Being an adult isn’t always easy. In fact, most of the time, adults have to face challenges and overcome obstacles. Adults have to face difficulties and find solutions to their problems daily. This is why sometimes, adults wished they could be like little children again. It is so wonderful to be a child and never have to worry about anything!
As a child, you don’t have to worry about working hard in order to pay your bills and to put food on the table. You can sleep longer, play with your friends and you have a vivid imagination and still believe in Santa Claus. It’s great to be a child as you have no responsibilities; you have a lot of free time and get to enjoy the things you love most. Your parents are responsible for you and take care of your every need so that you don’t have anything to worry about and thus enjoy your childhood days.
Most adults therefore wished they could be like little children again since they miss these days when there was nothing to worry about. Where are the sunny mornings when we used to play in the streets without sorrow? Where are the nights when our parents used to read us good night stories? These days seem so far away!
When we were little, we didn’t have to think about pain, about relationships, about diseases or death. Everything seemed so easy. We were losing ourselves in the whirlwind of our dreams. Now everything has changed and we have to find a way out of the labyrinth, take decisions and deal with the consequences. When did we stop chasing after the wind? Where is the time when we believed in fairy tales? We didn’t even realize how fast our childhood was over. We grew up so fast that we didn’t have the time to look back or to enjoy these precious moments that left a sweet taste on our lips.
Adulthood sometimes seems to be a trip to No where’s land. It’s like a journey without destination and it might take you some time until you find out where your ship should be sailing to. Life as an adult is so unpredictable but at the same time so exciting. There are ups and downs and there are days when you don’t even want to wake up! Being an adult means having to take decisions, to take responsibility and to wake up every morning not knowing what this new day may bring forth. There are days when you ask yourself if everything is worth the effort, but there are also days when you realize that there’s nothing better than breathing the fresh air of adulthood. Even though many rainy days will come, the sun will surely show his shiny face again.
It is nice to think about the times when we were little and had no sorrows, but we must not forget that being an adult also means to have the opportunity to fall in love, to find out what true love means, to laugh at the world and to embrace happiness as well as pain, since both are part of the adult life. We must not take for granted that we have the chance to decide what we want in life, who we want to become and where and how we want to spend every day of our lives. These are things that we couldn’t put into practice when we were little. Therefore, we should be happy that we are adults and have the opportunity to create our lives the way we want!
