"Age is just a number." How many times have you heard that cliché? It's because it's true.
Earlier this month, I turned 20-years-old. There were several people years ago that when I told them my birthday was coming up, they thought I was turning 20 because they thought I was wise for my age. In actuality, I was turning 17! Of course, I took it as a compliment, but thinking about that recently got me thinking: at what age do people feel the most comfortable? If you're confused by that, allow me to explain.
In that scenario I just described, adolescents (i.e. teenagers) like to be told they're older than they really are. However, as you get older, you want to be told you look younger than you are, so where's the cut-off? Early/mid-20s maybe? That seems to be the prime age everyone wants to be at. Kids and teenagers want to age quickly so they can be allowed to do stuff. Adults dread the age they're at because they think they're "one step closer to death" (I hate to sound morbid, but that's simply the way some people think, sadly). Well, what if I told you that any age is a great age?
