There's nothing wrong with looking younger when you're like 40 and look like 30. There's a huge difference from being 22 and looking like a teenager.
Some days ago I was in a job interview and the lady said "aren't you too young to be on college?", and she was shocked when I told her I'm almost 22. Anyway, I got the job, but she said I needed to open an account on a specific bank.
Then today I decided to close my old bank account and the very first thing the guy said was "where's your mother?", then I said I was over 18, and he was like "no, you're not!", then I showed him my ID and he was like "see, you're not 18!", and then I said "look again, right here you can see I was born in 1990", he made an ugly face, apologised, and didn't ask me anything else.

I got what I wanted, sure, but it's really stressfull to always go through the same things over and over again.
I know it's better than having cancer or something like that, but it really makes me unhappy, specially when I look at the mirror and see that they're probably right, I look like a 14 year-old kid, and when I realize that my hands will be forever small and my stature isn't going to change anymore I just cringe and wish time would just freeze. I AM getting older, but in a teenager body, see the difference? It's even bearable today, but I don't wanna be that kind of guy that you think is a kid when you look at their back, and then when you see his old face you realize he's an adult.

Anyway, thanks everyone for your comments.
