Why Adulthood is better than Childhood?
2 min read
I see a lot of people saying that childhood was awesome and there were no worries. They are not happy with their current situation. I agree adulthood is not without its challenges but at the same time it is the most beautiful stage of life. In this blog, I'm going to give some reasons for the same.
The problems with being a child
Looking back, we think that there were no problems in childhood. Well, that's not exactly true, problems were there but compared to our current stage, those problems don't seem like very big problems, but at that time those problems also seemed like very big problems, for example, completing the homework.
The main problem with being a child is that you have very little control over your life, you can't decide what you eat or wear, you can't decide where you want to go, and you can't decide who you hang out with.
Additionally, not all of us are very fortunate to NOT experience financial or household problems in the childhood, some children who grow up in poor families don't have access to all the luxuries that children around them have(good toys, trips etc.) and they can't do much about it at that stage of life, since, they can't work, neither do they know any specific skill so they can make money. To make it worse, some children witness their parents fighting every day, their drunkard father and experience depression.
Doesn't seem like "without worries" anymore, does it?
The privileges of being an adult
Whatever your situation is, if you are an adult you can change that, if you have financial problems, you can work and earn money, you can start with general labour jobs if you don't know any skills and then work your way up. If you have household problems, you can move out. Plus, you get to decide where you go, who you hang out with, what you eat and what you wear.
Of course, there are many challenges you have to face when you are an adult but the thing is that you can change that! And if you operate carefully, you are smart and you work hard, there's nothing that can stop you from being happy and rich.
In conclusion, every stage of life has its own problems that seem bigger than problems at other stages of life. The thing with being an adult is that you have the power to solve those problems while being a child, you can't do much, that's why adulthood is better than childhood.
