One day, no matter how hard you’re trying to avoid it, you’ll realize that you have grown up. That you are no longer the little child in kindergarden. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you are 18 yet, but it means that your soul has evolved, you've grown as an individual. And it most importantly means that you have to stand on your own feet from now on.
I think that is the biggest and also the most frightening part. You suddendly realize that it’s all your choice. Whether you go to Uni or you do a gap year or you try to find work.. it all depends on you. The road that you take, the decisions and the mistakes that you make and will make.
And this scares the crap out of me.
Not having a pre-made plan, having to figure everything out on your own, not being sure who you really are and what you really want, trying to go out there and do your thing without leaving anything or anyone important behind.
