When was the first time you really felt like a grown up (if ever)?
I’ve felt pretty grown up for quite a while now. I have always been very independent and don’t like being helped with anything. I distanced myself from my parents at a young age and was very rebellious.
I moved out of my parents house when I was 17 and into an apartment with my boyfriend (now husband). I remember being out past my normal curfew one of the first nights and loving the feeling of being free.That was the first time I ever felt “grown up”…
Other than that – I’ve worked since I was 14, paid bills since I was 15 and lived in my own place since 17.
Whew, we have come such a long way since then. Craziness!!
