Considering the nature of this forum, I thought this might be an interesting question: Mentally speaking, when do you think you stopped being a child/adolescent and matured into an adult?
Even though physically and legally I'm an adult, I think at around the age of 8 I entered a mental adolescence which I have yet to leave. While I'm able to see other people's points of view, realise the world doesn't revolve around me, and other hallmarks of maturity, I'm still a highly irresponsible person, and in most cases I'll end up doing what I *want* to do instead of what I *should* do, which usually means I end up leaving messes that the people around me have to clean up. A major concern of mine is that I'll still be just as immature in 5, 10, or even 20 years time.
So, do you see yourself as an adult? If so, at what point in your life do you think you became one? What events in your life do you think caused the change?
Keep in mind that being an adult does not necessarily mean you don't have an inner child.
