Signs that you’ve re grown up are a lot more apparent than you think. For example, most people today live in a world with so many things to keep track of and so many distractions. There’s this need to be “on top” of everything, which is a good way to look at it, but it creates a lot of stress.
I think people who do it right are a little more aware of what theyre doing than they used to be. I don’t know what it is about being an adult that makes us forget that we were the same person as a baby, but I do know that I don’t think I would ever be that independent. My parents are both dead, and I’ve been an adult for about two years.
I have a very small circle of friends. I have one brother, and we have never had sex. I have only been in a relationship with a girl for one week. I think that helps. I know I am a bit of an outcast in my social circles. I feel like people generally expect me to be a little bit more “normal”. I just want to remind myself that I am not that, and it is all just a matter of perspective.
Yeah, because when we think of being “independent”, we think that being a person who is “not dependent on anyone” is so cool. Being independent for us is as far away from being independent for someone else as it is possible to be. We’re not “independent” because we choose not to follow the crowd and/or social norms. Being independent for us is about taking responsibility for ourselves, and making our own choices.
Being independent isn’t simply being able to take risks or being brave. It’s choosing to be your own boss and making your own decisions. It’s being able to go to bed at night without having to worry that you’re going to have to wake up and find someone snoring beside you. It’s being able to take care of yourself and have the time and money to do things you don’t have time for.
The fact is that being independent doesn’t just mean being able to take risks. It is also about living your life at your own pace. It is about being able to go to bed at night and not have to worry about whether youre going to wake up and find that youve overslept. It is about being able to do things that you dont have time for, and not feel guilty about it.
As an employee, I spend a significant amount of my time working in a company without the freedom I enjoy here at home. At home I get to do things I dont have time for at work. I am able to have more time for reading and for relaxing.
I am so lucky that I am able to have both my own apartment and my own company. I dont have to worry about the bills, I dont have to worry about having to go on short notice for things that other people may not have time for. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to have both of these.
But it’s not always great. In fact, it’s often a nightmare. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t suffer from the feeling that if I got something I wanted, it was going to be taken away from me. I’m not sure if this is entirely due to the time I spend working in a company without the freedom I enjoy here at home or if I’m just naturally self-centered and competitive.
For instance, my boss and I have a constant discussion about how we can improve our efficiency in our team. I say that I’m a hard worker and am always doing my best, that I’m a good leader, and that I’m not doing anything wrong to be so good. I always feel like I have to prove to my boss that I’m not wasting my time, and he feels the same way.
