Why act your age?
Having always been a bit silly and highly spirited (aka ADHD) I grew up hearing people tell me to act my age. It always confused me. What does 8 act like? I don’t mean developmentally because I never had an issue with that. I mean behaviorally. What does 12 act like? What does 16 act like? Sometimes my friends would tell me to act my age, not my IQ. That was a given. I mean seriously, who wants to act between 125 and 135 on any given day? Then again, what does 125 act like??
My theory was people acted like who they were, not how many years they’ve been on earth. That said, it’s hard to shake that when you hear it over and over again.
