It's taken you 6 years what I've learnt in a few months.

In my defense, I wasn't expecting it to be this hard so I didn't observe carefully if not I would had notice it earlier just as you did beside we're humans and we have different learning capacity. It might have taken you just months but might even take others more years than it took me lol Cheesy

It has been just 6 years (18-23) into my adulthood and I'm already regretting growing up. Don't get me wrong, it feels great been able to take decision on my own without been yelled at but why does being an adult feels this hard. Things I could do before I could no longer do them as I need to adjust to being called an adult. Back in the days I could manage equivalent $300 for weeks but now it finishes even before I received it. The expenses is just too much. Being an adult kinda sucks. Tell your kids growing up let them not get too excited, adulthood is just a scam. You get enslave to expense. Although you can help ease the pain by planning their future and what better way to do that then educating them on bitcoin and start hoarding coins for them.

I also feel the same the never ending pressure, Deadlines and the bills .
It sucks to be an adult wish that we could just be kids I promise I wouldn't skip school anymore, I wish we could turn back into just being a careless and hopeful kids who enjoys their time without worries.

I think we all miss our childhood days,
The days where we don't have any problem except our toys or friends.
When money isn't important to us, Funny cause back when we were young we want to rush the time to be an adult to do things on our own to live on our own.
But now look at us stress on our work and bills not to mention that we have to keep track of our money because if we over spend we would be in trouble for sure.

I bloody LOVE being an adult.

I absolutely despised childhood and everything about it. It was a grotesque, constricting time and when I look back there are things about it that still amaze me. Why do what a blatant asshole tells me to do just because they're older? Including travel, school for me was from 7am to 5pm and then there was an hour or to of work to do at home too. Who the hell would take a job with those hours?

I left education at 18 or so but should've left at 4 or 5. Ever since then I truly cannot think of a single thing that school gave me to draw on. I learnt to read before I started school. Everything useful or enriching I've learnt after has been sought out and shoved in by me off my own back, and most of it during school too.

Much of what 'adulthood' entails - marriage, children, debt, obligation - is a conscious choice. None of that has ever been part of my life and it never, ever will. I didn't have more than $200 in my bank account for many years but I didn't care as there was always something to eat and somewhere to sleep, even if I didn't know where it was going to be at the start of that day, and I've long trained myself out of meaningless expense.

Adulthood is not a scam. The societal conventions that most people swallow and mindlessly pursue most definitely are. The whole solar system and beyond is waiting to be tapped if you figure out the approach that works for you.

I can compare the OP's predicament with what Michael Jackson went through before his demise - His childhood was snatched from him by fame. Little wonder that until his death MJ had sentimental attachment to kids & toys.

We can't bend back the hand of time. We grow up and draw nearer our graves each passing day. And for daddies, it isn't easy facing daily expenses.

Haha indeed it is. Especially here in the United States I feel like we are forced to mature and be an adult as quickly as possible. But age is also just a mental state so I would like to say stay young forever

OP :

I've felt similar last year on turning an adult.

It was exciting yet I was scared.

But what I've experienced till now is, you don't have to take and live by the rules of the society. Continue enjoying life like the same.

This same society thinks a 18 year old is as capable as a 35 year old since both are adults. And, a 17 year old is as incapable as a 2 year old since both are minors.

What I would suggest to you is don't give a damn on levels set by society. Have fun and don't let your inner child die.

Do what you wanted, sports, fun, games and everything, no need to feel shame of society!

Earn for yourself and if the expense is high, save gradually.

The society doesn't deserve a damn attention Wink

Hey l like your post. And it is true if your adulthood or ageing is turning out in a better form or gracefully. You won't feel any worry about the grey hairs if they are coming out.

That's the problem.

Money.

Being an adult is fine... If you had unlimited money. When you're a child, money doesn't really matter since you don't need to pay for things like rent, utilities, taxes, food, or college tuition. Give me $1 million and I'd be just as happy as I was back then.

After i finished reading the book Rich dad and poor dad, I came to realize that as a kid it doesn't matter of what your status in life is, the great thing to develop is to learn to be financial literate. It is normal to experience what OP said. So in other words, while young we have to educate our self how money works for us:, "who has gold makes the rules" (Quoted from the book), this is the taste of life. And Op is currently into it.

I think the root is freedom and responsibility.

As a child (assuming you are lucky enough to have a good childhood) you don't have the responsibilities, and can live a carefree life with everything provided for you, shelter, food, warmth, safety, parents to provide for every need. And this is true for teenagers and often young adults as well.

What you don't have as a child is freedom. Not really. It is your parents who decide what you can and can't do, where you go etc.

Whereas as an adult you get complete autonomy. It's up to you whether you work, where you go, where you live, who you spend time with, whether you have kids of your own etc. And with that comes total responsibility for your own life (and that of any dependents). You need to earn money, cope with stress, assess risks, make vitally important decisions.

The cusp of adulthood is probably that sweet spot where you are starting to get more freedom as you become a legal adult and your parents give you more and more autonomy, maybe you go away to university or something - and whilst you complete your growing up your parents still take many of the responsibilities away, so you have both freedom and no responsibility. But it's only ever a transitional phase, and it can't last!

nah it's not the adulthood. it's called "capitalism". if you "stay young" you just transfer your burden to another one.

Instead of telling your kids not to get too excited about being an adult, a better thing to do is to teach them how to handle stressful and difficult situations. How to avoid them and set themselves up for good things.

You're still young so you probably don't have much experience in these things.

Hoarding Bitcoin for them is also not a great strategy. Give an in experience kid Bitcoin what is he going to do? Continue having fun, not learn how to avoid terrible decisions, and then no experience on how to solve them.

Oh boy, I turn 39 this year and middle life crisis started to hit on me, too bad I do no t have the money to buy one of those expensive cars or a motorcycle... I feel bad than when you are my age things might be more difficult; that's why I keep believing in movements such as Bitcoin, we have to change our ways, and I think this is good starting point.

But yeah, adulthood is scam  Grin

Being on adulthood is not a scam. Life specially on adulthood would sometimes bring you problems which is considered as a normal occurrence. These problems or crisis serves a a challenge of how you can handle real life situations.

The irony of life, we all wanna grow up when we were kids and when we grow up we all wanna go back in time. I see my nephew (8 years old), he is so relax and free from all sort of worries. I wish I could go back and start enjoying my kids era but life is so cruel on my this desire Sad
