Life used to be a wild ride of emotions. Everything set me off — joy, anger, sadness, all intense! Lately, though, things have calmed down. Stuff that used to bug me doesn’t faze me as much.

It’s not that I don’t care anymore. It’s more like my feelings are like gentle waves now, not crashing ones.

Maybe that’s what growing up is — learning to handle emotions in a smoother way.

We get better at dealing with life’s ups and downs. Things that used to knock me over don’t feel so scary. It’s like being strong and peaceful at the same time.

This doesn’t mean I’m emotionless, just…wiser.

My feelings are deeper, and I understand them better. Growing up is about learning from life’s bumps and finding that inner peace, even when things are crazy.

Thank you for reading!
