So, for years, I’ve slipped into a childlike mindset when stressed, or sometimes involuntarily. I feel like I’m faking it, because I don’t act like other littles a see. I know it’s probably irrational, but am I really agere, or just an odd person?

We're sorry to hear that you're having some turmoil. We hope that you can find the answers to make you feel at ease in the community!

Whether or not you're a Little can only be determined by yourself – only you (or qualified therapists when it comes to other mental health concerns, though not so much regression) can know your the way you think and feel, and only you answer questions regarding personality truthfully.

See: How do I know if I'm a little?

Word of advice, though. From our observations of the community over a decade, it's not rare to see and hear people talking up their regressive experiences. There’s a lot of online-only roleplay and fantasy, very little acknowledgement that it’s fantasy talk or roleplay, and a lot of focus on being a character rather that a fluid, fluctuating adult who experiences regression.
Your regression shouldn't have to involve other people's regressions, so you shouldn't worry about your experiences differing. There’s no need to compare yourself to find validation. You are who you are.
