Now you understand why Peter Pan didn’t want to grow up

Isn’t it funny how when we were little all we wanted to do was grow up? We couldn’t wait to get older, to have more privileges and to have more freedom. But what we didn’t understand when we were kids was the fact that privileges and freedom weren’t the only things that come along with growing up.

As we grow up, the innocence we once had as children slowly slips away; it is slowly stripped off us. Things aren’t as great as we’d thought it’d be. We’re finally able to see the reality of things. And now that that we’re older, all we want to do is to be young again. We want to have no worries, to have no troubles, and to have no stress.

  1. I wrote something similar to that on my latest blog post! 🙂 It’s sad how wastefully we throw away our childhood in hopes of being treated like an adult. Yet, when we’re treated that way, we long for the innocence we were able to have as kids.
