When did we as human beings lose our child like nature? When did we give up on our dreams and goals?

I'm a Senior in High School and I have begun to notice that I'm not as playful as I used to be. I don't joke about stuff and I'm way more serious. Yes I understand this is growing up but do I really have to undergo this process to fit in to main stream society. So my question when did we lose ourselves when did we allow circumstances and people around us to determine who we should be?
