Reminder: Every stage of life is beautiful.
We all have to admit that when we were kids we were all so much fascinated by our adults and we all wanted to be grown-ups too, we were all daydreaming about the days when we will grow up we will do this and that. As a child, we loved the idea of growing up so much that at one point we just hated our lives as a kid. We thought all of the responsibilities are on the kids. We had to wake up early, go to school, give exams, be a good kid with manner, obey parents, we were restricted to some things at home and outside, we were underage to go on cool rides at the carnival, we were not allowed to do anything alone and so many more things. We hated those restrictions and we loved the idea of an adult living on its own. We thought just because adults have finished school they had no more responsibilities, they can wake up at whatever time, sleep whenever, go partying, go out with friends alone and just enjoy everything in life without any supervision or restrictions.
But what our foolish and childish mind does not understand is that even if an adult gets independent it does not mean they do not have responsibilities anymore. As a child, we were ordered to do things because our parents were teaching us how to lead a peacefully delightful life with a good routine. They were preparing us for the hardships of adulthood. Because an adult has to take on these responsibilities by choice and without much guidance, they are on their own. They have to make their own decisions. And trust me, that is very scary. Adulthood is not really as scary as some people portray it. It has its ups and downs but honestly, every stage of life is beautiful.

Surely, adulthood is a tough and very difficult stage of our lives. Let me break it to you, the things we once fantasized about as a kid, we hoped we will do once we are adults are most likely to never happen. Friendships will end, lifelong plans will be canceled, most of the time everything will be unplanned, our loved ones will leave us, some will not be able to pursue their dream careers and so many other things can go wrong. But what I know for sure is that despite it all, life must go on. Everyone has to face these hardships, you are not alone. Have faith and trust in yourself, you can do it. You can move past every hurdle and every obstacle life throws at you because this is the meaning of life, it will test you in every worst way possible o see how strong you are. Never give up. There is always life at the end of the tunnel. Even though all of this is very heartbreaking but it is the truth. These are the things every independent person has to face but if we keep pointing out the negativity, we will end up believing that there is no positivity left on earth. There is so much more than what meets the eye. Life is beautiful in its own way, it has its own ways to teach us all lessons. We all are on our own journeys, we all are experiencing life differently. Life can be cruel to some in childhood whereas some experience life’s cruelty in adulthood. Life is bittersweet. That is just how things are. Wise are the ones who learn to compromise, accept the situation and learn to be flexible according to the situations in their lives. There is only one way to lead a happy life, be positive and never lose hope. Keep on scrolling down to see more of these adults had to say about adulthood in these tweets…

This last tweet has to be the most hilarious and my favorite one about adulthood out of them all. I can totally relate to it and I believe everyone who has siblings can too. The only good thing about getting sick and going to the doctor was getting pampered by our lovely parents, getting yummy snacks on the way back home and teasing our extremely jealous siblings about it. Those golden days are incomparable to any stage of life though. What advice do you have to give to the younger generation? What were your dreams as a child that never came true, and why?
