Nobody told us life will be so complicated.

We grow up in safe bubbles, thinking about that new toy everybody is talking about or playing non-stop with the ones we already have, refusing to go to bed when needed, complaining about not getting what we wanted.
Then, one day, it happens; slowly - in some cases, suddenly - in others. We start catching glimpses of the real world and little by little, they start cracking our bubble. We learn that the Univers does not spin around how many toys we possess and that the people we thought we knew are just an illusion of what they truly are. Everything changes and we start to doubt about even the pettiest things we once believed in. We realise how superficial we lived and that we took everything that was given to us for granted.
Eventually, we understand that life is more complex than we can comprehend.
