Have you ever wanted to grow up so badly that you missed what was going on right then?
You looked up and realized that you had lost all that time you spent trying to grow up too fast.
How long do you want to live? Ninety, say?
Let’s look at a representation of your life.
The red line shows how long most people want to be older than they are.
The blue line shows how long most people want to be younger than they are.
Think about it.
If you spend all of your growing up years (age 1-18 or so) wishing you were older, you’re going to end up spending your older years (age 30-90ish) wishing you were young again.
I guess the moral of the story is: enjoy life right where you are. Life is so much better for the people who never wish they were older or younger!
There are plenty of perks to being a teen. Try to think about them, and maybe post some in the comments!
