Hey, hello, hi! In this Ranting Teen Talks segment, I discuss the importance of skipping the "I'm only (insert age), so please don't judge but..." response, to JUST SAYING what you need to say. By including your age in a situation where it is not needed, you are promoting some consequences. For example:
1. YOU'RE GIVING OFF PERSONAL INFORMATION!!! BE CAUTIOUS AND THINK WISELY ABOUT YOUR DECISIONS.
2. You're giving the impression that you are begging for attention, which people are going to react by not taking your response seriously.
3. It may seem as though you are warning others that you are incapable of receiving the direct truth and must have "sugar-coded" replies.
4. It is possible that you feel you lack some sort of quality, so you (figuratively) "hide" behind something like your age to justify yourself. This could mean being scared of someone's opinion, or simply denying the power of your speech because of your age.
These are all pointers which I cover in episode 19, 'JUST SAY IT!' Stop using your age as a shield, and start saying what you need to say. -As long as you're being respectful, kind, and considerate of course!
I love you, my Bumblebees,
