Adulthood comes with the fear of this cunning world. During childhood life is all about playing games, bunking the classes and taking long power naps. But as we go towards the adulthood things change drastically and dramatically: bills are to be paid by us, marriage plans are made and retirements goals are set.
We start realizing our responsibilities and think about our priorities.
A question was asked on _ and so many people answers that when did they realized that are no grown-ups.
Here are some of the answers that people gave:
