Sometimes people get thrown into the world of adulthood through experiences. wether it be traumatic or not this can cause you to start thinking and acting more mature than intended. This can be seen through, say a person losing a parent, this could cause that person to try and take over the role that was just lost. Now this doesn’t technically make you an adult but it is on the right road to becoming a proper adult despite what caused them to get to this position. This sets them up to know how to support themselves on there own when needed and start preparing for the future. Now in my opinion the most important part of being an adult is the responsibilities. An adult needs to be able to handle whatever life throws at you and
