To grow up

       What does it mean to 'grow up'? Is it maturing? Is it knowing more than you knew before. Is it a general understanding of things? It is all of these things together. When growing up you start to put pieces of things together and one day things that didn't make sense might seem clearer. Growing up is also about maturing, not playing stupid games with the kids but holding a conversation with the adults. Of course that doesn't mean you can't play with the kids anymore. A lot of times, while growing up you might experience a turning point that could change your life. In the novel To kill a mockingbird by Harper lee, Jem experiences this while taking care of a lady who used to be a drug addict. I have also experience multiple things that have changed my view over and over again. Some of them good, most of them bad. I will speak of one vaguely. When I was ten I sadly had to experience going through something very rough that for reasons, will not be shared. On that day my life was changed forever and I was forced to grow up. No more goofing around because this was serious and coming into a situation like the one at hand, being a kid was not an option. I had experiences before that day that certainly added to this turning point but that event really was the big point in my life where I had fully matured. It really goes to show that their are turning points in life when you just have to mature for better or worse. Ant that's what it is like to 'grow up'
