Being an adult is not a easy task at all, it comes with so many responsibilities. Graduating for me now was an open eye to reality.
Though I became independent very early in my life, I still didn’t have to worry about making certain decisions for a very long time, it’s either uncle got it, dad and mum has it under control or somebody somewhere is taking care of things.
This has nothing to do with being brought up with silver spoon in my mouth because trust me it wasn’t 100% so. It was just the settlement feeling that I don’t have to worry about all of this yet.
Now that I have to handle everything and I mean everything by myself, look for job, get the bills paid for, get some cash into that pocket of mine to put food on the table and still be able to keep myself sane. That’s ADULTHOOD.
Not that I got abandoned by my family because I graduated, NOPE, that’s not the case at all. It’s just me trying to show that they haven’t wasted time, effort and money by training me and that I am a daughter they can be proud of.
I have to let them know that I am all grown up now and am responsible enough to absolutely take care of myself. This so far has been going well and has given me the opportunity to know and understand myself better. I have developed a greater confidence in myself going through interviews, meeting people, participating and exploring things I never imagined I would be good at, pursuing patience through each corner, forgiveness from every angle and finally increasing my kindness and giving status.
I also realized that what doesn’t kill me will only make me stronger and that I can do anything I set my mind on, Philippians 4 vs 13 says I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
I am ready to face all the new and exciting things life is bringing towards me one day at a time..
What is it that brought you to total light of ADULTHOOD? Graduating?
Lots of Love
