Am I an Adult?
You ever have days when you feel like you're just...
...days when you question...
In our society there are "milestones" that are supposed to tell us that we've reached adulthood - getting a job, getting an education, getting your own place, getting married, having children, etc. What happens when you are nearly 30 and haven't reached all these milestones?
Does that mean I'm not an adult? I certainly don't feel like ones at times.
Life was so much easier when we were younger. I remember playing dress up and pretending to be an adult, thinking this was all there was to adulthood:
...little did I know it's more like this:
Sure there are times when I've felt more "adult" than I want (i.e., this weekend signing 1/3 of my paycheck to the IRS for the taxes I somehow owe them) but most days
I know I can't be alone here. There have to be others that feel this way too. Maybe I'm just missing something, maybe what I am feeling is being an adult. Somehow there must be more.
How old were you or what "milestone" did you go through that made you "feel like an adult"? Or is there really no such thing as "becoming" an adult these days?
