so i’m growing up and as things get realer and realer, i could only imagine how my dad feels or had felt at the time of when he had realized all of this too. when i was a child i thought of absolutely nothing. i acted and just did. i moved to my own rhythm and thought intently of things that mattered and acted on it, most of the time i wouldn’t think. i’d talk just for the sake of talking and do just for the sake of doing and that made me happy. growing up and getting older you begin to expand on your range of thinking and it just turns into over thinking and now you’re not even thinking intently on anything. you’re thinking about everything and it stalls you, you stop growing at such a rate because you’re constantly trying to make sense of things that, for the most part, don’t need making sense out of. too many processes are going through your head.
i miss the days when all i did was hang out with my dad and just play tekken or soccer or hide and seek or tag or power rangers. i feel this way and i could only imagine how he felt when he realized all of this too as he was growing especially now since his dad is in the hospital. idk. i just feel less of being me.
