I, also, fear growing up. You took my feelings and gave them words. Thank you.

Never compare your life with others, as you have no idea what their journey is all about.

You WILL remain a child forever in your heart. It does'nt matter whether you want to or not. Everybody does, in their own ways.

My God!!! I too felt the same sometime ago. But then I realised that It's not THAT bad to grow afterall. It has some plus points too, if thought about. Atleast our views would not be shooed away by saying "oh.. please do not mind... It's just a child speaking..."  Many more plus points too.. ;-)
