Growing up I never felt the need to prove anything to anyone but myself. When I became an adult, I still felt only the need to do the things I wanted to do. I have never let what someone else was doing dictate what I was or was not going to do. I’m grateful that I always knew I had a mind of my own, and I used it!
I do believe folks growing up now, have these chips on their shoulder as to what they believe someone owes them. I hate to be the one to break it to you guys, but NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING! Everything that you think might be owed to you, let it go. Chuck it up, and believe that Karma will return anything that wasn’t given at the time you felt you deserved. I find, in my humble opinion, that so many ‘kids’ are in such a rush to do things they believe automatically makes them ‘grown’. Listen, I’ve never considered myself grown as much as I did an adult, but being able to bring dudes into your crib doesn’t make you an adult. Being able to come and go as you please, as doesn’t make you an adult. Being able to problem solve, being able to communicate effectively, being able to apologize for your actions, those are some of the traits that make you an adult.
I can’t tell you how much I was such in a rush to grow up, but now that I am here, I am wishing I was back in middle school. Where my biggest task was completing my homework on time. Guys and Gals, please don’t be in such a rush, Enjoy where are currently in Life, as it goes by so quickly!
