Since time immemorial, the take on adulthood has always been vague as everybody wants to viewed as an adult for the freedom to make personal decisions including teenagers and younger children. To adults, it is hard for them to get to view their children as adults, at least for a majority of them, despite the physical growth and advancement in age but still expect them to make decisions like adults do. For most people, it is quite annoying to live knowing that your parents will forever live viewing you as a kid despite how good you are at making decisions or how grown you are in age and size. This means that adulthood is all on you, for you to acknowledge that at the age you are, you need to be making better decisions about your life and take control of the things you can at the moment. There is so much that entails being an adult and for most ‘adults’ if asked, would say they want to be kids one more so that all decisions can be made for them and all the fending too done for them. The following are tips on the things you could do to feel more of an adult.
It is crystal clear that there is no adult club that in existence that when you reach their preferred age you get direct acceptance. To begin with, you need to change your approach on life and the circumstances it brings forth to as so as to be able to live a meaningful adult life. The society puts much pressure on people on the things they are expected to have achieved at a certain age or point in their life which pushes people to make all the wrong decision chasing to meet these societal expectations. For you to achieve this and, much more according to your own definition of success, you need to improve your take and approach on life taking caution at the same time on the consequences that come along with decision making.
The next thing that you need to do so as to take it well and graduate to adulthood is to be ready to take on the scary things in life depending on the abilities you have at the moment. There is no notification in life for you to know that you are ready for the next big step but to look at where you are and decide on what you can manage to do for yourself or others. If you are working and quite financially stable, there is no fault in taking the next step and moving out of your parents’ house and start life on your own as one of the scary things in life.
The last thing to do so as to be able to face comfortably as an adult is to acknowledge the fact that life itself is not a trial.
