With the blog in its very early stages at this point, I figure now is a good time to talk about what being “little” means to me.
Littles, Littlespace, Age Regression, CG/l… there’s a lot of terms and words out there to try to wrap your head around if you’re just coming into this world or self identification. And all that terminology can be pretty intimidating! And what definitions you find might just confuse you.
So, let me try to get through what being “Little” means to me.
Being Little represents my best self. Being Little is just a way I describe who I am basically all the time, but it’s also a way to describe my most ideal self. It’s an open, trusting way of looking at the world through a lens of wonder, innocence, and true appreciation for things that may otherwise read as insignificant.
Being Little means I enjoy things not typically seen as “adult.” But this isn’t as deviant as it might at first seem. Many adults collect toys or other kid things. Tons of adults read young adult fiction or enjoy tv shows meant for children. Adults make up the majority of video game consumers.
Being Little is an embracing of that. It means I adore my plushies, and I delight in watching cartoons and eating sugary cereals. It means I utilize comfort and self care tactics that work for me, even if they “should have been left in my childhood.”
Being Little is my best me. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
