So glad you enjoyed the read and can relate, Jodi. It’s probably not the case for every 20’s/30’s person, but when it does apply, it’s so frustrating! It’s tough when you look younger than your age — I think a lot of people think of it as a compliment sometimes, but it can also be a bit of a disadvantage as well.

More of the older generation should be a little more self-aware when it comes to talking to younger people. Not everyone that is younger is actually that young!
