I recently turned 32 and still find myself wondering, when will I feel like a Real Adult?
I started thinking about it again today as I was putting on lipstick. Sounds stupid, but it’s something I rarely, to never do, and associate it very much with being grown up / adult.
Over the years I’ve had many milestones that I previously thought would make me feel this way like an adult, but alas nothing.
- Moving out of my parents house
- My first apartment
- A permanent full-time job
- Couch / furniture not purchased at IKEA
- Get an RRSP
I’m convinced now that I won’t feel like a real adult until we get married, buy a house and have kids or some combo of the three.
Am I the only one who feels this way? Does anyone ever really feel like an adult?
