One speaks about responsibility,
but when a problem occurs,
finger pointing actions to shift the blame can be seen often.
Some preached about listening to others,
but yet they themselves did not do so when required.
There were also a few who talked about how problems should be
handled and dealt with.
However, some of those few chose to run a way from problems if given an option.
Respect is earned and not given.
Even so, some people lose their self-respect from ignorance.
If you want to be treated as an adult,
then you better start to think and act like one.
Else your words about you being a grown up are just pointless.
Just like a building that has been reduced to nothing.
Anyway, point being is that
it is more than it meets the eye when it comes to growing up.
Of course, we live in a world of imperfection.
Sometimes we ourselves are hypocrites.
That is why we must continue to improve ourselves from time to time.
