I Don't Want to Grow Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 435 People

    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!

    Mum, dad, remember that time it said I wanted

    to grow up? Yea, I take it all back. I mean growing up definitely has it's perks, especially since I'm the eldest in my family but I'm starting year 12 next year and then it's university from there on. Hell I don't even know what I want to do yet and everyone kinda seems to have...

    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...

    Innocent

    I'm not the kind of person to act mature, I love being a kid even if I am 16:) I think I'm afraid to grow up because I know things will hurt more wen ur a grown up. Its scary having to think tht u will need a job and live on ur own. I remember telling my mom tht I would live with...

    I know it's a naive wish,

    but I don't want to be an adult. Honestly, I don't know what I want to be. My sister wanted to drive so much, she counted down the days, but I don't want to. I just want to be a kid. It feels like my life is going by so fast, I can't remember most of it and I don't have those...

    Being An Adult Is Crap

    i miss those days when i would just play with toys and visit the playground. being 20, i realised that growing means that you have to have love and money and do this and that, so i couldnt be stuffed pursuing these things. i would like to age slowly even tough i am mistaken for...

    The Death Of Fun

    At one stage of my life I used to enjoy writing short stories and drawing cartoons. Stories were especially fun because the thrill of thinking up of an interesting story made my spine tingle. It made me think: "Nobody has ever thought of that before! It's completely new!" But the...

    When I joined EP I was 21

    and now for some reason my new "age range" of 22-25 makes me feel weird when it was just 18-21 for so long now! I don't know, it just kind of makes it look as though I grew like, 5 years older all at once when it was only 1 year! I'm not trying to whine or complain that I'm OLD...

    A Job?!

    I feel rushed. I look back at what I'm good at, and I realize what I truly was good at... school. A profession that matches is the trickiest thing to come up with. "Teacher," the tell me to be. If it was so easy. That I would be able to quickly get it down. I only wish to...

    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 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...

    In a couple of days, it'll be my 21st birthday.

    Woo. Can't you tell I'm excited? Is it scary how much someone can change in a matter of years? How you're perspective did a complete 180? I'm thinking how strange, how different I was 10 years ago. Hell, even 5 years ago. Surely, this happens to a lot of people...right? 10...

    Terrified

    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 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...

    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...
