I was wondering for a long time, why do we miss childhood so much considering the fact that during childhood, we wanted to grow up as quickly as possible. Luckily I was able to convince myself with this analogy when I wrote a Quora answer. Tell me if you also agree with this!
Let’s say you like biscuits, you began eating biscuits every day. At first, you like it, but after some time, you began to dream of the chocolates. You want your biscuit stack to get over so you can try chocolates, you eat more biscuits without even tasting it fully.
Now when you got chocolates, eventually You are bored of that also and you wish you have biscuits like before and realise it was good actually, but you didn’t enjoy eating it well.
Like this when we are kids, we want to grow up badly. When we do and see the life of adults, we want to go back again to childhood.
Life has many phases…. we enjoy all that phase like childhood , teenage,adult age etc… All have their favorite phase… my favourite phase is childhood…
May be you too agree that…. How beautiful that age was…. no worries,no tension,no jealous,no greed,no selfish thoughts…… our heart was so pure, with innocent mind….we were always with our loved ones in world mom,dad and our siblings….. we did all what we loved without any second thoughts… we enjoyed our life in our own way… we made new friends,played with them,started experimenting our life… how beautiful our life will be if it stayed in that phase….. ofcourse it cant stay…:) As we growup, we stressed our life this much that we dont have time to be like that… we use the phrase’ wen i was a child i used to be lik this like this’‘ why we were same,our heart was same… it’s just that our priorities in life changed… instead of thinking about us .we started giving importance to the surrounding people… ‘omg that is so childlish wat they will think of me ‘ We made ourself a limit and learned to live within that for this society…. we can get back to that time… some do that wen they have kids to play with… that childlike personality is always there inside us..but we dont hav time to look around..give it a chance… if i got a chance to ask god something… i will ask ‘ god let me live my childhood once again… enjoying it with whole heart’
