My mental age
She may be a grown woman but her mental age is 17 years old.
The voice (note: singular) in my head sounds exactly like it did when I was seventeen. As long as that voice sounds that way I don’t mind the number on my birthday cards ticking over and over.
I like that 17 year old voice – she’s laid back and sarcastic, insecure and optimistic yet as the birthday cards keep coming, her answers and advice are lined with wisdom, common sense and patience for her fellow (hu)man.
I believe my mental age is just right to keep me full of wonder at our world. My chronological age doesn’t phase me in the least. What you should be asking me is if my chronological age and my biological ages match. Now there’s a scary comparison!Liesl
