Innocence attracts me the most. That is why I love the company of kids rather than people of my own age. I don’t have to fabricate my feelings to them. I can be who I am.
But with older people everything is so difficult. As much as I love innocence, I end up losing some part of it when I am with these people because I feel the necessity of hiding and fabricating things. I do it because of my reluctance to expose my true self in a fear that I would get judged.
We are in a constant fear of being judged these days. I don’t want to be judged and I don’t want to judge anyone else either. But do all people go by the same motto? No.
Reality is, the more you grow, the wider your circle becomes and you have to meet a lot of people and of all different ages. But then again, there’s a beauty of all ages! When you’re young, you’re innocent; when you’re a teenager, you’re adventurous; when you’re middle-aged, you’re experienced and when you’re old, you’re content. The fear of being judged will only limit your possibilities, so don’t give into what other people might think of you; do things as you like.
Ending with a quote that I have read somewhere “Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason”- by being judged or not.
