Grow up

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 18:14 -- cgaddam

All my life I've been told "grow up."

But what does that mean?

Is it when you rely on yourself solely?

No family, no friends?

Is it when they stop calling you a cry baby?

Is it when you don't ask for help anymore?

Is it when you spend most of your days alone?

Turns out, growing up isn't any of those things.

Growing up is correcting your mistakes,

Growing up is finally giving back to those who helped you,

Growing up is transforming into who you want to be,

Growing up is valuing your opinion of yourself over others

Growing up is change.

My family
Our world
