"No, Little Charlotte, Santa Isn't Real. And Neither Is..."

Life's full of ups and downs, but it's easier to focus on the downs. A promotion that was wrongly given to someone else. Not finishing that novel you've been working on since before college. Discovering that maybe that widow's peak you've had since you were 19 might just be early male pattern baldness.

To know they weren't alone, Reddit user, u/crushedcreditcard, wanted to know about adulthood's similar disappointments when they asked: What's the adult equivalent of learning Santa isn't real?

Your parents are human too so they have their own opinions and thoughts and feelings and their own perspective like everyone else, so not everything they tell you is true.

They are no longer your teacher.

Being the best employee doesn't necessarily mean you'll be rewarded the best.

Some professions die.

Just because you were a good travel agent or fax repairman doesn't mean you can be one forever.

It's not just the professions which are dying. Many low level jobs staffed by middle aged people are on the brink of being made redundant.

I'm CPA with some knowledge of VBA. But I mostly work in auditing and due diligence. It is very easy to write macros in excel and we have streamlined our teams because macros automate so much of our work. Due to this, we haven't replaced our leavers in 3 quarters.

I have seen so many people work in payroll processing, accounts payable/receivable management and reporting which can be let go due to this.
