What is growing up?
Is it reaching a certain level of societal adulthood in which you manage life’s responsibilities?
Is it learning from your mistakes?
Is it gaining a deeper level and understanding of spirituality?
Whatever it is, I still have not grown up!
I was told this recently, and through deep introspection, I have come to the realization that its true.
I make silly financial and life changing mistakes, I frequently act without thinking, and the list goes on. Whatever growing up is, this individual is still a very far way from reaching the crossing line. My financial freedom is still a figment of my imagination, despite having experience running a business. I have just barely opened up to the endless possibilities of spiritual enlightenment, and I still have not mastered how to drive a car or write an article.
There is so much growing up left for me to do, and whatever that threshold is, I do not think I am anywhere near it. Despite being 25 going on to 26, and having a lot of experiences that most people live their whole lives for, my actions sometimes replicate that of a 16 year old.
Am I too sheltered? Is it fear of responsibility? Is it fear of success?…These are questions I often ask myself.
Whatever growing up is, I am apparently a slow learner, and that is okay. But, maybe I need to pick up the pace, because while I take my time growing up, life is running laps around me.
Are you grown up?
