10 Things Nobody Tells You About Being An Adult

What's an adult problem nobody prepared you for?

New Delhi:  Being an adult is hard. You have to work hard to make and save money, navigate tricky office politics, learn how to make new friends but try to keep old ones too, and come to terms with ageing parents. Surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be anyone preparing us for the particular challenges of being a grown up. So when Lauren Chanel Allen asked her over 12,000 Twitter followers to tell her about an "adult problem" that they wished someone had prepared them for, the responses came flooding in. They ranged from the very relatable (folding fitted sheets) to the ridiculous (the importance of quality toilet paper) and downright heartbreaking (grief, failure and toxic relationships).
