Everyone has an inner child. The only difference is that some people try to ignore that inner child and others embrace it.
Growing up I was always told I needed to “grow up” and “be less of a baby” for having certain likes, interests, and hobbies. I was told this by my family.
As a child.
Doesn’t make any sense to me, but I spent a lot of my childhood thinking the things I like and the stuff I was doing was wrong, that I needed to be “more of an adult” and like things adults liked instead of things kids liked. I think this started around as young as 10, but I could be wrong. I don’t have much of a memory of my childhood.
But embracing your inner child, especially as an adult, is absolutely more than okay. In fact, I’d say you probably should do it more often than not!
