September 16, 1997. My 2nd day at MCRD, San Diego. I was 18.
I was responsible and mature for my age before that, but that's what I guess you could call a defining moment.
I would say that it started at 19 when I moved out of my parents house and had to fend for and take care of myself. But it probably wasn't until about 22 that I fully grew up in a number of important ways. I realize that I didn't have much of a role model or mentor to help me navigate those years, and I had to figure a lot out on my own. And there was no WWW back in those days. Hell, I didn't even own a computer until I was almost 22.
First day in bootcamp. USMC. October 24th 2011. Was 17 years old.
Early 40s for me, I felt maturer but as others have said it is a continuing process.
Honestly, there are times i act maturw and adult like but there's also times i still have my kid at heart tendencies lol, like recently i bought a bluetooth super nintendo controller so i can play snes games on my phone
Definitely when I turned 23 and now im moving out of my parents home, because now im mature enough to make out on my own and become a man
after the age of 15
In December 2014 at 17 years old. I was way more mature than I was two years before that point. One day I realized that after my last year in high school I would not have to deal with a toxic environment like it anymore and that chapter of my life was nearing a close.
18-22. That's the age where I felt I was beginning to find myself.
i grew up in my early twenties then i matured and grew down in my mid twenties.
I've 'grown old' and had to do adulting by the time I was a teenager - but just ask my better half - I have not grown UP at all!
Hmmm... I'll let you know when that day comes :p
around 16 I guess
I was 16
When I went abroad and lived in Europe, and had my first internship
The day I became a libertarian
I grew up a lot when I was 15 and in hospital for almost a year. Likewise for when I started dating my current boyfriend, and had to learn how to deal with various difficulties with him as well as myself that arose. I think that my quite recent experience of having a seizure following unfaithfulness on his end lead to a lot of 'growing up' on my part, as I had to pretty seriously consider my own future and whether I'd want him in it or not.
(obviously I don't see growing up as something age dependent. I know many people who are almost 30 and with maturity levels fit for a preteen. Growing up is something reached through experiences, not aging.)
I am really growing up right this minute
I don't think I have yet lmfao
Many people told me when I was 15 (by people I mean 18+) that I am very mature for my age and I should relax and enjoy my childhood till it lasts.
I agree with them, I started to be unusually mature at that age.
19-20. I was finally forced to confront my anxiety and get a formal diagnosis. With that, I was able to get therapy to help me.
Im still groing up 😂
When does that ever stop happening tbh?
I think its always a work in progress 😎
Vote F. A huge part of me still hasn't.
I grew up when I was 18 and moved out of the house.
As in mentally? At this age. People tell me I am mature for my age.
There will always be an inner child inside me, but i know how to be responsable but once in a while the child in me comes out, i still don't think i'm fully there yet.
