Afraid of growing up

I’m afraid of growing up/ growing old, seems kind of silly bc I’m still a teenager but I can’t help but want to cling onto time right now

Yup. Its a good idea to make the most of your time with your friends.

Hi lavndr, thanks for sharing your worries! I don’t think it’s silly at all. Many of us have probably felt this way before. Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood brings about a lot of change, which can be challenging.

It might be good to think about why you feel afraid of growing up. Hopefully these resources here can help you learn more about yourself and relieve some anxiety about adulting.

Hey @lavndr!Thank you for sharing your thoughts, think it’s courageous of you to sound out what you’re afraid of in this safe space. Similar to what @starlight has commented, it’s ok to be afraid of growing up/old especially when we are moving into new phases in life. Your feelings are validated!

Cheers to cherishing the present as well as welcoming new happenings in life! :smile:
