I hate adulting! Growing-up Sucks!
Yes, sure, sometimes it’s cool, but sometimes it just sucks!
Yes, it’s not the funnest thing ever, but you must learn to embrace it because saying ‘it sucks’ isn’t going to make you younger; you’re always going to be growing-up.
So, you might as well accept it and move on, and start to create a great life for yourself.
. . .
In high school, we think we know exactly what we want to do when we graduate, but once we graduate college, we realize we still really have no idea what we’re doing with our life. We just start winging it and waiting for something big to happen that will distract us from the fact that we’re growing up and everything is changing.
~No one teaches you what’s waiting for you in the real world!~
We aren’t innocent little children anymore, with our whole life ahead of us.
We are responsible for every decision we make for our future self. We have to seriously think about our future before making any decision.
Our relationship with our parents is changing. We don’t think we need them, but, deep down, we know we will always need them. But, we have to grow up because being an adult, society wants us to think about so many things without anyone to influence our decisions.
When we’re young, all we want to do is be older so we can be free to make our own decisions, but once we are adults, we understand what it really means; we don’t want to make any big decisions because it’s scary to have our whole future in our own hands; if we make just ONE mistake, it’s literally ALL our own fault (there’s no one to blame).
. . .
Anyways, I’m not here to make you afraid of growing up and adulting (I know it’s scary enough); I’m here to tell you that:
Instead, of being scared and saying that growing-up sucks, you should learn to accept it, and learn who you are and what you really want. So, when you do make big life decisions, you are sure about them because you know it’s what you really want.\
I know it can be a very difficult task to figure out what you really want, but once you start winging it and trying new, different and scary things, you will find yourself very quickly and your life will become what you imagined as a child.
So, next time you find yourself saying: “growing-up sucks” or “I hate adulting” or “I wish I could be a kid again” or “this is a lot of work” (all those sentences are valid feelings); remember that saying those things is only making it worse for yourself.
Instead, you should work on discovering who you are and what you really want in life! Start learning how to make your kid dreams come true as an adult, because…
…Once the adult you makes one of your childish dreams come true, you will start loving yourself and your life as an adult!
One suggestion that I have for discovering yourself & what you want, is; to take a trip abroad because I’ve found that it’s the only sure way to find yourself.
Finding yourself in another country & culture will really show you what you really want for the rest of your life.
It will open your eyes to so much you didn’t know about yourself (& the world around you, which is a bonus).
Thanks for reading!
I hope this post inspired you to find yourself and your true happiness in adult life! Remember:
~Do what makes YOU happy!~
~Make sure that you’re living YOUR life, and not someone else’s!~
