I progressed in my career going from being a trainer, to a manager to the personal training director to having my own company...and the whole time I was wondering when it would “hit” me.
When I would finally start to “feel” like an adult. Ya know, uptight, constantly complaining about (something political/financial) and seemingly serious for no reason.
Except it never happened. I became more responsible and developed more responsibilities, but I still felt like a kid.
I was still excited to lift, play video games and all the fun stuff I'd done before.
And that's when I realized. Most adults are just roleplaying what they see around them.
