anyone else feel this way? I know i should feel like I'm responsible and stop goofing off, but I don't think I'm a grown up yet. Its so weird to be mid 20s and not feel any sense of belonging in the world.
I just turned 28 and STILL don't feel like a grown up
my focus is still on having fun and enjoying life and NOT being serious... and I read books with witches, wizards and trolls and stuff in them, I intentionally watch horrible movies and spend my time giggling and frequently open my mouth and speak without thinking first

It's a weird feeling!! I'm 26, definitely feel that way at times. (Almost all the time.) I was sitting at a conference the other day, in a beautiful large fancy hotel in a beautiful location. Surgeons speaking. Nurses, and a physical therapist, (my cohorts) all familiar faces of friends, sitting around me at a table. We were dressed up, eating smoked salmon and cucumbers, and fruit cups and a wide array of other things and listening. I recognized a lot of the faces in the room. Some doctors, some nurses. Listening to them speak. Then I just suddenly had a thought, like, "What the heck am I doing???" "I'm still a kid!!! When did this happen? I'm just a kid!!!!!" Some of the rest of my life, (hobbies, mannerisms, attitudes), would still suggest that I am just a kid, so it feels like nothing changed. I think that people are getting younger as time goes on though.

I think I still have a child spirit.
Which is not an excuse for not putting effort into improving my quality of life and ensuring my independence.

I'm turning 25 at the end of the year and I can empathize in many ways. It might have something to do with the fact that I'm still a student, have never not been a student, and will continue to be a student for the next few years. I don't have a lot of life experience and somehow I don't think that'll readily change in the near future, given that I'm very withdrawn.
I had more purpose and drive at 21 than I do now. Developmentally, I've taken a few massive steps backwards over the last three years. Still trying to pinpoint exactly what changed and figure out how to reverse it.
