deep feels. It makes you question whether something is wrong with you or if you're just an alien πŸ‘½.
