Throughout our young lives we are told that we don’t need to worry about the future. That we should enjoy the time we have as kids and fully embrace every moment that it has to offer. I remember being told over and over again that there is a whole world waiting for us to explore it, but they didn’t mention the part where once we turn 18 those dreams are shattered.
I’ve been an adult officially for two years and I can tell you that I still have no idea what I am doing. All of sudden I was thrown into this new world where I was no longer allowed to depend on the adults of my life. Everything I was told felt like a lie. And starting college wasn’t helping to it either. All the professors expected me to know all these things that no one had ever prepared me for. How was I supposed to know to look up deadlines and to know how to work the online courses? How was I supposed to know it was going to be this hard? There has been many times where I felt all alone, all alone in my decisions and all alone in figuring it all out.
There are times in which I question everything and wonder what I am doing. Even though I wasn’t prepared for all of this, for all the responsibilities that life was going to throw my way, I still know I can make it through.
