Being an adult is hard... and its tiring... I know that people tell you that you should enjoy your childhood, but give me a break who belives adults when they say that... They are the ones having all the fun right?? Yeah, whatever... Paying bills and having kids and dealing with authority figures sucks. I'm going back to being 5. I got a nap and a snack every day and I got to play with Barbies...

Ninja turtles were way cool... We had a big bucket full of action figures and GI Joes and stuff... It was great until my uncles got a hold of about twenty m80s and blew our toys to Hell. :)

i do agree with you..being grown up bring just lot of responsibility and burden that makes you feel low..i miss my childhood too badly ...days of pure enjoyment...no tension..no no misunderstanding..no custom..just a kid having a pure heart and just follow whatever my heart says.....just laying on your bed and eating snacks and watching my favorite shows was truly a relaxation for me.. yes..i don't want to grow up too....

I'm glad someone agrees... I get that its rewarding to do adult things... but its soul crushing and BORING!

Hi lululastrange, Being a what you are now and acting your age is not difficult, the difficult thing is acting like a child even you are not anymore. I agree with you that it is a nice and wonderful feeling being a child since you will have to play and don't pay bills but to stay in that situation I think it is not healthy. God has created us wonderfully, He had his own plan that we have to go to different stagest childhood to adulthood. God will help us in any situation or stages we will be on just pray and always keep in touch with Him. Don't worry about paying bills God will provide job for you. Now what you have to do is to enjoy your life and as you grow grow with God's presence, God Bless and good luck. Thanks can you be my friend?

Paying bills is what keeps the roof over the heads of our kids and its quite rewarding to know that you can look after your kids properly! I love being an adult, you need responsibility in life. My neighbour has a foster son who refuses to grow up so he is treating him like a kid sending him 2 bed at 7 walking him to school and all that he hates but but my neighbour told him if he doesnt grow up and start acting like an adult then it will carry on. =D

You know how to go back to 5! You're a genius and I'm jealous. I was so happy to be able to travel around and not have responsibilities. I even liked barbies and no one said crap about me being a boy because I was just a little kid. You are totally right that it's hard. Authority figures are even more hard. You should share your secret for going back, you've got it in my head , even if it's just for a vacation.

I could not have said it better myself! God,do I wish I were a kid all over again. My sis and her family are visiting me and she has 2 kids.My nephew is 2 and my niece is 4.I play a lot with them.I was having the discussion you posted here with her only yesterday.I was telling her how sickning,monotonous and boring life gets as an adult.A child finds the smallest of things so fascinating.They can play with paper or a magnet and be happy.Wish I could turn back time :|

When I was a kid I wanted so badly to grow up at once, to be independent from my parents, to buy the things that I want .. And now that I am an adult, I want to go back to being a kid.. living on my parent's salary, just eating, sleeping and watching tv all day.

chilhood is very brilliant but life is only one and we have to enjoy each stage of our life..As childhood is crazy /...younghood is difficul and with responsibility..and old life is very slow..No worry each stage of life is very good never feel less for onething rather then to enjoy other thing
