What does being a “real adult” mean, anyway?
To many, it means you’ve finally reached the start of your adult life. You’ve left your childhood and high school behind. So the responsibility for who you are and who you will become now lies squarely on your shoulders alone.
Which means you also have some big decisions to make:
- Is college right for you?
- Will you leave home?
- Where will you live?
- Where will you work?
- Will you get married and start a family?
The real adult world can be a very big and daunting place when you’re just getting started. A great deal of hard work, persistence, and determination. It also requires that we make the choices right for us from the very beginning.
