I know this is lacking, but to me, this describes what some feel about the transition from childhood to adulthood. Some young adults just have it together- they know what they want and how to get it...but I'm not that way. I have felt lost and alone and like some of the things I wanted to do, those "opportunities" that were opened up, are now gone. Time is passing me by and I can feel it rushing past like the sun is setting on me and if I'm not fast enough I'll be late for the rest of my life. I haven't found my place yet and I have yet to accomplish the things that I know would make me feel like an adult. There's a balance that I haven't found and a key that is still yet to be grasped by me. Opportunity may just be waiting there for me but how will I ever find it if I can't hear it knocking and all I do hear is "you won't make it" or "you won't amount to much"? Sometimes I find that I'm handicapping myself and expecting things to just fall into my lap but in reality you have to exert yourself in order to get the best results from anything you do. So that's my goal: to try harder.
If you feel the same way or have felt
this way in the past, please comment.
