Growingup Quotes

Why the hell are we conditioned into the smooth strawberry-and-cream Mother-Goose-world, Alice-in-Wonderland fable, only to be broken on the wheel as we grow older and become aware of ourselves as individuals with a dull responsibility in life?

they say the world
is a hard place, but no one mentions the gut wrenching, soul crushing, heart breaking pain it is to survive growing up. They don’t talk about how childhood is just a word now, or when it became such a fight and you have to be like the ferrous iron that flows through your veins to reach adulthood unscathed. Your first fight, your first heartbreak, your first betrayal, your first identity crisis, your first addiction. People are always talking about how children these days are so very resilient. They shouldn’t have to be. When did we start teaching our children that growing up is having to choose thousands of ways of breaking yourself in two?


That’s the worst of growing up,
and I’m beginning to realize it.
The things you wanted so much
when you were a child don’t
seem half so wonderful to you
when you get them.

you're still growing.
there's room to love yourself again.


Parents always say "What happened to my sweet child who always came crying for help?" Well, I did what you told me to do. I grew up.
I remember when I first joined here about 2 years ago and I was an overdramatic emo with an obsession over Black Veil Brides and I thought that everything revolved around what my friend thought. Now I'm just regular me with two good friends and I don't really care about what the other one thinks. Now whenever I look at my old quotes I want to delete them but I remember that they show me who I was vs who I am now.
i guess one day you just kind of realise that you still have those secrets, but now you're okay with only sharing them with yourself. they aren't trapped in you anymore; they're carefully stored. they're kept.
I know a girl who grew up to fast.
And now all she wants to do is go back.
Who is this girl who gave away her childhood?
Well the girl who decied that she wanted to be mature and confident.
She got her wish and regrets it everyday.
Now she wright here insteds of plays.
In about 6 months I will offically be an adult. 

I'm terrified.

When I was younger I always thought that I could be someone if I tried enough; when I was younger my father said, wear a smile and show respect. When I was younger you never said that when I was older I'd feel helpless.
