While time can stand still for years at a time for many people, it has to happen eventually. Growing up, maturing, is a part of life, no matter how long we avoid it. It’s an odd act that sometimes leaves us all alone, taken away from those we once loved.
There is still hope. We can move on to who we’re supposed to be while staying with those we care about. Those who refuse to grow, who want to act like children forever hold us back, making it even harder for us to mature into the wonderful person we can be.
Maturing isn’t about losing who we are. It’s about understanding and willingness to change. As we look forward into that future, we find ourselves looking back, remembering the times we had. Each of us has done stupid things in our past. What’s important is the fact that we’re still alive to regret and move past it all.
