    What would you say has been the worst part about growing up? Finding out Santa isn't real? No longer getting money in birthday cards? Not being able to **** yourself without being judged? (Jking about the last one ).

    For me it's the disappointing number of birthday and christmas presents One year all I got was a hot chocolate frother (turned out to be pretty useful).

    The responsibility. It really sucks to not be able to afford to mess things up and just learn from your mistakes anymore.

    Well this has been a depressing set of answers so far. I was hoping for more light hearted stuff like finding out the tooth fairy isn't real

    Realizing your friends ****ing suck.

    And that you aren't as shredded as you would like to be. Or can't get as Drunk as you would like because you have to "Succeed" and all that bull****.

    ---But no, to leave you with something more mature - always be true to yourself, and love your friends and family, and prioritise.

    I never have regrets living by those few things.

    Realising what will hurt you the most are things that not even your parents can protect you from.

    Not being able to hang around the park, messing about town with friends on the weekends.

    My life is literally uni work, uni work, part time job, uni work, summer job, uni, uni, uni. *sigh*

    Worst part about growing up? Come on people! Life begins at lvl 90.

    But yeah, the worst part is probably not being able to tank at dungeons throughout growing up or losing your 'rested' bar.

    Missing year 8 and year 9 alot.

    My days, my form class was hilarious, I would actually look forward to going into school because something funny always happened. We even had many inter-form fights because there were some personality clashes. Was hilarious man.

    Oofft, this quite a hard one actually haha.

    I don't think I could point out one single thing that has been the worst. I remember how amazing christmas used to be, just not being able to sleep on christmas eve and then being the first one up in the morning, running about in your cute little pyjamas and waking everyone up and just play with your toys all day, dreaming away, not a worry in the world!

    Then you get to gcses and it's all down hill from there; stress, peer pressure, lack of free time, and then the studying life really begins; a levels, university, phds and masters, jobs and everything just completley changes in what feels like seconds!
