Let's Chat | Growing Up

When I first started this blog, I would post something chatty once a week where I would discuss random things with you guys, whether they be topics of inspiration, confidence or general chit chat, and I thought I would bring that back because I do really enjoy making them and I think they are one of my favourite posts to create. Today I'm going to talk to you about the ever confusing topic of 'growing up'

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always been confused about the concept of growing up and what it actually meant. Up to the age of around 15, growing up seemed to be something that would one day just happen, and you would suddenly know how to act, and make important decisions. I don't know if it was just me but I would look at adults and think that they were in this whole new section of life where they were completely separate to teens and they no longer saw things the way people younger did. It was in my mid-teens where I began to realise that it just doesn't work like that and there isn't a moment where it all just clicks and you feel grown up all of a sudden - even now that I'm 20 I still feel like I'm 16 and I have no idea where the years have gone. 

Don't you think it's weird how we are all expected to act a certain way when we get to a certain age? because I don't think that as a person I am any different to who I was a few years ago,  I know I'm at uni now, but I mean really as a person deep down I don't think I'm any different. I've realised that we just all learn things along the way and do the best we can with what is put in front of us, nothing happens to make us prepared for everything that may come our way, that's why I try to stay positive and pick myself up when I mess up at something, because we don't come with a manual on life, and sometimes we just don't know what we're doing.  The way that we see the world now may still be the same as we do when we're 40, regardless that we'll probably have experienced a lot more and may have better understandings of things than we do now, but I hope that I will never let my age stop me from doing the things I love just because I am expected to act a certain way. I mean I'm not saying I'll still be going to the club with my friends when I'm 40, but I can guarantee I'd still scream as loudly if I met DiCaprio as I would now, and I will probably love going out for dinner with friends and buying new dresses just as much as I do now.

I think the little things inside you that make you who you are, never really change. But those are just my thoughts and I know everyone has different views on growing up, what are yours?
