When you’re young you’re so eager to grow up. All you care about is that freedom you’ll have. No one to tell you where to go or what to do or when to be home or even what to eat. No one around to make those decisions for you. But those decisions are what make being an adult the hardest thing possible. When you’re an adult, you don’t have anyone to make those decisions for you. All that pressure lines on your shoulders.
First the decisions are easy.
What classes should I take?
What am I going to do tonight?
Where should we spend spring break?
Then the decisions tend to get a bit harder.
Where should I apply for a career?
Can I afford this place’s rent?
What’s more important, new clothes or gas?
And then a bit harder.
Is he the one?
Am I ready for what comes with marriage?
How will we afford this wedding?
Then there are those questions that the toughest.
Where do we want our forever home to be?
Are we ready for kids?
Is this career what I want for the rest of my life?
Being an adult means freedom, but it also means making the hard decisions.
