Growing Up: Surviving the Challenges of Life

When I look at the sky, it never changes. I began to ask I myself why we need to grow if the sky that never changes? At first, I couldn’t understand that. But now I know, In life, growing up is inevitable. You need to grow to explore the challenges here on Earth. 

Being a kid has a lot of fun and excitement. I could still remember the things that I did when I was little. I don’t need a laptop, phone, or whatever – I only need the ground where I can run and jump with my playmates. I don’t even need Wi-Fi as I can use my voice to communicate with them.

When I was a kid, I cry because I couldn’t get the toys that I want. Now, I’m crying because of failures, heartaches, and disappointments. I don’t even know what these are until I felt them. Growing up, I thought I was good enough. But, facing the real world is never easy. When I was a kid, a lot of people liked me – but then, that’s what I only thought.

I will never be good enough for other people. I need to accept that fact. Some people are cruel – they could bring you down till you give up. If you let these people ruin you, then you prove to them that you are not really good enough. So, whenever I’m down, I just keep on thinking the things that I want when I was a kid:

I want to be successful.

How can I do that if I have doubts? When I was a kid, my only doubt is to “never trust a stranger.” Now, I am even doubting myself – underestimating myself. I’m afraid to try something new, afraid to get out from my comfort zone. I’m afraid that I might fail everyone; including myself.

Failures made me see myself as worthless.

However, my view on life has changed now. There is no such thing as failure; these are only challenges. Like some games that we used to play when we were still little. We need to try again – try again until you know the result. Try again until we achieve the goal that we want.

Life is hard – no one told us that when we were young. The only important thing is – never ever give up. If it’s meant for you, for sure, it is worth it until the end.
