If you want to feel good about yourself, don’t go on social media. It seems like everyday I see something pop up on Facebook and Instagram from friends my same age talking about luxury vacations, designers outfits and fancy nights out on the town. Meanwhile, I’m sitting on my couch in my tiny NYC apartment eating a crockpot meal. Sure, most of these posts are wildly exaggerated but sometimes, I can’t help but be a little bit jealous.

Then you get into the real world and realize how totally different “real life” is and specifically, how much being an adult actually costs. But cheer up. While you might not be living large just yet, you’re on your way. If you can relate to any of these 7 signs, you’re doing just fine.
