Dissapointed with adult life



January 18, 2019 - 2:53 PM

Dear Carolyn: Is being an adult just the process of becoming more accepting of disappointment in life?

I’m in my 30s and awakening to the fact that nothing in the life I have spent a decade building — relationships, career, skills, hobbies, home -— is fulfilling to me at all. Is that normal? Do people walk away and start over or is there another option?

Is the other option to get over myself? I don’t have kids but I am in a committed relationship with a mortgage and pets. I just wish I could start again as a new person. — Being an Adult
