Is it worth it after all?
Was it worth it restricting myself from so many different opportunities because of my need for approval, not from fellow friends and classmates but from adults? What is this label really worth? I have confined myself in my own little world because of this title. I have declined so many opportunities to have adventures, have fun, be young. I don’t even know what it’s like to be young. I’ve become so accustomed to playing the adult when friends were too busy going crazy and living life. I was always the one sober, ready to take care of others. Where has it really gotten me? I don’t believe becoming successful in life, work, and love means you have to stick to the rules. I’m sure the adults who act all knowing at some point in their past had these crazy experiences too. So I must ask myself what’s stopping me? my fear. I’m not entirely sure what of, maybe regret, maybe judgement, maybe losing the title I worked so hard to keep. It’s something I prided myself in, now I’m left wondering if it was even worth it.
