Hi, I'm a freshmen in high school and I'm too mature. I'.m completely different from everyone my age. I feel so lonely and empty cause i can't relate to anyone i know. Let me just give some examples.
I'm an atheist and get into arguments with my mom cause she believes the bible is literally true
I already have my own views on politics and I'm 15!
I like to examine history and actually care about school and my grades
I like classical music, classic rock and progressive metal
I don't obsess over celebrities or singers like everyone my age does
I don't like playing any sports and never have, although i watch football and MMA
I'm a little shy and have never had a girlfriend
I absolutely despise mainstream music like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga or those other rappers
I never cheat on tests in school, everyone else leeches off someone else like a parasite
Were reading Fahrenheit 451 in English and, unlike everyone else, find it very interesting
I don't have such two-dimensional views about things
I always like being up to date about what is happening in the world, like government and world events
I'm not so ill behaved like everyone else
I like many things other people consider "lame"
When i play video games, I actually like playing for the plot and expect and well written game
I'm just wondering, what do you think? This isn't even a complete list too.
Answer on I'm too mature for my age.?
I think that in a lot of ways you're probably more mature than the people around you, and possibly even more intelligent. But, well. If you have to tell people you're mature, you're probably not.
Maturity is something you stop thinking about having when you actually get it. My advice is to stop obsessing, because when you're 25, you will be AMAZED at how immature you were when you were 15. Instead of making lists (seriously, you're making lists?) of all the ways you're different from your classmates, focus on the similarities you have with any individual person.
High school is so much just a pothole on life's highway. Everything seems SO important now, but when it's all over you'll realize that the truly important parts of your life are just beginning. My advice is to enjoy it while it lasts, and try to find people who think like you do, who make you feel good. You might be surprised which of the people around you secretly love Pachelbel and actually understand what's going on in Libya.
