I like my independence.
I like being able to go anywhere and do things on my own time with no restrictions.
I like the feeling of being self-sufficient and capable;
The feeling of controlling my future and having a say in the things that I want or need.
I like knowing that my life is in my hands and that it is mine to live.
But even though I like the feeling of self-sufficiency, there are days when I wish I had someone to lean on.
Days when I feel like I am going to collapse under the immense pressure.
On these days, I wish I could stop shouldering the burden and be a kid again but I know I can’t pick and choose the hurdles I have to face in adulthood.
So, even though this journey through adulthood has been a rollercoaster ride, at least I have a say.
And that’s what makes me feel somewhat okay.
