I am not that adolescent…

As a 24 year old, 18 days from my 25th birthday, I can say that who I am is pretty much solidly formed. I started to think about my thoughts about who I was during adolescence, and who I am now. I can’t clearly tell you what I am, but I can tell you what I am not in comparison to my adolescent years.

  1. I am not that adolescent who is looking at other for traits and mannerisms that are worthy of adopting.
  2. I am not that adolescent that took refuge in the Christian reggeaton culture that was somewhat prevalent in Puerto Rico in the early 2000s. I used to have a rapper name when I used to compose rap songs.
  3. I am not that adolescent that sees my Christian INTJ self as a thing to suppress, hide, or consider an aspect of sinners.
  4. I am not that adolescent who’s hiding who I am from the world.
  5. I am not that adolescent who thought that they had to try to be cool.
  6. I am not that adolescent who thought that I was wise and/or tried to act as a wise man.
  7. I am not that adolescent who was confused between what I was told that I had to be and what I felt that I was inside.
  8. I am not that adolescent that was ignorant about life.
