Be an Adult


When we were kids all we wanted to do was be adults. Now as we become adults we want nothing more than to live as kids again. 

I don’t want to be a kid. I want to be an adult! Because as an adult I can think for myself. Yes, it sucks sometimes. Yes, I have to work to support myself. Yes, I have to deal with the consequences of my actions. Yes, I have to do things that I don’t want to do. 

I do those things so that when I get home at the end of the day I feel proud of what I’ve done. I do those things because I want to be an adult, not a large child. I do those things because I am responsible and forging m
y path. 

I am tired of seeing shirts and post about “I don’t want to adult today” or “I want to be a mermaid”. STOP SLACKING! I understand not wanting to do something, but that’s what makes you an adult. YOU DO IT ANYWAY! Stop demanding respect and for people to view you as an adult, and just prove that you are one. Wake up before 9am, learn how to cook something more than ramen, go to class and work, do something with your life. Forge your path no matter what that may be. That doesn’t mean your path is laying in bed and watching Netflix because your parents pay rent. it means do something with your life. When you talk about what you’re doing in life you should be proud of it, if you shy away from questions about your life then you aren’t living it fully or correctly.

Not all hope is lost though, life is about learning how to be an adult and crossing each bridge as you come to it. Most importantly learn all that you can in any situation. Learn from your mistakes, learn how to shake a hand and learn how to handle life to the best of your ability each day. Never be afraid to say “you’re sorry” or “I love you”.
