When does the time come when we wake up one day and feel like an adult..
I remember living at home and I used to pretty much live within the four walls of my bedroom. My mum used to call me horizontal Hetti as I was always lying down watching TV in bed. I would never get up and do anything unless I was going out because I had too.
I thought maybe once I left college, left home and started working full time I would feel grown up. But it doesn’t feel like it’s got to that point yet.
I still have mood swings and can throw tantrums and sometimes I just want to build a den and hide there instead of going to work.
But some people never feel grown up. I guess the responsibilities of having kids or getting married can make a big difference but who knows?
I know many people in there 40’s/50’s plus who are much more immature than I am, and act like massive kids. And it’s great! They are just being themselves and aren’t worried about fitting in with society’s expectations of behaviour.
I still feel very young but that can change depending on who I am with at the time.
I wonder if we ever feel ‘grown up’..
