Topic #89 When did you realise you were an adult?
I think I realised I was growing up when birthdays and Christmas stopped being quite so exciting and I actually enjoyed watching other people receiving presents, more than I enjoyed opening them. It was the sudden realisation that the day, while different, didn’t feel that much more unusual than any other. It was a really sad realisation, the sense that the overwhelming joy and excitement I used to have as a child was gone, in a way forever. I miss that.
I realised I was an adult when the things I worried about were bigger than school work, exams and friends. The problems got bigger and weren’t as easy to solve. Life seemed a lot simpler when I was a child. I miss that too!
