It’s amazing how we view the world as adults.Â As children everything is so damned innocent.Â Everything seems so easy and everything seems so hopeful.Â Â Ah yes, and then reality kicks in.
All the thing you remember as children aren’t quite the same anymore are they?Â Nope.Â They friggin’ suck.Â Â Don’t get me wrong, I like being an adult but there’s just too much to think about and way too much to be annoyed at.
I’ve summed up five points of view that really change as you age.Â It’s just a mish mash of crap.Â Not even good writing but you’ll get the point…
How I Viewed Sports
When you’re a kid you see sports as being fun.Â Â You root for your favorite players because they look cool or because they have great stats.Â You look up to these people.Â You play sports because you want to and because you enjoy them.Â Also because you get to pretend you are your favorite players.Â As an adult?Â Â It’s “why the hell am I so old?”Â Most of these guys are pieces of shit.Â Steroids!Â Millions of dollars for playing a game?Â Screw that.Â I’d give anything to be a professional athlete.Â Then again, I still like to play sports competitively but once you see the money side of the business it definitely alters your view.
How I Viewed Work
As a kid it’s “wow, you have an office daddy?”Â “Wow!Â you get to take the train to work?”Â “Wow!Â You make 100 dollars a week?”Â Work is so innocent and such an accomplishment to children.Â They see it as the coolest thing ever.Â Plus they don’t know the value of a dollar.Â Now?Â Work is generally how you pay the bills.Â Most people hate work.Â Â Hell most people despise it.Â Commuting?Â God that’s horrible.Â Work is the bane of man’s existence.Â Bottom line?Â Work sucks and is nothing to be admired.
How I View Family
As a kid family is awesome.Â You play with your cousins and siblings.Â You get to go on fun trips with family.Â Â Basically you know nothing nor do you understand how messed up your family truly is and how families in general truly are.Â Â Now?Â Everyone has an insane uncle, a perverted cousin, an alcoholic, a psycho, you name it.Â Everyone’s got someone they don’t talk to anymore.Â There are always feuds and family vacations officially blow and are too stressful.Â Â It’s so simple as a kid but as an adult?Â Forget about it.
How I View Relationships
As a kid the general rule of thumb is girls are gross.Â Friends are friends and are people you can play with.Â Â Â Now?Â Now it’s practically like family.Â There are always messed up friends.Â Friends screw you over.Â Friends talk behind your back.Â Friends move away.Â Â Friends just aren’t the same friends.Â And true friends?Â You just don’t get to see them enough. In terms of real relationships?Â We need a novel for that.
How I View Nutrition
You can eat anything as kid.Â As an adult?Â Forget about it.Â Nothing is safe.Â Nothing.Â Cholesterol!Â Fatty acids!Â Vitamins!Â Drink tons of water!Â What the hell happened?Â As a kid you eat anything, period.Â Seems you just can’t do that as a grown up.
