“Really, it’s OK. After all, it’s my generation that’s to blame for this bullshit culture.”
"…nobody knows how to be a grown-up anymore. Adulthood as we have known it has become conceptually untenable…"
Sometimes, given my age, I feel like I am one of the last “grown-ups” and mostly having to try and navigate relationships with those that refuse to “grow-up”, whatever that may mean.
"Grown people feel no compulsion to put away childish things: We can live with our parents, go to summer camp, play dodge ball, collect dolls and action figures and watch cartoons to our hearts’ content. These symptoms of arrested development will also be signs that we are freer, more honest and happier than the uptight fools who let go of such pastimes."
But honestly, at some point one must surely “put away childish things” in order to grow, mustn’t one?
