4 signs you’re finally an adult

Growing up into an Adult is just one of those things you have to do, no matter how awful it may seem at the time. And it’s not something that happens overnight. In fact, you’re not always aware of the great strides you’re taking until you wake up one morning in your late twenties and realise that you’ve somehow turned into an adult.

So, to help that moment of clarity come a little sooner, here are four signs that you’re officially an adult.

You’d rather eat a home cooked meal.

While you may still crave that cheeseburger every now and then, you generally prefer a home-cooked meal. Why? Partly because it tastes good, but mostly because you know that eating a well-balanced and nutritious meal will leave you feeling better than anything you can pick up at a drive-through. You even keep an eye out for healthy, delicious and easy recipes.

You don’t hesitate before making your own appointments

One of the scariest things is when you have to start making your own doctor appointments. Even scarier is when you have to pay for those visits to the doctor. Nothing will cure a hypochondriac quicker than a doctor’s bill. But when you get ill and don’t hesitate before calling up your local doctor, that’s when you know you’re an adult.

You care about insurance

From car insurance to medical aid, you have it all. You’ve thought carefully about things like legal insurance and you know the ins and outs of every policy you hold. You know that if something happens and you’re not covered, you’ll end up having to pay out of pocket and that makes you anxious. You no longer believe in leaving things to chance. There are few things more grown up than that.

You’re happy being on your own

You no longer need constant entertainment and you’re more than content to spend a Friday night in your own company. You work hard during the week and celebrate spending a little time on your own. This doesn’t mean that you don’t enjoy spending time with friends and family, it simply means that you don’t need it as often. You also completely understand the benefits of a good night’s sleep.

Growing up can be hard, but reaching the point when you actually start to feel like an adult can be great. If you’re not there yet, it’s definitely something to look forward to.
