Tell Us How You Think Age Pressures Have Affected You

We want to hear from you! What age-related pressures have you felt as you've grown up, and how have you dealt with them?

As we grow up, we all grapple with certain societal ideas about what's expected of us.

Maybe we grow up expecting that we'll get married by a certain age...

...and have babies soon after.

Maybe we expect that, by the time we hit a certain number, we should have reached a specific career milestone.

Maybe we feel affected by what our family expects or by what we see our friends doing on social media.

Maybe we pressure ourselves, always staying aware of our perfect life "timeline."

Or maybe none of that bothers us at all!

If you've felt age-related pressures as you've grown up and worked on the whole ~adulting~ thing, we want to hear about it. When you think of the pressure that society puts on you to achieve certain things in your life on a certain timeline, what do you think of? Let us know! The best responses will be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post sponsored by SK-II!

(Just a heads up — anything you send us is covered by the regular BuzzFeed User Terms.)
