    Hi!, I'm 27 now and it was when I hit 25. I live in with mum in a small community south of Japan, inside Miyazaki prefecture. Until I was 25 I was living comfortably with her pension and realised back then if she dies I can't longer earn that money and I'm alone on the world, so i started to study nursing, to become a male nurse. Then I realised I'm an adult and that i must plan for the future or something will go wrong with me.

    When I became completely independent from my parents I realized I was an adult.  I fully realized it after I had my first child.

    when I got in the car with the baby and realized the hospital was actually letting me take him home, that another human being was depending on me for literally everything, and that there was no back up if I screwed up or flaked out.
