Early Adulthood is the stage of our life between the ages of about 20-40 years old, who are typically vibrant, active and healthy, and are focused on friendship, romance, childbearing, and careers. It is the primary aging stage of adulthood in which the body physically changes and is one of the hardest times in our lives after teenage years. Neither intimacy nor individual development can exist alone. The birth of a child initiates a human being into a life-long process of mutual adaption between the child, his or her intimate relationship partners and the broader social environment.
Intimate relationships and interactions affect adaptions to the changing needs and stresses that evolve with each stage of development throughout one’s lifetime. Intimate interactions from early adulthood as the basis of primary aging based upon the relationship later in life are formed. Environmental contingencies to which individual must adopt are rooted in these relationships. In an attempt to copy to the other people’s styles of relating, one must adjust his or her own behaviors.
Maturity in Primary Aging
Children entering adolescence in primary aging must begin to adapt to the adult world and its institutions while coming to terms with emerging parts of themselves. They discover themselves as having new sexual and emotional needs. As they make these discoveries, adolescents begin to realize the limitations of their parents. Taking responsibility for primary aging aspects of their own character requires distancing from authoritative.
Friendships in Primary Aging
Over the course of social development, the role of parents and friends changes significantly. As an adolescent undergoes emotional and physical changes in primary aging, he or she seeks to share their thoughts and feelings with those who are experiencing similar changes.
Intimate interactions increase between friends during this primary aging stage in life because they provide teens with opportunities for self-clarification. Through the formation of co-constructive dialogues between friends. teens can participate together in exploring and constructing Selves in primary aging.
Multiple Selves in primary Aging
During late adulthood, one must first confront the problem of multiple selves. For the first time, an adolescent realizes in primary aging that his or her personality changes from one situation to the next. This is the stage of early adulthood in life during which one looks to craft a narrative of the self that provides a sense of sameness and continuity.
A most important part of the intimate romance and friendship formed during early adulthood stems from the valuable and very adaptive contribution dialogues made with friends during adolescence. Personality differences can be identified by capacities of early adulthood to form intimate relationships characterized by the commitment, depth, and partner individuation based on interactions of early life.
