We lived carelessly with out a fear in the world now as adults we live carefully fearing the world.
As kids we'd always heard grown - ups reminisce early childhood memories and wish how they could be a kid again. We'd just smile and laugh thinking it was silly not understanding what they meant until we grew up and wished we too could be children again.
We grew up looking at the world through rose - colored glasses not knowing what it had in store for us but we knew that whatever it was we looked forward to it.
But somewhere down the road our glasses broke for most of us and we saw the world for how it really was and we so desperately tried to fix what was broken just to get that rose - colored glimpse again.
We'd do anything to catch a glimpse of what once was long ago. We find ourselves reminiscing distant memories that we had seemed to have forgotten. Our first friend, our first kiss, our first real heartbreak. With our firsts we remember our lasts too.
And somehow we find the past sneakily creeping up on us out of nowhere relasing so many emotions we tried so hard not to have. And that is just part of growing up.
