I feel lost, confused, and scared…
You are about to embark on the next phase in your life. The excitement has been building all throughout high school. Decisions have been made (or perhaps not?) It seems the next step in your life is all anyone in your life can talk about. With all this pressure, how can anything go wrong? Right? Friend, let me give you some reassurance that this is temporary yet completely normal that you’re feeling this extra pressure. There is hope, though, I can help you to process all of the complex thoughts and feelings you’re experiencing so that you can make more clear decisions about what you want for your life. Because in the end, it is your life, you’re the one who has live it and walk in your shoes, so why not make it the most enjoyable experience possible.
What am I supposed to do with my life?
Let me tell you, this is another one of those major life phases that you are expected to simply relish in the excitement and express nothing but drive, motivation and absolute joy for the new experiences to come. Reality: this can be a very intimidating, confusing, and perhaps even lonely time in your life. This is normal.
What if I fail?
I want to validate whatever feelings you’re having, because, well…they’re valid! When we accept and validate the feelings we are having, then and only then, can we move forward with the business of life – successfully. Maybe you feel stuck in what to do next, maybe you feel scared about what’s coming next, maybe you feel anxious that you won’t succeed, maybe you feel sad thinking about the possibility of letting your family down. Whatever the case may be, please remember this is temporary and that more importantly you don’t have to go through it alone. I have lived this and helped countless other young adults to work through this complex phase of life, to go on and achieve wonderful things. Take a breath with me and let’s get this sorted out so you can start to enjoy this phase of life!
