What’s the worst thing about growing up?**
I think the worst thing about growing up is realising that you are completely responsible for yourself and one day you are going to be completely alone, like I am now. While there is the freedom of making your own choices, the payoff is that you have to make responsible choices all on your own, there is no-one to tell you whether it is a good decision or not.
