everybody is growing up.
i never thought i’d come to a point in my life where everyone was so free. it’s so weird. i forget what it was like to not be allowed to do something. to not be allowed to stay out. to not be given extra money for lunch. but i always had plenty of money for lunch.
i don’t remember the feeling of anger and frustration directed towards my parents when they said no.
i can’t seem to relive those feelings and the thoughts that crossed my mind. those issues all seem so trivial now. does that even happen anymore?
maybe it would be different if i were still living with them. maybe i’d be a different person. weaker? i can’t really tell.
to be honest, i don’t think i’ve grown all that much as a person. i remain as stubborn and as introverted and extroverted as i’ve always been. even going through all “most important” things in my life haven’t been that big a deal. hsc, uni, moving, work… stuff.
maybe i’ve just been grown up all along.
