Did you ever get called a big baby?

#1

It’s very depressing. The idea that one couldn’t mature is depressing in itself. And the reasons are usually a mystery.

#2

This is akin to kicking a cripple. We have a serious emotional / mental disability that should not be put down.

The family I don’t get along with does call me this some times… they use to try and dismiss me.

The other thing they like to call me is Drama Queen…

I don’t mind that one as much as long as I get the appropriate head gear. :crown:

To me, it means in such a struggle that we have to be selfish and self obsessed and, as a result, are as dependent as a baby. The undesirable to those who no longer have anything to give. People get burn out about us which is understandable.

Sometimes I feel like one. I think in that state we are just looking for help or compassion.

My mom just called me a good kid. Sheesh I’m 41 years old. I don’t sound very mature when and if I talk I guess.

I opened Grimm’s Fairytales to a short story and read it. It was about someone who could only eat and sleep. It scared me so much I traded in the book. Some years later I bought the same book again, but haven’t looked for the story - about me - a big baby.

Sometimes feeling like an adult comes with parenthood.

This made me smile… My son will always be my baby boy no matter how old he gets. It’s a reflection of my feelings as a mother. I’m guessing that when your mom said this it was more of a reflection of her feelings for you then how you talk :smile:
