Everyone Grows UP

When growing up things happen. " In general, being grown up indicates that you’ve evolved into a new stage in your life where you take your career, life and future more seriously, or at the very least, you have more concern for your future needs and are no longer as easily persuaded by shallow thrills and aimless meandering." (http://www.wikihow.com/Know-when-You-Are-Grown-Up) In the story That Was Then This is Now the author S.E Hinton gives an example of change when you grow up like how Mark and Bryon were not friends anymore, Bryon got better in school, Bryon not loving Cathy as he did before, and him not hating Angela as much as he thought. "Unfamiliar emotions. Puberty usually brings a whole new set of emotions you may have never felt before. For instance, when you were little, you probably didn't have romantic feelings�but now you're starting to think differently (and romantically!), a lot more. Hey, it happens. That's part of growing up."(http://pbskids.org/itsmylife/body/puberty/article6.html) She shows how you also have to make different dicisions to impact your life. Your feelings may differ when these changes occur like the way you feel, what you believe, and more. Personally i agree with her. I also feel and even experienced change in my life while growing up because I'm still going through it. "If you still believe wholeheartedly in exactly what you believed in five, seven or ten years ago, then you aren’t paying attention. Unless you’re one of the lucky few who’ve figured it all out from the start – in that case, god bless." (http://thereformedbroker.com/2014/01/02/grow-up-change-your-mind/) I understand how feelings may change towards many different things and how you may start to believe differently about things. I feel this means your maturing and realizing there's more to life than you thought. The best thing to do with different changes throughout your life is to deal with those things right away. It may not feel good but it'll probably allow you to view things from a different perspective. It would cause you to wonder what if? but then one day you'll see things are done and you woud have to just move on. When you've moved on you'd see how easier things woud be even though things are different now. Thats's just the kinks of growing up in your life.
