    The hardest thing about growing up is that everyone is always telling you things will be worse when you’re an adult. That’s not true! Adults get to make their own decisions, leave if they don’t like something, and have chocolate milk if they are willing to accept the pimples! Adults are done with raging hormones (except that one day a month) and don’t have suicidal thoughts every time they are asked to do the dishes. Adults don’t get stopped by the cops for going to the corner store to buy milk at off hours. They go to college where they can skip classes if they want to be stupid and waste their money, without getting locked in an “in-school detention center” like a zoo animal. In short, adults are free to make the mistakes of their choice, and usually manage to survive them.

    In my memory, every time I got upset as a kid or teen, my parents told me I didn’t know how good I had it, because it was going to get a lot worse when I was grown up. There were times I felt I didn’t want to live to adulthood if it was going to be worse.

    Actually the hardest thing about growing up is hormones. So every time I meet a young teen, the first bit of wisdom I give them is that they are going to feel a million times better when they grow up.

    I think one of the hardest things I can think of is when you’re a child, you always want to be older and when your older you still want to be older. You just seem to wish time away. So I think for me the hard part of gowning up was not enjoying what I was doing because I was always “wishing” for something else.

    I think one of the hardest things is feeling like you fit in. Whether it’s with a group of friends, your family, or just in general. Having that feeling that you don’t belong sucks.

  8. Wanting to be independent and feeling like you can handle everything when, in reality, you still need your parents.

    And the sad realization that your parents really did know best.
