I am growing up

03 May 2010
by Constantine Begidjanyan

I am fourteen-years-old and I don't want to grow up. The older I get the more responsibilities I have. I already have to face many issues without the help of an adult. Whatever was not allowed two or three years ago is now turning into a responsibility. Many children are happy with such changes, but not I. It is possible that I am selfish. I like the fact that my parents look after me. On the contrary, I do not like the thought that after a few years I have to think about how to manage my own life. But no one can stay fourteen forever, and I have no choice but to accept this fact, just like all the other young people who have lived and do live in the world.
