I wrote at the start of the year about Respecting your elders and i feel my secondary point didn’t get across all to well.
My primary point was about should you still respect your elders if they have done something wrong or hurt you and i think that point cam across clear. My second point was about when do you start to be treated as an adult and not as a child? I’ve put effort into the last 6 months to have people stop treating me like a child and like if stated previously i’m no longer a child. I’m 24 years old, happily married and have been for 2 and a half years and am in an almost 7 year long relationship. I’ve also been in the workforce full time for 3 years…so does this mean i’m mature enough to be considered an adult?
Apparently this is not the case…
People still seam to think that i’m not an adult and treat me as such. I know i have some stuff to learn but shouldn’t things be at a point where you stop assuming i’m a child and i don’t know how things work. I mean most people would be surprised on what i know, granted i don’t know a lot of stuff and certain fields of knowledge i have trouble in but in my line of work i know what i’m talking about. Anything to do with computers i’m the first one people ask but if people talk about movies, videos, animation or editing…i’m the last one people go to. Not just they they try and explain how some of this stuff works i tell them i already know and they keep going anyway.
It’s infuriating that i’ve taken such big steps in the last 6 months not only at home but at work and in other activities and people still see me as a child. I’m not one to brag about what i do or how i help, thats why i’m not sharing that here but if you know me then you know what i do.
I’ve already ask you what you think about this subject but if you think there is a point or what does someone have to do to not be treated like a child then please share with me…because what i’m doing isn’t working.
