I'm 20 years old.
I had hid my little self from my family for a couple years now till my Mom found a instagram account that I made specifically for me to express my little self. She does not get it and never will I don't think. She was creeped out and embarrassed.
So I told her that I grew out of it and all but to be honest, I haven't. Had to throw away my paci so she wouldn't think i'm still a little.
Anyway, I rather hide it from everyone in my family and friends because I don't think a lot of them will get it sadly.
