Let's face it, adulthood is no child's play. Especially in this day and age with dating problems, work woes and social media images to maintain. 

Mari Andrew, a 29-year-old Washington-based writer and illustrator began posting drawings and illustrations of her everyday struggles as an adult on Instagram.

She started the project when she was depressed and thought of scribbling as "an easy, enjoyable way to document little moments" of her daily life, she told Business Insider. "Who knew so many people could relate to my dating woes and existential angst?" she mused.

As Mari's Instagram following grew after the project, she said her goal became not just to document her own predicaments but to make these posts relatable to viewers as well. She wanted to make her audience feel "understood".

The idea is to get people to laugh while making them feel like they are not the only ones feeling this way, Mari said.
