I am scared of growing up...

I am afraid of a lot of things.

When I was a kid, everything scared me.

I was afraid of nightmares, because they kept me awake at night.

Because of my nightmares, I became scared of the dark.

As result I feared monsters under my bed, I thought they could wake me up at night.

When I was a child my biggest fear was to grow up.

I did not want to become older; I was afraid of what was going to happen.

I was afraid of losing my parents or losing my friends.

But I grew up, and I faced all my fears.

I did lose some friends though the years. And I don’t speak with my parents in the same way as I used to.

And I noticed that all my childhood fears were nothing compared to the real monsters.

The real monsters are people.
