Do you ever miss your childhood innocence? This is something I've been thinking about lately. I miss being a kid mostly because I was a better person then, not because I loathe responsibility or can't handle finances. As someone with interest in and a degree in psychology I've always been well aware of my thoughts and feelings. I remember as a kid having close to no opinions and a wide open mind. Overall, I was just innocent.
I remember when I felt angry as a junior in high school thinking "this is what it feels like to be mad?" I don't think I had ever felt real anger before then. I was easy-going, laid back, and happy all of the time. Now suddenly I have all these opinions. Opinionated people would drive me insane (still do to some extent) just a few short years ago and I don't want to be one of them. I feel myself internally judging people and forgetting to give them the benefit of the doubt like I used to. Where along the lines did this change? I'm convinced it's a part of growing up and I'm not doing anything wrong. I guess this post is my way of admitting to it and the next step is change. From now on, I'm going to channel my inner and somewhat wiser 14-year-old self.
Sorry if this topic was heavier than you would've liked for a Monday morning. Feel free to just skim over all that mumbo jumbo and take a peek at the "comfy chic" look above ;)
