Every now and then Postsecret washes up something that has meaning for me. Today just happens to be one of those days.
I think maybe life would be easier if it was as OK for “grownups” to be confused or scared as it is for little kids to feel that way. Somewhere along the line we forget as we “master” our world that just because the things that were new and scary when we were three are no longer new and scary doesn’t mean there aren’t other new and scary things out there and that the difference between being three and being “a grownup” is that you keep pushing even when you’re scared. Somewhere along that same line continuing to push evolved into “not OK to be frightened.” There’s something wrong with that.
