6 Reasons It’s Great to Be an Adult

by Evil HR Lady on February 16, 2016

I keep seeing memes and rants about the difficulties of “adulting.” People are patting themselves on the back for things like putting on pants. Let me let you in on a little secret: You have to wear pants when you are a kid too. And sometimes, you even have to wear pants that your mom picks out for you that you hate. In reality, it’s great to be an adult and “adulting” is more fun than being a kid. Here are six reasons why it’s awesome.

1. You can choose your own pants. This seems like a little thing, but when you think about it, it’s huge. You can wear whatever you want.

You choose to follow the company dress code because you like the consequence–which is keeping your job. You choose to wear a suit when you meet with clients because you’d like to land the account.

Last fall I realized I hated how overwhelmed and incapable I felt all the time. I got back into yoga. I looked into our EAP. Turns out the EAP would cover three therapist visits! I took a chance with the first one that returned my call and I love her. She’s like an aunt who completely gets me and is on my side. I’ve kept going and am taking control of things. It feels so good.

It feels so good that tomorrow morning I may take control by going all #4 on my breakfast.
