What happens in adulthood?
What changes? Where did curiosity we once had as kids travel to? Why all the new found pompousness and protocols?
"Oh you must never buzz my phone at 12 midnight or you can't talk to me without calling me "sir"
Where is the disconnect really? Where is the once curious kid, that was always asking seemingly silly yet the most intriguing questions like; "why is the sky blue" or "how did i come to life" or "how did water enter the coconut" or "where is steem from" or "how did rain happen" ?
Where is the humble kid who wants to listen or that kid who knows nothing but who can still read the contours on your face to know if you are angry or sad?
Where is that kid who forgives like crazy, without knowing what forgiveness is?
Where is that kid who knows how to let go and fully trust someone, without fears or much caution?
Where is that kid who can give way to tears without shame and afford you a giggle, so as to also put a smile on your own face.
Where is that kid who knows how to hug so tight and who relishes holding your finger like it is one electric high tension wire!
Did they disappear into adulthood? Is the world's definition of adulthood; "a trap"?
Here are 10 unMEAN sTWEETs On "Is Adulthood A Trap?"
1. @kyriacos developed these words below:
As humans grow older build more and more limitations due to the fact we owe to obey some rules. This results to limited creativity and a narrow mind.
2. @paradise-found leaves us with these paradisic words:
3. @paleotreats treats us to these gentle words:
Got to constantly question the micro decisions we face every day regarding whether or not to "grow up". Aim for the curious, the unexplored, keep that joy of living alive, and remember, every minute counts!
4. @woleybabz left this comment:
Great post Marly and a good advice to make conscious effort to unlock the 'child' inside us and not be so serious everytime letting the responsibilities of adulthood weigh us down
5. @silviabeneforti spoke as an artist in her comment here:
"Don't grow up, it's a trap!" I agree! My grandmother said me "goditela ora che sei piccino" (means " Enjoy everything now that you're a child"). Fortunately, I chose to be an artist and so I can feel me a child every time I want (If I don't think to the bills that I have to pay) :D
6. @andrewdaines leave us with a book of words in this comment:
As we move though this turbulent life we are systematically programmed into robotic entities. This is what I love about children that have not been indoctrinated yet. They simply just live every day to the fullest. Through the years I tried to give my children a different world view. If you have teenagers or pre-teens an amazing book to get them thinking outside the box is "The Teenage Liberation Handbook".
7: @shayne speaks with experience in this comment:
Children have a view of the world that is pure and exciting. Becoming a parent, in part, is an opportunity to experience that purity from a different angle.
8. @celsius100 has this, to say about children:
9. @arsenal49 had these thoughts some hours ago:
I was thinking about this earlier: That a child is like watching Buddha. They are born as enlightents beings, and then build walls as you wrote. Walls also build inside our heads, but that are merely illusions. I was feeling quite anxious the other day and I said to myself: What would a child do/think of this situation. I felt better immediately. Thanks for sharing!
Little kid still live in each of us and sometimes it is great to let it out. Sometimes it is great to feel yourself a kid again...
