I believe being an adult should never involve a conscious effort. It should just be – what has resulted from life’s experiences and is thus the resulting factor merely visible in everyday decisions , never its existence heightened . I’m fearing societal structures have funnelled the necessity of ‘the adult’ onto life itself. I think the pivotal age and moment at which I am in life have forced me to face this debate. What I fear could be the most damaging, since its plague would run deeply internal, is when an individual that has been denied childhood and its frivolities, becomes, ‘of Age’.
Won’t they be, and Arent we all, simply behaving like an adult?
