Being a grown up did cost me more than i expected. Maybe because i have been forced unforcedfully to grow up quicker (because im the eldest of the 5 kids of my parents – not that i didn’t love it, of course. love you ma and pa.) And i thought what i have then was already what being a grown up is. But no. its WAY more than that. now things are ALL SO DIFFERENT. and it cost me more than just $ or Peso for that matter. It cost me heaps more sacrifices, heaps more challenges but resulted as a very contented life now. So i don’t regret it. Never will.
