I am only 20 years old and this age is most certainly "insignificant" for a large number of people at the level of the famous "experience" of life!
It would seem, however, that I became an adult at the age of 15. This is where I refer to your article. I think it is not age that gives the seal: ADULT but it is the stages of life that put us to the test and that make us enter the status so envied when we were children.
It seems to me that it is suffering that helps us to become adults. To undergo a separation, to undergo a death, to undergo any other test. Overcoming all this makes us an adult. And yet, do not children often tell us a way?
If, as I say, it is suffering that makes us mature, then it is normal to be afraid of it because the word ADULT hides a whole lot of other meanings, synonymous with "I do not have not the right to make mistakes, I'm an adult. "
So a little advice: let's just stay with children just to tell ourselves that we have not reached the age of suffering. Thank you for spending a few minutes on my little text.
