I feel sadness that I am not a child anymore

Postby James_Lee » Sun May 12, 2019 3:12 am

I am 19 now. And I can't help but feel a little sad about this. First, of course, I already explained in another thread, I have this feeling that I grew up too fast. Second, I feel that I am not ready to be at this age. And third, I miss the feeling of being a child, being seen as young and innocent. I miss being seen as a minor who has to be protected and everyone looking to reassure me. I miss feeling like all of life was ahead of me.
Does anyone else feel this sadness. What are some ways to deal with it?
Thanks

ı too had that feeling first at 15 years old. ı wanted to stay a child. ı couldnt get rid of that feeling at the rest of my life sometimes more intense. As a result ım a child in a mans body at 41. This causes somemental problems like anxiety ı think. I would like to learn ways to deal with this like james lee.

Don't worry. No one else knows how to make James a child again, either.

Yup. I think I was 14 when I first felt this sadness. But I feel it more now. How do you guys deal with it?

Whatever it is you still want to do, do it.

I also feel like I want to feel like a child. I know it sounds weird, but I think I grew up way too fast, I should have really had several more years left. I wasted the time and I am already an adult

Buddy, that's tough. Heck, I wouldn't mind being 45 again, a time when potential employers didn't look at me and think: "Too old."

What is it you want to do that you no longer can? The best years are still ahead of you.

I think you may have already adapted to the life as an adult, to the fact that time runs. I feel like I am in a new territory, territory I felt I would not be in as fast.
