Buying a car, moving to a new city, or having a baby will make some people feel like a full-fledged adult. For others, though, it's easy to feel like a kid who's playing at being a grown-up. What causes this disconnect? You could be making one (or many) of the small mistakes that keep you from becoming a grown-ass woman. Once you're aware of these setbacks, however, you can make adjustments and feel like a real adult in no time.
So what can you do to make the leap to the grown-up's table? Adulthood can be defined in so many ways, but one aspect come up time and again: responsibility. Real adults take responsibility for their finances, relationships, and behavior. Sure, it isn't always simple to stick to a budget or maintain healthy boundaries with a difficult colleague, but that's what grown people do. These small mistakes are common and easy to make, but learning to take different approaches to your problems will make all the difference.
