Looking back at what I thought "grown-up" life would be like when graduating high school, I see just how far off I was. Throughout time since then I have learned the truth and I have seen more than enough to know that your age is only part of being "grown-up." The other part is whether you choose to act like a "grown-up." We all can see the philosophy of Peter Pan and not wanting to grow up but far too many people are acting as if they are still young causing unnecessary consequences for other grown ups. We all end up paying the price for those who have the "Peter Pan Syndrome."
