i wanna be one of those people who does yoga at sunrise and drinks water out of mason jars filled with berries and twigs and shit
-My dad. I’m 24, and asked if you ever shake the feeling of not being an adult, and this was his response. Probably the most comforting thing he could have said.
Your dad is damn right.
You also reach a point in life where you might not have done something before, but all of your other experiences lend themselves as a sort of support to make choosing certain paths/actions easier or more logical.
You also reach a point where you become more and more okay with yourself. When I was a teenager I was redonk embarrassed by my love of the Indigo Girls (well, when I say ‘embarrassed’ I mean bullied by my peers and called a lesbian). As someone who has Seen Some Shit I no longer care about the opinions of people who don’t matter (and care less about the opinions of those who do). It’s comforting to settle into oneself. The percentage of things you’ve already dealt with helps you gain perspective and you realize those people bullying you or teasing you are dealing with their own demons.
Being an adult creeps up on you, but one day you’re going to wake up and find that it’s actually pretty okay. Life is easier in most respects, and you are the one in control. Adulthood is pretty awesome and definitely not something to dread or be afraid of.
gUYS. Guardians of the Galaxy was SO FUCKING AMAZING.
