    How old were you when you realized you were an adult?

    It sounds like a silly question but I was thinking about it and I didn't realize I was an adult until I was in my 20's. I started working at 16 and had two long term relationships but somehow, I didn't realize I was an adult until I had to make the decision to actually say "no" when it came to my future. Without getting into details, I realized I was an adult when I had to make the choice to leave my ex who was childish and lacked any drive or motivation to get more from life. I outgrew him.

    I always felt more mature than other people my age but that really made me feel like an adult. I believe that being an adult requires a mindset and a period of growth more so than a number to dictate whether or not someone is indeed an adult.

    How old were you when you realized you were an adult or felt like you were one?

    When i was 22, almost 23 i felt it for the first time. I was finished with one semester of Grad School and i realized that i was well past the point of no return to be a bum or a burnout...i had locked into the "career route" so to speak. It was a really unique feeling because nothing had had that level of finality before. I could tell you what i intended to do for the next 40-ish years. The work portion of your life is twice as long as EVERYTHING leading up to it and it's hard to even wrap your head around, but accepting that and trudging forward because it's what adults do is what told me i had finally 'made it'.

    Soon after I turned twenty, but it's a long story so I'll leave it at that.

    20- when I moved to a new city for a new job and failed miserably. Fell flat on my face. Coincidentally, that realization led me to joining the military. And boy was that a mistake lol
