As an adult you’re expected to have your shit together. If you don’t you’re considered a failure in the eyes of other adults. You are shamed for having breakdowns, doing things that are considered childish even if they make you happy (sleeping with stuffed animals, cosplaying, and other things of that nature.), not having a career and or having your life planned out in general. And I hate it so much.
Adulthood is like being told to go somewhere you’ve never been without a map or any help.
So I’m here to say:
- It’s perfectly alright for you not to have your life planned out. Whether you’re in your twenties or fifties.
-There is nothing wrong with needing mental health days.
-Anxiety, depression and other things of that nature do not make you weak.
-Do whatever makes you happy! Regardless of whether or not it’s childish in someone else’s eyes.
-Do your best and forget the people that want to drag you down.
-Your own happiness should be your number one priority.
In the end it’s not anyone’s life but your own and if you’re happy with it that’s all that matters.
a moral compass who remains constant in the face of change; at the cost of being deemed ridiculous and archaic; played with restrained torment and certitude by BC. my fave role in that BC brings a difficult character to life with palpable love and respect and speaks volumes through his silence than all the chattering of the characters around him…
