Any adult with any form of responsibility will know the feeling of sheer terror that those responsibilities can bring with them. Especially when trying to hold them during a time when the world is falling apart. The last thing you feel like doing is showing up to virtual work, helping with virtual schooling or attend yet another ‘team bonding’ virtual quiz.
Being an adult can be hard at times because of all of the added responsibility that your childhood self had no idea about. Paying bills? Boring! Talking to people? No, thank you. Going to work? Again!?
While getting up and going to work every day is getting more and more challenging by the day, your to-do list is still there as a frequent unwelcome reminder of your need to be an adult.
However, there are some pretty amazing parts of being an adult that the younger version of you would absolutely relish, even though they never ever dreamt of having to survive a pandemic. These are the things you should try to learn to take advantage of again and excite that inner child!
Here are some of the pretty brilliant reasons that you should focus on why being an adult is still cool.
Getting to earn your own cash
Having an allowance was cool as a kid, but obviously there is a limit as to how far it was stretched after you bought the stuff you wanted and of course the essential candy. There would always be the money in the card from those relatives, but we all know that this type of bonus just wasn’t always going to cut it.
So that’s where being an adult is the best. You may spend most of your day cursing your job and the people you work with, but at the end of the day, you’re not working for free and not all your money has to go on bills.
You get to make the rules
Who said you have to eat dessert after your main meal? Nobody when you’re an ADULT. Don’t fancy eating that piece of broccoli today? Leave it. Throw it out. Nobody can judge you.
Being an adult means having access to your own money. You get to make the rules. Eat whenever you feel like it. Embrace the freedom and deal with the consequences later on.
If you need some extra time in the evening unwinding, give yourself unlimited screen time because we all know that killing zombies is the ultimate way to relax.
You can drive
The best thing about being an adult is having the opportunity to take to the road as often if you feel like it.
Again, you earn your own money now, so if you see a 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe for sale, then you can find the means to pay for it and cruise down the road like the cool adult you are.
Adulthood doesn’t have to be all about bills and stress. It can be the best time of your life.
