I am disadvantaged due to my immature looks, please help?
Q: I am 28 years old but I have an immature looking face. I look as if I am only 18-19 years old. I am facing problems due to this. I have a good qualification and experience but unable to get a responsible job because of the way I look. They think I cannot handle the responsibility or my subordinates won't obey my orders because I look so young. I am also not getting married due to this. People think I am too young for marriage. Kindly give me a solution for my problem?
A:I have read with interest your predicament and can understand what you are going through. My only comment to you would be - do the best you can with what you have, For if you cannot change something, learn that there are ways around it. For instance, you might want to convince your bosses that you are the right person for the job, if you show authority in other methods. You may want to work on your voice modulation, that can make up for your baby-face appearance. Or you might like to take on a task and show that it can be done to the best of your capacity, within the stipulated time or work on your leadership and team skills. Work on other aspects that are within your reach. And look at brighter side, you are at a an advantage that you look younger for your age whilst more than half the population are worried about the opposite.
