Thread: How did you come to terms with being an adult baby?

  1. #1

    Default How did you come to terms with being an adult baby?

    Hi everyone, I'm struggling within myself about the rights and wrongs (?) of being a Little, as most people seem to see it as creepy weird or just plain crazy. I don't think that, but there is still a part of myself that wonders if there's something wrong with me. I'm wondering how you came to terms with it, if you ever went through feelings like this, etc. Thanks guys.

    For me, it comes down to how I think about right and wrong. I've always looked at the question by asking what effect something has on the world. It's kind of a utilitarian approach. If something makes people healthy, happy, or better off, then it's a good thing, and if it hurts people somehow, then it's bad.

    ABDL practices can sometimes be a little gross for people, but if you're careful about your hygiene, other people who aren't comfortable with it don't even have to know about it. They're not actually harmful though, you won't hurt your body from wearing and using diapers. And on the beneficial side, it's something that makes me really profoundly happy. And I know for a lot of other people here, it's a part of them that's really important for their overall well-being. So, I accepted that it's a good thing and allowed myself to be happy with it.

    That's good. I don't wear diapers and I'm not sure I ever will, however I do use a sippy cup and play with toys all day. I also talk in a baby voice when I'm at home (at least 60% of the time) and like to be babied by my boyfriend. Even burped. So I think I'm still a Little. I can honestly say it all feels completely right and natural at the time, it's more when I'm looking at other people's views of it I start thinking this way. I guess I just shouldn't worry what others think.

    But for instance like a week ago I had a nightmare where I brought my sippy cup to a family dinner and everyone wouldn't talk to me and just looked at me strange all night and it was awful. I dunno.

    I think it's important to understand why people think a certain way when judging whether you should care what they think. Many people don't like acting little simply because it's different from the way the average person wants to behave. That doesn't make it wrong though. Fear of what's different without a good reason doesn't make something wrong.

    It's important to be aware that it's a private thing though. And also that lots of things aren't appropriate for a formal dinner. You wouldn't expect someone to show up at a family dinner all sweaty and wearing a martial arts uniform, or dressed only in bike shorts after a workout, that would be really embarrassing too (and likely more gross than acting little, honestly). Nor would you expect someone to show up to dinner playing with a model train set, or tinkering with electronics instead of paying attention to family. All these things are for personal time, whereas a nice dinner or other gathering of friends is for giving your time to those family and friends.

    Straight up, you either are or you aren't. Chances are that if you've been feeling this way a while and feel happy when little, then you are a little and that I'm afraid is totally hard wired in ... soz

    So, as to coming to terms with it, well that's a matter of learning to accept and love who you are. And that takes some time and effort. Firstly you need to learn as much as you can to get a better understanding of how you feel. Unfortunately no one knows why we're like this, but there's plenty of us who have learnt to accept this special part of us.

    As far as I'm concerned and many others will concur, this is perfectly fine as long as it's not harmful to you or anyone else.

    It is different, yes, but weird??? That's a matter of opinion... unfortunately, the general opinion of society is that it's weird, but that's more a lack of understanding on their part.

    I'd say that it took me a long time to really love who I am, generally, but I've always been happy regressing for as long as I can remember. Honestly, if society were more understanding, I'd quite happily 'little out' when and where I felt like. But as Archie Roni says, we respect where others are at, and don't create uncomfortable situations.... that is something I guess I'll never be happy with ☹️

    cry baby, have fun being happy and little and just love who you are.

    I don't think I would ever get into little space during family time, however it would be nice to have the confidence to at least dress how I want around them and be able to talk about some of my interests like Disney and toys.

    I wish I could say it was quick and easy. It really seems now like it should have been. I think I gained some self-knowledge in the process but I think I could have probably gotten as much from other, less troublesome introspection and I'd have been happier in the meantime.

    I worked a lot of it out on my own. I think the process was accelerated by seeing there were others like myself who were decent, well-balanced people. Making friends with some of those made it easier to see that it wasn't just a burden to bear but something that could be positive for me overall. Look for ways to accentuate the positives in your life with it.

    True it is definitely not an overnight process. However I think you're right, I feel more comfortable about it every day. And the more I actually let my self indulge instead of resisting, the better I feel as well.

    I know how you fell 100%

    I for years sturggled just to accept myself. My parents called me a paedophile and all, once I met someone and told them I've accepted it. Not everyone has someone or can get the courage up to tell someone. I also find that alot of people are quite accepting of it. It doesnt hurt anyone does it? Does being AB/DL hurt yourself? It may at times mentality, but its better and safer then alot of things people engage in. Just look at the good things and learn to accept it, and please just love yourself.
