“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.”
when you need reasons to smile!
When your parents stop worrying about your safety and you start worrying about theirs.
You wish you were a kid.
When you know in your heart that no one is coming to rescue you or save the day. Success or failure, it’s all up to you.
The first time you use the phrase, “When I was your age …”
When you realise you’ve still got heaps to learn. Most 17 year olds know everything. Most 87 year olds think they still have a lot to learn…
You feel ashamed asking money from your parents.
You start keeping check on the money you spend.
When the famous actors/actresses/singers/celebrities are younger than you.
You realize everything your mom ever said is true.
When you fall asleep on the couch and then wake up on the couch.
You stop having nightmares about monsters, and start having nightmares about bills, employment and obligations!
