And then, when you do, you wish you could go back to just playing. Never growing up. Sure, there are some perks to being an adult, but a lot of responsibilities as well. Maybe even more than the perks.
(At least for those who are fortunate enough to have had a childhood. Some are forced to grow up as soon as they are able to walk and talk. Some do not even have the chance to grow up.)
Reality can be harsh.
Sometimes I think it is better to ignore it and continue to pretend/convince yourself you are happy and just dream.
