Most of the time I feel like I’m still pretending.

I have a great job, an amazing fiance, a wonderful family and friends, and all of my ducks actually seem to be in a row.

But yet I’m still scared.

There is a legitimate term for Peter Pan Syndrome. It’s called:

Puer aeternus is Latin for eternal boy, used in mythology to designate a child-god who is forever young; psychologically it is an older man whose emotional life has remained at an adolescent level. The puer typically leads a provisional life, due to the fear of being caught in a situation from which it might not be possible to escape. He covets independence and freedom, chafes at boundaries and limits, and tends to find any restriction intolerable.

So… yeah there’s that and the fact that there isn’t terminology for a girl kinda sucks, but whateves.

Let’s drink.
