Adult Problems Absolutely No One Prepared Us For

Being an adult is like being on a roller coaster…constantly. You work, you tire, and you fend for yourself, over and over again. That’s just the reality of growing up, and there’s no escaping that. But sometimes, we can’t help but feel like some of the problems we face in adulthood are problems we never anticipated.

Sleep? We didn’t know that would be a thing of past once we became real-live adults. Friendships? Yep, those are suddenly harder to keep. Reaching your potential? Uh, let’s not talk about it. These are the adult problems no one told us about.

Oh, yes, those people. Other adults. You know a bunch of those folks as some of them are likely your friends.

Once you grow up, you’re no longer protected from the horrifying things adults have done over the years, and you realize you’re all kind of the same and none of you really know what you’re doing anyway. All you want to do is pet a dog since it turns out that people suck.
