Do you often catch yourself fantasizing about the times when you didn't have to work, had no taxes, but always had freshly laundered clothes and sheets along with decent food on your table? Do you have a newly found respect for your parents? If you answered yes, then (sorry to break it to you), you are an adult. Being an adult is hard, but being a fresh one is the hardest, I'm sure a 20-something like me can relate to that. Not only is there suddenly no time to do practically anything you love, there's also the pressure of getting married, having children, buying a house while also maintaining a great career. No wonder so many of us are having the so called quarter life crisis. The expectations are too high and the stress is just too huge!

But there's always a silver lining. Bored Panda collected some of the most relatable comics abut the struggles of adulthood so you'd remember that we're all in this mess together!

Its true. The childlike mind never went away it was just supressed by the forced conformities of adulthood and those who act differently are called weird.

Asking an 18 year old (which is still a child in my opinion) what they want to do for the rest of their life is soooo futile.

That's exactly what's happening to me right now. Got 3 games I wanna play (or more), have time for none. The irony is, I'm working at a game company, and playing video games is actually part of my job. The assigned games, though. Which are fun and addictive too, but they're not Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest.

Adulthood is like a bear trap. You're innocently walking around without a clue- and poof, you're pulled into a scenario that you don't want to exist in, and you kinda wanna die, but your morals keep you alive until a hunter comes along and kills you.
