What is Adulting?

Hey there! Welcome to firebonesblog. This evening, it’s just bants. This one is an extract from my ‘notes’ which I wrote a while back. If you follow it through, you can feel the frustration sitting comfortably at the beginning: then it’s as if towards the end, I remind myself to snap out of it! Being an adult can be hard and pose as a trick- so how does it work anyway?

I just want things to be better.

For real.

Sometimes I just can’t take whatever is happening.

I mean, I’m down to be an adult and all…

But damnnn that shit is stressful AF

I don’t be smiling genuinely no more,

I just give the smile of hope

Always lost in thoughts;

I miss that innocent vibe I used to have going on.

It’s still there but, it’s going yunno.

I don’t want it to be that way.

I want to live my best life, despite whatever.

Not shit stressing me out all the time. Thinking about the future or whatever. Like.

I just need to keep my positivity coming—

Better days ahead.

I know how many people look up to me. I can’t afford to be weak.

I’m my best motivator. I’m not giving up. Never will. Today is not Tomorrow.

Thank God!

  1. Why must we grow up or should I say ‘Adult’. I would love to think I’m the same as I was 15years ago. I just have better experiences and think a little different. I feel being grown up is a scam. It’s a way to stop you from viewing life as an opportunity to live and explore. Instead it traps you with bills and systems to converge to their rules and methods. I’m always going to be a child! But a smart one !
