I, too , am energetic, emotional, playful but as an adult with adult friends expressing yourself is frowned upon. Watch what you say, how you say things, what you do, etc. How many times, as adults, do we try to shut down the passion that children have for life? I love it when kids get to choose their own outfits. They will have a life time of being fashion conscience, following social etiquette. Seriously all these social aspects of being an adult are confining, and the worry of hurting another’s feelings is constant in our minds, as a child; you feel badly when someone hurts your feelings but you easily get over it.
Yay for sappy moments, and the ability to express them!
