20 Quotes About Adulthood Perfectly Describe What ‘Becoming An Adult’ Actually Means

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Becoming a grown up isn’t as great as they say it’s going to be.

Adulting is the worst. We’ve all thought that at one point or another. You say to yourself, “I wish I could be a kid again. Life was so much easier.” But unfortunately, time doesn’t move backwards. So, here you are, stuck as an adult.

But what does it mean to be adult? Legally, the government considers a person an adult when they turn 18. And yet you can’t drink until you’re 21. Also, most people don’t graduate college until they’re 22. So at what point should you really be considered an adult? With so many life checkpoints, it’s hard to say exactly when that begins.

In my opinion, being a true adult doesn’t really start until you’ve graduated college (if that was your chosen path). When you’re in college, it’s more like you’re a pre-adult. Legally you can do things and by the end you can drink, but you’re still not sure what the best way to do laundry is. It’s like the purgatory of age.

Honestly, I don’t think anybody really knows when they become an adult. It’s something that just sort of happens. One day you wake up and you realize you can’t ride the same roller coasters you used to. Responsibilities like paying bills and work parties pile up and you come to the conclusion that you are officially an adult.

But let’s come back to the question of what does it mean to be an adult. Everyone probably has a different definition. Maybe it’s as soon as you enter the workforce, or maybe it’s as big as buying a house. Whatever you choose to go with, there’s really no one true answer. And really, there doesn’t need to be one. We all have our own way of doing things and approaching life. If everyone did it the same way, life would get pretty boring.

However, if you’re still feeling pretty unsure about being an adult, these words of wisdom about adulthood, growing up quotes and funny adulting memes make things a little more clear.

1. How do you act like an adult?

“It’s been very funny to try to act like an adult. Even getting dressed. Every day, I’m like, ‘Should I wear a blazer and walk around with an umbrella? Do I carry a briefcase?’ Because I’m trying to be

25 Funny Quotes About Getting Older That Prove Aging Is A GOOD Thing

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

You live and learn.

We all know it’s coming, but we’re still surprised when the first signs of aging make their debut.

The good news is that getting older is not all about wrinkles, creaky knees and forgetting why we walked into a room. Like wine, we get better with age.


In fact, aging can be a good thing and is kind of funny, too. Getting older can certainly inspire plenty of hilarious and relatable quotes and memes that will surely have you saying, “This is so me!”

One day not so long ago, I was minding my own business listening to satellite radio in the car while my husband drove us to whatever our destination was. Then, it happened — the DJ played a Def Leppard song on the classic rock station. How could this be? Classic rock is Led Zepplin and The Rolling Stones. They were the songs of my parent’s generation and so much older than me. Surely the music I listened to could not be considered classic rock, but here we are.

That’s when I realized I’m getting old.

On the plus side, aging doesn’t happen in a flash. It’s a process. Life is a journey and we’re meant to learn from it every step of the way. The key to accepting it is to change your lens and not solely look at your life as one in gradual decline. While some things may very well be in decline, life can also get exponentially better as well.


Time after time, research shows that older people are happier. The running joke is that they just don’t give a damn, and while that may be true, there are plenty of other factors that contribute to their overall sense of well being.

Older folks have a more positive outlook on life, they are no longer concerned with the minutiae, and there are fewer difficult decisions to make. Sounds pretty great if you ask me.

Here are a few funny quotes and happy birthday memes about getting older to remind you to keep an open mind, because it’s really not that bad and aging can be quite funny.
