In brief: Being an adult is

Wonderful and scarey.
For help getting ther, make an appointment with a therapist. You'll love being an adult once you get there!

In brief: Talk to someone.

Sometimes growing up is hard to do.
A good start would be to write down every reason you can think of why you are terrified to be an adult. There may be things on that list you can tackle now. Another simple but maybe not so easy step would be to talk to family and ask them to be open and honest and tell you how they see you. It may surprise you. Finally get counseling. Don't be afraid of it.
