Adulthood


I think I have finally figured out what being an adult entails.

- Knowing the right things to do and say at the right time.
- Taking on greater duties and being responsible for them
- Operating in a world that will not hesitate to banish you

Being an adult is a scary full-time job.

Perhaps that's why I never understood why children cannot wait to grow up. I cannot understand why in the midst of all that youthfulness, they want to start experiencing the bitterness that maturity can entail.  

Time and time again, adults have warned us of the unpleasantness in life. Yet, as children, we fail to listen. Regret only appears when the right time has abandoned us.
