Is it Greener on the Other Side?

When we were kids we wanted nothing more than to… be an adult! We wanted that freedom to make our own choices and do what we wanted to do. Once we become adults we find out it isn’t all it seemed to be when we were kids!

As they say the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Unknown

As adults we have:

  • to pay bills on time

  •  to work to make enough money

  • to fix things when they break

  • to buy groceries for several days

  • clean and maintain a house or apartment

  • paying taxes

Talk about A LOT of stress! Stress can cause lots of problems for people.  Stress can cause headaches, heart problems, depression and anxiety to name a few. This is what we wanted as kids? The stress of being an adult? Man did we have it wrong!

Sometimes we even go to college to get a bachelors, masters or even Ph.D. Talk about added stress and work! Right now I am pursuing my masters and considering getting a Ph.D. I might be crazy!

Kids have:

  • Homework

  • Some play sports

  • some have chores

  • get to play with friends

Not too much stress there. I think we should enjoyed being kids more instead of wanting to grow up quicker!

What do you think? Is it greener on the other side?
