There are many different ways to think about growing up but when I came across this quote I was struck by how sad yet true this is.
Growing up for some reason has been one of the hardest things I have had to do. Not that I struggle to be mature of to see things in a more adult way ,for me it is hard because it is the world’s way of asking me to change my heart.I struggle to let the world shred up my heart like this. I struggle to believe that the world is really as cruel as we say it is, and at other times that it isn’t as cruel as I believe it to be.Children have a way of seen danger where there is none and not seeing danger where it is… And I guess I am still like that a lot.We don’t really grow up. Our bodies just grow,expands, and become something they once were not. Meanwhile our out hearts get all torn into shreds and we have to sit around and deal with it like everything is going to be okay. Kid: don’t be so eager to grow up. Adults: be child like as often as possible and don’t forget to enjoy life like a kid.
