22 isn’t exactly old. Maybe you are still “growing up”. I know I was at 22. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that either. You are young, it’s okay to feel that way.

 I think its a neubous thing  thing. Right now I am starting a masters program.  Fi is doing a doctorate.  Because of this we still live seperately and have had to push back our wedding date. We work full time, pay all of our own bills ( for the most part,  parents let us live at home rent free), and make “grown up” desisions ( ignore my spelling) like where should we get our health insurance from, and how long can i go with my car before my trasmission blows out. 

If neither of  us were in school, we would be working full time with our own place. That’s the olny thing that would change. We would have an apartment.

To me that shows your maturity level…you’re not overconfident…like the one post in the other thread that talks about the people that say ‘I’m so mature’ are usually not. At 22, you are bound to have doubts…heck, I still have them at 42! I remember when I had my 2 older kids and was in my late 20s looking at my kids and thinking ‘I’m a MOM!’…’Yikes!I’m a MOM!’. It still seemed (and still does at times) unbelievable.

I think it’s a day to day thing. I’m almost 21 (5 days!) and there are days I feel like I’m 13, unsure, goofy, and a hot mess. Then there are days I feel like I’m 30 (especially at work with the kids). I’m in control on those days and very calm and sure of myself. 
We’re always going to doubt ourselves at times. It’s the human condition. We jsut have to figure it out as we go.
