What is the first word that appears on your mind as an association of growing up? For me, it is responsibility. Growing up means, making mistakes and trying to correct them on your own. Nobody will help you. Growing up means paying your bills, buying the groceries on your own. Growing up means, not wanting to socialize with lots of people, but forever wishing you find someone who would share your life in peace and quiet. As you grow up, you realize that there are bigger problems, than heartbreak, friend loss and etc. Growing up hurts. But it is the way we all go through. Some of us, grow up only physically, but some of us becomes mentally grown up and that is the main point. Years are not important. The main thing about growing up is connected to your mind.
