I’m 16, a young woman, interested in politics, languages, technology and going to make a year abroad. The whole world is open to me but I still get treated as a 10 year old girl from way too many people. I maybe look younger than I am, but that isn’t a reason!
People tell me not to forget this, that I’m not allowed to do that or they think they can bossy me around the whole time. Whenever I overcome myself to make it clear to them, that I’m too old for these treatment and that I am 16 – What most of them don’t want to believe me – they ignore my efforts and continue to treat me as before.
I’m in a doom-loop, yay!
I’m really finding myself in a doom loop. Whatever I do or say, it doesn’t help. I probably should start ignoring it, ignoring isn’t a solution most of the time, but it sure is for me in this situation, I somehow have to get out of this doom-loop. I don’t want to get treated as a girl with 20.
