As kids, we didn’t really have filters. Did we? We could cry when we wanted without caring about the people around. That probably made us the happiest!

In our childhood, we didn’t have to look in the mirror to check how we are looking. So it was okay to have messy hair, dirty clothes, saliva dripping down your mouth. Being careless today can be fun!

  1. No Pretending

When we were kids we didn’t really have to pretend. It was perfectly alright to accept things the way they were without worrying about the consequences.

Be As You Are!

Kids never have dual personalities. They remain what they are, whether they are at home, a party or in any public place. Babies don’t wear masks and be themselves. We all wish we could be ourselves all the time!

  1. Forget and Forgive

The only thing which made us upset as kids was when somebody took our chocolate or our toy. But the beauty about that was that as soon as we got it back, the tears stopped too. We wish we could forgive and forget things that easily today also. World would have been such a happy place!

  1. Walk Without the Fear of Falling

Today when we walk and suddenly fall, we look around to check if anybody has seen us or not which as kids we never did! It was a simple act to fall as we walked. Interestingly though, falling while walking was considered cute when we were kids but now it is funny.

  1. Unknown to the Ugly Side of the World

Kids never have deadlines to follow. They can eat when they are hungry, sleep when they wish to, cry when they feel like and loiter around all the time. Today, we are always abiding by a deadline.
