    My 18th birthday will be the first birthday

    that I don't want to happen. I thought I would never grow up, now I feel like it's just around the corner. I just hope that I don't grow old. I have had a few wishes come true. Maybe this one will too.

    Because My Parents Are Annoying

    Been feeling this way sometimes lately. To the point that sometimes I think if was a BUTTON in front of me right now which when pressed WOULD KILL ME, I'd press it with little thought. I think my parents are inadequate, 'think' they're good enough to be parents (which I think...

    Says Who?

    Really... who says we have to grow up? There are so many "grown ups" out there who have lost the ability to see anything for what it might be or could be or maybe should be; they only see things as they are. I may be dancing round thirty, but I still wear Chuck Taylors and the...

    I Feel As If Things Are Changing Too Fast

    I'm 15, a sophomore female in a competitive public school. And here's my story: Over the years …. I don’t know. My mommy, who sacrificed her health for her children. The woman who gave birth to me and my brothers as triplets, even though the doctor had advised her to abort...

    I am truly terrified of growing up at this point. The fears have been building up for about two years now and I don't know what to do about it. I'm only sixteen so I have no idea what it's like to live as an adult, which probably just makes it seem more daunting. I got...

    I Want to Play

    I am 34 years old and I the heart of a young girl. I didn't have the childhood that other females had. My childhood was strictly adult-like with 10% play time.  Because of this set back, at times the child in me wants to break out and have fun. I want to giggle, wrestle...

    I Will Always Be A Kid

    I don't mind if you don't believe in God, but I remember that Jesus Christ did say that being a kid is one of the best things you could do. No, I'm not a kid because of that, but a recent experiece really did teach me what He really meant by that. It is a very decent theory that...

    I Wanna Stay Here Forever!

    Everyone just wants to get past their teen and childhood years. They think everything's going to be better. But I can hardly handle this. Let alone taxes, bills, house payments, supporting others. I can barely function on my own.   So no. I don't want to grow up!

    but now it feels like the only emotions I have are fear and sadness. I'm so afraid of becoming homeless one day and having no money. Failing all my exams and my family leaving me. I don't know how this fear built up so much. I am so afraid of growing up that I can't study. I don...

    You Can't Make Me!

    One of the things my grandma used to say to me was "Don't get old." It's kind of hard when you're 28 to act like you're not a grown up, but it comes easily to me. I just don't relate with most adults. Many of them think I'm "immature" or need to "grow up," but why? So I can live...
