4. Buying your own car.
When we’re young, some of us start out driving our parents’ car. Or, some of us get a pretty crappy hoopdie handed down to us. But, when we’re finally able to buy ourselves our own car – or lease it even – it’s proof that our hard work has paid off in a big way.
5. Getting your first pet outside of your family.
When you move out and get your first pet – a dog, a cat, a bunny rabbit – it shows that you’re mature enough to care for someone else that isn’t just yourself. Sure, you may not be ready to have children – but taking care of an animal is a big deal.
6. Joining a gym and going regularly.
Joining a gym is a big step because lets face it – we’re all lazy AF inside. No one wants to wake up at 5 a.m. when you have a full day of work ahead of you and run a few miles on a treadmill, but if you drag yourself out of bed and put in effort to take care of your body – you should feel proud. Health is wealth.
7. Quitting a job you’re unhappy at.
Like I said before, quitting a job when you don’t have a backup plan is pretty scary. But, if you’re truly unhappy with where you’re at – there’s no problem with leaving. In fact, I think it’s pretty damn great if you know what you want and don’t want in life and are brave enough to go after it.
8. Ending a toxic friendship or relationship.
Growing up, you learn who is good for you and who is toxic for you – even if it’s a friend or a significant other. Being able to learn what is negative in your life is a big part of moving forward. Being able to walk away from people who weigh you down also shows how far you have come.
