– When will I grow up?
Kids ask that question often and it might be hard to give a proper answer without making yourself look stupid. But here are a few ideas.
You could say that you grow up when you discover that you never get what you want by simply wanting it. That also applies in cases when you want that thing truly, from the bottom of your pure heart. It is just not enough. It also takes money and time.
You grow up when you realize that fairy tales are a lie. And by knowing that the end may be bad you begin to fear it.
You grow up when you discover that you can’t change anything and you just don’t matter.
I think that sums it up well enough, no?
