We all find ourselves feeling nostalgic over our childhood at one point or another. Maybe we treasure the memories of being young and carefree. Maybe we miss the bygone era of a simpler decade. Or maybe we just miss not having to get up in the morning and go to work.
However often you find yourself looking back, you can’t deny that as time goes on, you change with it. The things that were important to you in your childhood aren’t important at all anymore. Now, you have all sorts of new focuses…some of which might have confused your younger self!
When it comes to getting older, all of us have different experiences. But some things are universal — or at least, almost. We are all more tired, more cynical, and who knew you could hurt your neck by “sleeping on it wrong”?
But there are good things about getting older, too. For one thing, you probably no longer care nearly as much what people think of you. These days, you wouldn’t be trying as hard to impress Sean from ninth grade.
Whether you like getting older or hate it, you can’t deny that it’s a whole new adventure.
It’s never fun when people make a subtle commentary on your appearance. It’s even worse when that commentary has something to do with your age. That little caveat stings, especially when it came from your mom’s friend Sharon who’s just SO judgemental.
