When you're young, all you want to do is grow up. But then you hit your twenties and you begin to realize that growing up isn't as great as it once seemed. Because growing up doesn't just mean being taller, being able to drive, and being able to buy your own alcohol AND consume it. It also means having responsibilities, having to answer awkward questions about your career prospects and family plans, and, well, basically acting all grown up and mature.

If you're a twentysomething struggling to cope with adulthood then, as you can see from these tweets compiled by Bored Panda, you're not the only one.

If you life an life of exploration, this ought to never really change. And it is not a bad thing I guess. In video games, you typically start to gain experience (and level up...) *after* the tutorial...

In today's society this is true for most people. Particularly if it concerns raising children, alas.

I'm 41 and still avoiding it, and not sure why others actually do it on purpose.

Just wait until you get stuck between: "You've been married for HOW long?!" and "guess who's getting ANOTHER divorce".
