When did you realize you were an adult? (If you haven’t yet, when do you think you will?)
I think I became an adult when my parents passed away, my mother’s death in particular was the final blow. I think at that point I realized that I can’t go home again and it was time to face reality and accept responsibility.
As long as you have your parents, there is that part of you that is still a child. At the time there was no one to fall back on and I was the one that was making decisions and taking action. It was not a pleasant feeling by any means but it was necessary in order to move on in my life.
