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

    1. Brainy It’s not, sometimes it’s overwhelmingly, you just want someone to make all decisions and take all responsibility but then that’s not realistic. But one day at a time, we will pull through. Xoxo

  1. What a masterpiece!
    I think we had similar experience.
    As a student in senior secondary school, I started making vital decisions concerning my life. Maybe, this happened because my parents trust us to make good decisions. But, in all I found myself making crucial decisions at a very early stage in life. This helped in building my mentality in no small measure. But like u, money still eludes me n I depended heavily on my parents n brothers for finances. Not until recently, after graduation that it hit me very hard that I have to be financially responsible for myself now.
    So far so good, I have not being doing bad in it. But job hunting and rejections wasn’t palatable at all. But that’s part and parcel of life. We just have to remember what scriptures says in, Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)

    Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”
    So all our hope n trust should be onto the Lord to lead the way.

    1. We wax stronger with everything we pass through in our lifes and I am glad you are doing well that aspect so far. For the job hunt, Now I understand why some people give up and decides not to push forward in looking for jobs but if you put forward where you see yourself in future, you will have to fight through it. God is the light to our path, He will always lead us. Thanks for reading and commenting.. lot of love.

  2. You are gorgeous! I remember growing up all too well, I am still at it! Responsibilities can be freeing and suffocating at the same time. I have always had an independent spirit though and feel so great about myself when I have been able to do it on my own.

    1. Awwh, thanks Kristen, that was sweet. Yes, absolutely it can be at the same time but there is no feeling that can surpass the ones I get when I accomplish things myself, it tells me I can do it, I just have to start and put my mind and effort. Learning a lot bit by bit as I grow. I appreciate you reading my piece and commenting

    1. Nicole, I am so glad you dropped by and that my piece encouraged you. I remember the scary feeling and excitement all at the same time but one would eventually exit, I hope it’s the scary part for you too so every thing including the journey ahead becomes exciting.

  3. Omobim, congratulations on your journey through this rough period. I had the same thoughts in my mind when I was halfway through college (when I left my mom’s house) when I found a monitor opportunity. When thing led to another and after some interviews, I got a job. It wasn’t my dream job, but it paid my bills at the time. Now I’m struggling with depression it’s time for me to recover and not think I’ll be able to make it alone. I need money and support and it’s hard to ask for it when I’ve been totally independent from my parents for so long.

    1. Hi renata! Good to hear from you. Independence is great but you should feel free when to ask for assistance when you need one, they will sure lend a helping hand, don’t do it alone if it’s detrimental to your wellbeing dear. Rough period are temporary, it’s time for you to recover so go get all the support you need, you have mine already. ❀omobim1


  4. First of all, I need to tell you that you look beautiful!! Now, about your article, I just love it. It’s so well-written and I relate to every word. I’m not working right now, but when I was, trying to focus on work, taking care of a house, food, cooking, laundry. It’s hard work. When everything has to be done by you, that’s when you learn how hard adult life can be.

  5. Becoming an adult requires you to be responsible for your life and the decisions you make. Everyone must eventually get to this stage. For me it’s been a journey, sometimes exciting and other times I just keep wondering if I am getting it right. Well I have chosen to take it one day at a time on this journey. Nice piece keep up.
