Being a grown up.

Posted January 16th, 2013 at 9:52 PM by colours

Just wondering, for those of you who are living the life and responsibilities and expectations of an adult(like paying bills, or possibly living independently, getting things on your own, etc) do you enjoy this independence? I mean, I'm just curious is all. I know that, I was discussing this with a good friend of mine IRL, and we kind of miss being kids again, back when things were significantly easier and we didn't really have as much responsibility.

Though I suppose if we were younger, we couldn't really get a job. .-.; Without a job, there's not much money to be made so...I suppose there's good sides to being an adult?

What are your thoughts, guys? If you had a chance, would you go back and live your childhood years again?

    I think I might relive my childhood. Hopefully it would be a better one this time around and I'd have more friends, be better at school and other stuff. I just wish I could go back to a time like that where I could be carefree and not worry about everything.

    If I could relive my childhood differently with all the knowledge I have now, I would. Life seemed simpler back then and armed with knowledge I have now, there are a lot of thing I'd do a bit differently.

    But as for responsibilities of adulthood, it has it's ups and downs. Working to make enough to eat and pay rent is strenuous, but I get a strong sense of responsibility and pride when I'm able to do it myself...and I feel deep shame and inadequacy whenever I can't and need to ask my parents for some help.

    However, when I was able to drive and buy things on my own, I loved it. It gave me a great sense of freedom that I honestly wouldn't trade or anything. Hell, since I've turned 21, being able to buy alcohol and drink responsibly (especially drinking responsibly) feels like a great freedom.

    My childhood was not the best. I would relive it but only if I got to stay with my father instead of mum.

    I do enjoy being an adult and having my own place, being married and having a baby, but I really hate bills.

    Being an adult is awesome! Being a kid was nice in that you don't have to care about anything and can just be a total mess with no consequences or whatever but honestly, I much prefer surviving in the real world, even if it is a lot harder work. Makes you feel like you've got somewhere in life.

    I do enjoy the independence to a certain degree, but yeah I'd definitely go back to the dependent days o.o

    I do, but I wouldn't go back. I enjoy my independence and being in charge of my own things and having my own rules. I would, though, have taken advantage of the freedom I had when I was younger if I could ever go back.

    I'd do things differently if I lived my childhood. I wouldn't want to just repeat it. Being responsible is tiring, but I get to make my own decisions about most things and when I do good I can be happy with myself. But I don't mind being responsible, I just wish I had more time for myself. That's really the one drawback to being an adult that I can think of.
