“What are your thoughts on adulthood? What do you want to be when you grow up? Are you scared of being an adult? Have you been forced to be the adult in a relationship? Do you have an adult child who won’t grow up? Are you glad to finally be an adult? What do you think?”
First off, I’m very happy to be participating in my first Sunday Scribblings here at InkyBlots.
Adulthood has been weird for me. I was forced to be an adult with the events of my parents’ marriage. It’s not what you’re thinking, but I don’t care to go into it. Anywho, I learned at an early age that my biological age was to be used to my advantage. I learned that I needed to enjoy the time I had to play, watch television, enjoy what I could without having a job, etc.
A weird thing for a kid to know, but I knew it…
Now that I’m technically an adult, my opinion hasn’t changed much. ‘Adulthood’ is just a label and we should take advantage of whatever is available given our biological age.
I guess I have seen too many children ‘grow up’ too early and too many adults who act like children. Just like maturity, true adulthood is not a given; it’s simply a label we assign that, more often than not, never really fits anyway.
That being said, my adulthood has shaped up to being something infinitely more wonderful and amazing than I ever could have imagined.
I’m loving every minute. Except the bill-paying ones…
