Adulting is difficult.

Let us face the truth, adulting is difficult on all of us. No matter which school you attend, where we graduate from and high degree we hold. There are multiple facets of adulting that are mostly learnt the hard way, if ever that is. 

Our primary education creates a foundation of knowledge and skills for us to survive this world while appreciating its foundation, diversity and evolution. It  prepares us for the big big world that we are to survive and navigate s we step into it. 

I just wish they’d give us some skills that also prepares us for very real things which mostly are the basis to most make or break situations in our lives ahead of schooling.

Here’s some skills I wish I was armoured with before stepping out into this world of adulting:

  • How To Apply For A Job
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Drawing Boundaries
  • Domestic Life Skills
  • Mental Life Skills
  • Identifying Anxiety and Burnouts
  • Asking For What I Need
  • Savings & Finance Management
  • Filing Taxes

What do you think about it?

      I completely agree with you. A lot of complexes and traumas are rooted in our experiences at school.
      Here’s to hoping for a new generation of more aware care givers and educators.
