People Are Sharing Things They Hated As Kids But Love As Adults, And I Agree With Every Single One
"My mom's hugs."
And there were so many answers that I totally agreed with! Here are some of the most relatable responses:
1. "Sleeping. The moment I wake up, I already start looking forward to going to bed at night. Always hated it as a child; it was like punishment. But as an adult, I love it."
4. "Eating at a restaurant. As a kid, I put on uncomfortable clothes, waited in a car, waited to get food, ate food that was subpar compared to how my mother made it, waited for adults to finish eating, then waited the car ride back. As a child, it was a senseless experience with no end in sight."
"But as an adult, no grocery store! No cooking! No dishes! I can dress up and just walk to a restaurant, tell jokes and laugh with my friends, and sip on a beer while waiting for food that is way superior to my own cooking. And after we're done, we can just keep hanging out."
9. "When I was a kid, I was deeply offended at the very concept of carrot cake. I mean, WTF? Who makes a cake out of carrots? It just seemed so horribly wrong. Well, turns out, carrot cake is amazing."
"It's my favorite kind of cake now. I mean, it certainly helps that it's filled with all kinds of delicious spices and slathered with cream cheese frosting. But still, it's great stuff."
13. "Going on walks. I never understood why my parents went on walks after dinner or on a weekend morning. But they're great for some low-impact exercise and to clear your head or just have a conversation with someone."
"Now I try to go out by myself a couple of times a week, and with my dad every other week."
