When you were young, did dream of the freedom you’d have when you finally grew up? Or did you resist growing up, instead enjoying youth while you had it? We all go through an intense journey as we transition through our teens and into our 20s and then 30s. Growing up is confusing and challenging… but also exhilarating as you find new opportunities. It’s a struggle, but it’s also a chance to become the person you want to be. Sure, there are growing pains along the way. But in the end, we find strength to be ourselves.
We may go through a quarter-life crisis or have a hard time living alone at first. It’s no secret jobs can be tough to come by. Who knew adulting was so difficult?! We may feel nostalgia for our childhood and teen years. But as we work though these growing pains, we grow braver, wiser, and ready to take on anything life throws at us.
These are the growing pains we all face, captured in songs we can all relate to:
