Okay so I thought why not list the differences between the 7 year old me and 17 year old me on my birthday! I guess you all will find some points relatable. So here it goes :
1. LEVEL OF EXCITEMENT
7 year old me – I’m sooooo excited. My birthday is like almost a month awaaayy
17 year old me- Ohh, tomorrow is my birthday? Great! I’m an year older.
2. BIRTHDAY PARTY
7 year old me – *Invites the whole locality including the neighbor’s cousin’s daughter to a grand party arranged by my mom and dad*
17 year old me- *never mind, I’ll give you the party next year dude*
7 year old me- The whole class is my friend and would love to make new friends everyday.
17 year old me – have altered my friends list and three or four people have made it through. Others are just people whom I talk with. But I can give my life for these three or four people.
7 year old me- always loves to be the center of attraction everywhere.
17 year old me- stays far away people, lingering in the corner of the room.
7 year old me- feels that everyone is sooo good and hopes the best for me.
17 year me- distinguishes people into toxic, non-toxic and best friends and family. But still manages to get hurt.
7 year old me- come back from school, go to play, return home when stars show up in the sky.
17 year old me- sits all day long in the room, changing positions, lazy to even step out.
7. STRESS AND TENSION
7 year old me- Stressed about the fact that I’ll soon be caught by the catcher in the hide and seek game.
17 year old me- Homeworks, assignments, projects, exams and what not?
8. AMBITION IN LIFE
7 year old me- Mocked at my elder brothers and sisters or friends when they said they never knew what they wanted to do in life.
17 year old me- Now understands what they meant when they said they didn’t know what they wanted to do in life.
7 year old me- very impatient. Can’t spend a minute sitting idle.
17 year old me- Favourite pass time is staring at the walls and roof. Can do it for hours.
7 year old me- always felt that older you get, the more freedom you have. Wanted to grow up as soon as possible.
17 year old me- feels that 7 year old me had so much freedom. Wants to go back in time.
Haha that was it. Before I started writing this post, I never even imagined I could list 10 differences. Anyway, it’s not right if we complain about growing up, because that’s what life is all about. Adapting to changes?
Good day everyone 😁💓
