Have you ever felt slighted because of your age? Were you ever too old or too young (or looked the part) and were shunned or kept out of participating in a certain group? How did you feel about it?
I feel subconscious about my age. This being my first year outside the 18-25 grouping I've felt ostracized from my similarly aged peers and mentally with people younger than me, but not looking the part. I've been personally asked to leave a GLBT group due to my age (learned the term 'chicken hawk' that week ) and constantly feel left out just because I'm older. Have any of you felt similar? Should I feel this way or learn to accept it?
