People Are Revealing The Adulthood "Myths" They Wish They Knew Sooner, And Wow, They Hit Hard

"You don't have to find the one right career path for you immediately after school. Don't pressure yourself to 'get it right on the first try.'

It's perfectly normal to change jobs a lot; don't listen to the Karens."

"Even though my dad died and several other real-world problems happened in the following months (sibling's house caught fire, and they were displaced, and uncle had a stroke), I was less stressed than I was when I was still in contact with her. We still don't talk, and I'm happier."

"The number one stereotype that bothered me all my childhood was the 'smart nerd.' As an Indian teenager, I was expected to get into a prestigious college because I'm Asian. Substitute teachers would look at me when the smart board wasn't working. Kids would ask me what I got on the math test. I always had to be smart, or I didn't fit the 'Asian standard'. I think because of this expectation, I was hard on myself and made it my goal to fit that stereotype. It crushed my true identity."
