Some say the secret to inner happiness is never grow up, staying a Peter-Pan like child forever.

The Child in You is Alive and Well!
People who know you since you were little would probably claim you haven't changed a bit! You're still the same energetic, funny and spontaneous person you always were. This doesn't mean you lack maturity, but it defitiely means you haven't let go of that inner child of yours. You can let it out and play, enjoying the world in the best, most visceral way. Some people may look at you funny, but don't pay any attention, and let that child play!
There's Still a Child in You, But rarely seen.
There IS a kid in you, or more likely a teen, showing their face only when life gives them the rare opportunity to come out. You still enjoy the music you loved but don't find it easy going to concerts. You'd like to sit down and see all the movies and books you missed out on but there are more important things to do. Don't worry, you still have an inner child, but they just grew alongside with you, at a slower pace, so they have new priorities now, just like you. One could say you have a fine balance between the adult you are and the child you used to be.
Your Inner Child Must Be Buried Very Deep
When was the last time you let that little kid inside you out to do something like laugh their heart out? If it's been too long, maybe it's time to consider searching for them, deep inside - look for memories of old times that will connect you to that child. It isn't gone, it's just waiting for you...
