Here are 17 sure-shot signs to know that you are a young adult and no more the kid next door!
I was a teenager about two years ago. Being a young adult is slightly different, because of the way you’re seen as a young woman. You may believe that you’re still a girl, but the world sees you differently.
These are the various changes I noticed, while I still believed that I was a girl.
After I graduated from college, between the ages of 20 to 21, I have had strange conversations about the above topics, and I realised, I am no longer a girl. People don’t view me as a girl anymore, but a woman ready to tie the knot. Nobody wanted to know if I wanted to study further, or whether I have something else in mind. I feel like I entered the market and I’m fresh for sale. I felt like I was 1000 years old and not 21. I was uncomfortable with many conversations, and tried to avoid them.
Many times, I wanted to tell people to mind their own business, but decided against it, since I found comical ways to evade such conversations.
I have realised something though. I’m not a kid anymore, and being an adult is a lot harder than it looks.
