My Growing Pains

When I was 19, I left the comfort of my parents' home to challenge their statement that adulthood was a difficult and never-ending journey. One that would test every fiber of your being. Simply put, I was delusional and stubborn and just could not believe it was that hard. Then, it hit me. I don't know how to file taxes. A couch is how much? What do you mean by "4-oh-1-K"? Interest rates are how high? Needless to say, I had a rude awakening.

It wasn't my parents fault that I didn't know these things, they had told me many times, I just didn't care to listen. (To my parents, I am sorry and you were right hope this makes it up it you! :)

As I went down a rabbit hole trying to figure out how to navigate these new challeneges, I realized that I was not alone. I learned that no one knew what they were doing. That's how My Growing Pains came to fruition!

My Growing Pains is for young adults who are struggling to adjust to adulthood. It is expected for our parents to be the ones to guide us through this process, but there are some parents out there who themselves do not know what they are doing. You know what? That's okay! My Growing pains is here to end that cycle of not knowing and give you a go-to guide that you can use to at least understand the basics.

Let's get through this together!


What keeps all of this going!


You have to be able to hold yourself accountable in order to grow.


I strive to learn from different opinions, cultures, and lifestyles.


I value being upfront and transparent as this creates an open and ernest atmosphere.


Being self-aware and humble will get the both of us far!


You have to take a leap in order to become the people we want to be.


Work hard, play hard! (Don't worry, I believe in rest as well)
