My dream is to be a kid again?Watch
No mention of Brexit either.
I've just started Uni and because I'm not really close to anyone yet I always find myself looking back, not even too long ago like 5 months, where I had a tight group of like 7 mates and always subconsciously knew that my family were 10 minutes away. I want that back. I want that sense of belonging back.
Now that I have to be independent and think what I want for dinner and think how I'm going to do things instead of having someone, anyone, have overall control of where my life is going is extremely scary.
But then I remember back to before I arrived. The summer where I so desperately wanted to leave my small town and head off into that world for all its benefits like the privacy and the freedom.
Honestly, you want the best of both worlds but it never happens. My childhood is over and I have to accept it no matter how hard it is for me.
Your memories are still there, the people you bonded with over that time still exist. All both you and I can do is cherish them.
But presuming you did have a nice time, yes its very normally to want to go back to a nice time. Especially as we tend to selectivly remember the best bits.
Although to be honest, I am more looking forward to being a parent and watching my kids go through that life, then re-doing it again for myself.
