Are you an adult?
When I was a kid, my parents were grown-ups, my grandparents were “old” (they couldn’t have been much over 50) and adults were everywhere telling us what to do and making good choices for us.
I’ve been waiting for that magical moment of realization that I’ve joined the adult ranks as an official member but it hasn’t come yet. I asked my last boss (nearly 70 years old) when it happens and he said he was still waiting too.
Is there such a thing? Does anyone ever feel grown? Do we all only pretend, to greater or lesser success, at acting the part?
Do any of you feel secure in calling yourselves adults?
