That the majority of “growing up” is just pointless rules created by societal expectations that don’t really affect your ability to be a part of society. You don’t need to stop sleeping with a stuffed animal. You don’t need to date by a certain age. You don’t need to change your wardrobe or your car or your house. You can still eat dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets, because, let’s face it, they’re delicious and will always taste better than their round cousins.
Yes, I run a blog that teaches you skills and tricks involved with “growing up,” but these are here whenever you need them. There’s no specific age you need to know everything by and there’s not going to be a test that decides whether or not you’re an adult. Things take time and everyone does things at their own pace and you need to drown out these bullshit rules and focus on what you need to get by.
And remember, “growing up” is a process. It doesn’t happen all at once, and, really, it never stops happening.
