You become an adult when you forego buying ice cream to buy leafy greens to make a salad, because you want to go back to wearing size 30 jeans to prove to your ex (because he/she was a fool, dumping you for someone else) that you still got it.
▌Work, sleep, eat, repeat.
▌The inevitable break up.
▌Having the courage to apologize.
▌Not all friendships last forever, and that's okay.
▌Most adults are clueless and are figuring out life just like everybody else.
▌It feels like things move so slow and life will be endless when you were a kid. But life speeds by horribly fast now.
Life is EXPENSIVE.
As soon as I started working full time and having to pay monthly bills (rent, groceries, insurance, etc.), let me tell you - my restaurant eating much came to a 100% stop. Life is pricey...
You have very little freedom in your life if you choose to go down the conventional route.
For example, you get a job, you think you need a promotion. You get a house, you think you need to get a bigger house. You have kids, you decide those kids should be doing expensive sports or going to private school. And suddenly all your money is gone, you have no spare time, and you feel like the more stuff you own, the more it starts to own you. —— doobeedoo3
