Being an adult is hard. Literally, no one needs to tell us this because if you don’t know it now… trust me, grasshopper, you’re gonna learn it soon.
We’ve had countless warnings from our parents and other adults who have tried to tell us that we would need to start paying for everything, we would have to find a well-paying job that offered benefits, that we would need to learn how to do laundry, and try not to cry when we saw how much the government took from our paychecks every two weeks.
But, I think we all know that these things don’t really seep into our minds until it happens all at once in this giant meteor of responsibility that none of us are prepared to deal with. Then next thing you know you’re sitting, sweating about your future but have nothing to comfort you because everything costs money. The only thing I can say to comfort you is that there are a lot of other 20-something adults who have no clue what they’re doing in life either. We’re all in this together.
