Page 200: Pan Syndrome

/ Sunday, January 20, 2013 /
On my 28th birthday, a friend told me that I should get over fairy tales, fantasy books, mythology, converse shoes, going to gigs, origami, and other things that fascinate me but he deemed as “only for kids and teenagers”. That I should release myself from "Peter Pan syndrome".

From the point of view of 28 YO women who still believes that if she finds the right abandoned lighthouse, she can find Abarat, I found no logic what-so-ever in his “admonition”. Haha. I know it seems like an excuse, but I always believe that deep down inside everyone always has this kid that s/he used to be. Moreover, being a functioning adult has nothing to do with liking kids stuff.

As much as I agree with Murakami that “With each new dawn it’s not the same world as the day before. And you’re not the same person as you were, either,” I also believe that the kid inside of you, shape the way you are right now and will always be a part of you.

Maybe I have that syndrome anyway, a bit, but it doesn’t mean that I will talk and behave like a kid all the time. Ah well...

Brian White once said, we never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public. Ah orang dewasa ini penuh kepura-puraan sekali, aku tidak suka.
