Am I an adult?

A few weeks ago, my parents were invited to a birthday party. My mom asked if she should pass the message along to my brothers and me but was told no, because the party was only for adults and small children.

Now, the story could have been relayed to me incorrectly. But when I first heard this I was rageful, because I was hurt. I consider myself an adult. I consider my younger brothers to be adults, as well. I spent so much of my childhood looking up to someone who, even now, doesn’t consider me an equal? My feelings were hurt, and I needed some time to process them.

But you know what? It doesn’t matter. The facts are: I’m 26 years old. I live 200 miles away from my parents.

I regularly set up my Lego collection on my car rug and play for hours.

I eat off planet plates for almost every meal.

I have a 2-foot tall stuffed penguin that sits at the kitchen table. (At least for right now,) I run a small business out of my home. I’m honest, and I know the weight that words can carry.

As long as I’m happy with who I am, how others view me doesn’t matter.

    Whether you’re an adult or a kid, you’re pretty awesome.

    I love your positive outlook. I especially love that you hold on to your childish ways like planet plates and your legos. Seriously! It’s always inspiring to me when I see other adults that are willing to “play” and enjoy themselves. It seems like so many people grow into adults and lose that part of themselves.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re considered a child or an adult. Like you said… as long as you’re happy with you. I think you’re pretty swell :-)

    I don’t care if you’re an adult or a child; you’re awesome either way. I’m jealous of your Lego space needle and those planet plates are so cool.
