Liberation and Responsibility

January 12th, 2010 Posted in reflection

Strict Standards: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, non-static method runPHP::EvalContent() should not be called statically in /home/helencha/public_html/mindmirror.net/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 163

There’s a part of growing up that is so hard to do. This part has everything to do with the responsibility that comes with growing up. Such things include getting a job, paying bills, buying a car, purchasing your first home, having life insurance, making a will, etc. The list goes on and on. When you’re a kid, you dream about growing up and having no one to answer to. Being free. Being your own boss. Except, you don’t realize, it hasn’t struck you yet maybe, that while you’re no longer your parents’ “employee,” you’re actually everyone else’s. Suddenly, you have more people to answer to. The bank. The job employer. The insurance agents. The real estate agents. The mortgage broker. More people to answer to.

Sometimes, growing up kinda sucks. Though, all those other things that come with it, the things you hoped for as a child, are sometimes what makes it worthwhile. You can go to bed any time you want (and suffer the consequences the next morning). You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want (and suffer the consequences of that as well). You can do whatever you want. Of course, you also have no one else to bail you out except yourself. Scary, but also somewhat liberating.
