23 Times Muriel From "Muriel's Wedding" Was Every Twentysomething
You're terrible, Muriel.
When you're struggling to find full-time employment and it makes socialising kinda hard.
When thinking about your future makes you want to runaway from life.
When you look like an adult, but don't act like one.
When you feel like a disappointment in your parents' eyes.
When you realise how pointless your degree was.
When you're afraid you'll never get your own place.
When people your age are getting married, but you're still single.
When you receive an unsolicited dick pic and it strikes fear deep into your soul.
When you feel pressured to let on that you've got it all together.
But you don't have it together at all.
When you get jealous of other people your age who can afford to travel.
When you sometimes have to borrow money from your parents just to make rent.
When you have to go to great lengths just to get a date.
When you realise you're not a kid anymore.
But when you don't know how to "adult" either.
When you realise having one good friend is better than a billion fake ones.
When you can't afford to waste anything.
When you realise you're not as cool as the ~youth~ anymore.
And all your references are from the wrong decade.
When you pick up the courage to take a career/relationship risk.
And when it backfires.
When life seems so hard that you sometimes lose faith in yourself.
And when you give yourself a break because you're just figuring yourself out, and there's nothing wrong with that!
