In many respects, I have the mind of a child.
My independence is limited and my interests are seen as “childish” by the majority of people.
What they don’t realise is I have a degree and am working on another. I have an above-average IQ in most respects and I am more politically savvy than many people of my age.
We have been told so many times that one should not judge a book by its cover.
Why not try putting it into practice?
