I Think I Will Never Grow Up

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 202 People

    Grown Up?

    I do feel like I am maybe pretending to be a grown up. People will say things to suggest I am grown up, because I have a career and car and am trying to buy a house, but it all feels a little like dress ups and someone will find me out soon. You have this idea of when you will...

    Still A Child

    Despite being 22 going on 23, I'm still pretty much a child. Either we're silly or just plain stubborn, I believe that we are all still children and will never grow up. Age has nothing to do with "growing" up.

    Promised To Myself...

    Never gonna let the child in me to die! And never gonna let all the rush in the world.. .....And all the rush in life to make me forget, how to be a playful, fun loving and careless person! =) That's my theory for my "happily ever after"! =)

    I Know I'll Never Grow Up.

    Why should I? Where's the fun in that? In relative terms we are here for such a short space of time, why waste it by being too serious about life, the world and everything. I prefer to be childlike and laugh my way through it, rather than take it all too seriously. I still enjoy...

    I Will Never Grow Up

    everything in my life came late..........I was always behind and everyone around me was always steps ahead. I was the oldest in my class but I looked like the youngest I was 14 and while I was still playing with barbies all the girs in my class were busy with guys make...

    People sometimes tell me to grow up

    and be more serious. Even my mother tells me that. While I need to work on my ability to accept responsibility, I don't think I will ever stop being fascinated by little things, thinking about silly ideas, making lame puns, and sometimes releasing stress by acting like a...

    I'll Always Be a Kid At Heart

    There's nothing I like more than 'playing pretend'. After that comes tea parties, and dress-up. Reality sucks. Reality really really sucks. Being a kid doesn't. It's about the only thing my mom accepts about me, and it is so nice to go to American Girl place with my little...

    Contentment

    So... I'm only 18, but I really don't think I'll ever grow up. Now, I don't find this to be a bad thing. Being happy this way, to me, is better than being unhappy any other way. I like to wonder things. Imagine. I'm a little on the naive side, but thats okay too. I...

    I Thought I Was A Grown Up For Awhile...

    While I was knee deep in parenting for awhile I did try to grow up. Then life slapped me upside the head. Now I am just going to be me as much as possible. I need to spend time laughing and playing and hanging out outside everyday. I can't take myself too seriously because I am a...

    But that's not bad.They tell me I live in a

    fairy tale.Does that mean I need to get out of it into the "real world", or just that they're jealous that they're not in one? I once read somewhere that we live our entire lives in the world in our heads.And the one I've been in so far has kept me safe, sound and very much...

    Immaturity...

    I think I'll never grow up because everyone treats me like a child.They just look down on me and I'll end up throwing a tantrum afterwards. Still, I'm just a child to the heart.I'm still a kid mentally, maybe it's better to pout and get what I want.will I ever grow up??

    Curiosity Of A Child

    I am an adult, but I think a part of me will never grow up. I have in me, an infinite curiosity of a child about life, an endless desires to color this world with traces of innocent joy. I am surprised with what I can do and what this life is capable of making me to smile again...
